    It sounds like they're just helping each other out which is brill. If all kittens are gaining weight and mums are ok with each other (which sounds like they are) then I see no problem with it :)

    Hi Julie,
    All sounds good to me, they are used to each other anyway aren't they so seems natural I would think to help each other, these cats really do have a lot to answer for don't they bless them or maybe its that we need to learn more prob more like it ha-ha glad all going well for you tho:D:D

    Quite normal, I have two Mums sharing five kittens at the moment. No cause for alarm at all.
