    Hiya, aww poor mummy, shel be fine though...and i hope the kitten is fine too..prob be best if you get some replacement milk, i use lactol-get that from pets at home, also youl need a kitten/puppy feeding set, it contains bottle teats and cleaning brush...
    just incase you do need to help...

    Feeding is every 2 hours im affraid and does take up alot of time, but the baby needs to survive somehow...

    Also you will need to wipe their bottoms after each feed to help stimulate their business...

    Keep mummy cat warm and just keep feeding her as normal...she hopefully will feed the kitten but theres a guide foor you just incase she doesnt...

    good luck, keep us posted...

    I've never had to hand feed, but it sounds like it's a hard slog, so good luck with that. I hope Mummy cat recovers well and quickly and that little one is safe and sound!

    hey she should still feed straight after the my queen did but just have some lactol ready and feeding ever 2 hours is tiring but worth it in the end :)

    hope she gets well quickly and the kitten is nice and healthy

    my queen was home within 2 hours of taking her for the op :)
