    Oops sorry, they are all feeding at the moment so going to weigh them after they are finished.

    The little one is a bit more active now and we're putting him on the teat more so mum has now stopped nudging him away and will actively pick him up to bring him with the rest of them.



    I want to keep them all but I can't :( at least one though, I hope.

    No, dint have any scales, weighed em now tho.

    Think she had enough upset needing c-section without me grovelling around in her nest, weighed em once but my scales are the balance scales so not very accurate, they were all approx 100g tho. :)

    well you had a good few weeks to buy them. and yes a c-section is awful but you Need to weigh the kittens every single day to see how much they are gaining, for 10-15seconds of that could save a kittens life.


    hmmm not to good :( I have advised what to do on the past 2 pages of this thread, maybe go back and read it? Cant really say/do much else.

    I did yes, sorry I keep forgetting to answer I think I have mummy cat's baby brain.

    He's put on a bit of weight so at least he's not lost any. Will continue to top him up during the night

    The vets said they were all a good weight and size, so there was only one day i didn't weigh them, and mums health is just as important, they'd been kept away from her for long enough with out me carrying it on :)
