    Had a litter of 5 today but when i found them all 5 were out of nest and cold, i managed to bring 1 back but the rest didnt make it :(

    As the days/nights are still cold the single baby wont survive so ive bought mother & baby indoors.
    Baby is in an open cat carrier and Walnut has free range of my daughters bedroom with food water & litter tray.

    Ive been seeing to her and baby and ive checked and baby is really fat which indicates its been fed.

    Walnut is loving the fuss she is getting and is laying out on the cool flooring and purring :D at 1st i worried it was grinding the teeth in pain but it was so soft and she is laying out with feet out and also happily binkying about.

    She is 1 happy mumma at mo.

    Keep the littlen in your thoughts as a single baby doesnt always make it but im trying my hardest to get the little 1 through the 1st few days.

    Will keep you updated.

    oh no, poor little bubbas :( would it be worth popping a warm hot water bottle under the nest for a bit of added warm, and putting a small stuffed toy in for the kit to snuggle up to

    sending lots of vibes for the little un, glad mums taken the move well bless her

    R.I.P little 1, you fought hard to survive and your mummy tried her best, even still tried feeding you when you had grown wings.

    :( :(
