    Hi everyone.

    Just to let you all know that Nala my Birman (some of you may have seen a previous thread regarding her) went into early labour this morning at only 5 weeks pregnant.

    She is currently with the vet who is trying to delay labour and save these little babies but it's really not looking good :(

    I will update when I know more but sat at home waiting for the phone to ring at the moment which is really killing me!

    Just had a phone call from the vets.

    They have not been able to stop labour and she has given birth to 3 kittens.

    One was stillborn and another died shortly after.

    However one seems to be hanging in there!

    It is very small but fully developed.
    The vet has the kitten on a heat pad and is inserting a feeding tube to try and save this little one!

    Fingers crossed now!

    She is doing very well.

    She is very tired as you can imagine!

    They are about to give her a scan and see if there are any more kittens as labour now seems to have stopped and then it's a case of waiting and seeing what happens.

    The vet suspects that any other kittens remaining will ahve already died in which case it's a c-section to remove them but you never know.

    I am trying not too put too much hope into the little one surviving as he/she is soooo early and the vet says it's a miracle simply that it's still alive now.

    From looking at the kittens the vet estimates that they are 3 weeks early so she was a little more pregnant then we intially thought but 3 weeks is a long time in terms of a newborn kitten.

    Thats not good news about the little one, being so early. What has the vet said about future pregnancies?

    The vet thinks that the early labour was due to her being a little young (11 months old) and it should not affect any future pregnancies which is good news.

    Little one is still holding on, a pure white female.

    How sad :(

    I hope Nala is doing well and am sending positive vibes for the little one.
     
  18. I am hoping that this little kitten survives, and am sending positive thoughts for both the kitten and mum!
    Not the right time maybe but did you puposely breed her at such a young age?
