    Three kitties after midnight . half hour intervals But milk if any seems scarce although all 3 are hanging on to teats for dear life. They are all big kittens but cannot get them off teats to weigh them yet.Photos following.

    All 3 and mum fast asleep at 8am . I managed about 4 hours eventually. They all weighed in at 100 gm so I was happy about that. :)

    Yes the milk took almost 24 hours to come on full stream but the kittens persisted in suckling and it all paid off. They all seem contented now. I will try and get another photo of them when I get chance.:)

    Congratulations on your gorgeous kitties :001_wub:
    Glad to hear the delivery went well and now they are getting lots of milk - they obviously knew it was there if they tried hard enough :D
    looking forward to watching them grow
