    This could be a matter of life or death... One of the Syrian babies is not gaining weight, is all bone and can't walk right. They are 3 weeks old. Should I separate this one. She is stone cold, I've sat her on my (warm) hot water bottle

    If it was me I would probably try wrapping her up and getting some kitten milk and trying to feed her that! If she's a runt or not well...she might be to weak to fight for her share of milk! But I am no expert am afraid. But does sound like something has to be done! Good luck hun!! xx

    As horriblpe as it is...that was probably for the best...she was obviously ill and mum can either ignore the weak or kill them if they know they won't survive. Am so sorry for your loss!! XX

    Sorry you lost one hun but as others have said even if you had managed to help her pull through there is a high chance she had something wrong internally and wouldnt have had a long life anyway.
