    Hi all came down at 5 no kittens , came down at 7.45 to 2 kittens stone cold on utility floor , placents still attached! Sorted out the placents and gace them to honey who licked them dry , they have now warmed up tho both aren't rooting for nipples , there is still more to come cos honey is purring and keep changing postion ! , kittens are squirming about and one is making a noise ! Seeing that I don't know how long they had been born could have been at 5 past 5! How long do I let honey labour for before getting worried cheers julie I'm so stressed I missed it

    I would keep a close eye on her - and make sure the two baby's keep warm! The babies won't feed if they're cold. Do you have a hot water bottle or heat ped you could use? Some girls won't settle and feed the kittens until they're all born. The most important thing at the moment is to keep the babies warm and stay on hand to help Honey with the delivery of her other babies.

    Good luck and keep us updated ... And DONT PANIC!!!

    i agree with above post, keep them warm, thats the main thing, she will probably settle down once they are all born, has she had any more yet.:)

    One of my cats was groewling. seemed like she was growling at kittens but i think it was more due to being in pain with the labour.

    Good luck x
