|The smaller kitten is actually doing a lot better I think. I was worried it wasn't getting bigger but I think it's made progress and it seems to be eating alright.
At this point there's only one I have been taking care of it's all white, the others are fine and Kazi is doing great with them. It actually is one of the larger kittens she had and it has been having trouble nursing for some reason, it just wanders around her crying and never latches on. I have been making some progress with giving it formula, it will actually suck it out of the syringe now. However it still won't suck on her nipples and when it finds one it can't hold on it for more than a second or two. This is how the smaller one was though and after I fed that one it improved so I'm hoping if I keep feeding it it'll latch on on it's own.
Kazi seems to be fine with me and kittens, infact If I don't sit next to them she'll wander off or try to take ONE under the bed. Several times she took a single kitten under the bed and didn't come back for the rest, but that only happens if I leave her alone. If I try to actually take the white kitten away it screams and then it's impossible to feed. It won't take the formula unless it's next to it's Kazi.
It has been eating good from the syringe tonight though and the only concern I had was that it wasn't pooing but it finally did about twenty minutes ago. I think there was a bit of harder poo blocking the rest cause once the harder bit came out a whole bunch more came and Kazi saw it and cleaned it up for me. I can't tell you how happy I was to see it poo either Kazi hadn't been cleaning him as much as the others and I was really concerned cause I couldn't get him to poo.
Thanks for the website links. We've been trying to keep food near by her and water but she just won't drink enough water. I just opened a can of wet cat food for her though and she's eating it. We bought her a bunch of one brand and she won't touch it, when I switch with my mom for her wet meow mix cat food she's been scarfing that. Her litter box is only a few feet away, she's not using it as much as usual but she's using it a couple times a day which seems normal for a new mom.
I'm concerned however because I have to go out of town on Monday for a doctors appointment you see I'm expecting too and they want to do some tests on my baby to make sure it's heart is developing right. I'm worried I'll be gone half the day and even if I could get someone to check on them My boyfriend (who is the one that Raised Kazi and her brother) and I seem to be the only ones Kazi is really comfortable with. The first day she was fine with everyone that came by to have a peak, but yesterday she was growling at most of the people that came in the room, all but my mom.
I got a cute video of them last night I'll upload it so people can see it, you can easily tell in the video which kittens are the strongest.
