One of the kittens was a little weak and wobbly, he kept getting dehydrated. We thought a few times he was a gonner, but no, he strived forwards and each time picked up and fought for his place at the milkybar. Momma had to hand feed them all for 20hrs to begin with. Dad's blood is a different type and it can kill the MiniCats. Then Pearl and Momma struggled for a further 6hrs trying to get the milkybar up and running. Finally, the end of a canula did the job with Pearl laying still and Momma sucking on that tiny tube to get the milky to flow and flow it did, right into her mouth... pthhh... salty stuff that is! Finally, after a long 26hrs all five boy cats were latched on and drinking their fill with a further top up from the syringe for the weakest ones. Now they are all gaining weight and fighting for the best nips as well as tasting Mum's raw turkey dinner!
So until we know more on that - I hope you have enjoyed the monthly round up on some other Maystarlings.
