    Ellie is a fantastic mummy, she has surpassed any expectations :) Am so proud of her :) :)

    Sadly, we took the little boy who was ill to 2 vets, had 5 opinions, I asked about ops any sort of feeding but they all said that he was dying and would have a painful death if I left him, I stayed with him while he was pts :(

    I wont say how its done, Ive never seen it before but Im pleased that it was very very quick, not even 2/3seconds so he didnt suffer but I couldnt stop crying, lucky the vets all know me and just ushered me outside to leave as I Was so upset, couldnt talk for th rest of that day, I know that alot of people will say he was only a kitten, 1-2 hours old, but I felt him kick, he was born, and I find it heart-breaking.

    I was then rushed to hospital later and I need to have a major operation, all this on my birthday :rolleyes::

    The rest of the babies are perfect, we have 2 boys & 2 girls :)
    They will all be pedigree named after Elvis :001_smile:

    So, so sorry to hear that the li'l fella didn't make it. :( You can take comfort, however, in knowing that despite him being so young, you were still prepared to do everything in your power to save him. Sometimes though, the kindest option is the hardest decision to make.

    Also very sorry to hear that you have been very poorly too. I wish you a quick & speedy recovery. May I suggest that, for this year only, you be like the Queen & have two birthdays. Then you can make sure the second one is a good celebration. :)

    Your other four babies are adorable & I look forward to seeing more piccies as they grow. :)

    Hi thanks everyone :) Ellie is such a great mum, I am really shocked, we both really thought that Id be hand feeding and showing her what to do, but she just clicked instantly, instinct is a incrediable thing! :001_smile:

    She takes just after Meg, also had the same amount of kittens AND the same colours as Megs first litter!! What are the odds on that?? :blink:

    Here are the names:
    CaramelDreams Elvis - Boy
    CaramelDreams The King - Boy
    CaramelDreams All Shook Up - girl
    CaramelDreams TeddyBear - Girl

    Teddybear is my fav elvis song & all shook up stood out, I did want love me tender but its too long I think! And I wanted elvis's name and he is the king of all cats so I had to have that to lol!

    They are really nice little kits, really lively and outgoing and only a few days old lol! Going to be a handful, cant wait to see what the girls patterns will bem they are Seal mitted, but may also be 'torbie or tortie or lynx!' and the boys are red mitted, and may also be lynx, wont know until about 4-5weeks, or they could have blazes!

    Ah thanks I stopped celbrating my birthday a long time ago now! get worse every year! Ill celbrate is the day after I think!

    Goodness---I don't check the forums for a day and I miss an entire new litter!

    So sorry to hear about the little one lost, but the others are beautiful and it will ease the pain in your heart one day to know you did the best for him. I've never been in that situation, but when our kittens died, I ached for months and still miss them, but I know we did all we could and gave them the best, and that knowledge has helped.

    Also so sorry to hear you'll need a major op. Best of health to you. Will be thinking positive healing thoughts.

    TB, you have not answered my question!! Enough so you wont miss one if I sneak over and steal one??? I think the Elvis names are great....plenty of inspiration there for another litter even. Sorry to hear you lost one from the last litter....when Nellie had her kits, the second one born was deformed and I was heart broken, still remember and wonder how it would have turned out.:mad:
