    hi the breeder of my new baby queen emailed me the other day to say that she is having to hand rear the kitten as it seems the mother may have ran out of milk :( the kitten is two weeks old !
    anyone know what the chances of a two week old kitten pulling through ?

    Hi, hand rearing is one of the most difficult tasks a breeder has to take on and is very commonly needed. The babies need feeds at two hourly intervals right throughout the night as well. I have known of more not making it than those that have. I am sure your breeder put every effort in to pull your baby through, as it is heart-breaking for the breeders too when this happens. Very sorry for your loss :( and hope you find another baby soon.
