And yes, that was meant to be a sad face. She has no idea how to care for them. One already died while we were gone. She was outside when she had them, and I can't even find the rest. And it's raining, and I has the sads!

Well, I have a small update....The one I thought was dead, wasn't. I found two more just in random spots around the yard. She was laying cleaning herself, so I put on some latex gloves and picked them up and put them near her. She didn't run from them, but she didn't do much with them either. I am really trying to get her to feed them because I just don't think I have the time to keep up with them.

Thanks for the virtual hug.

hopefully she has some maternal instincts that will kick in. How old is she?

I'm not too sure how old she is because she just wandered up one day. But, DH thinks she's probably not even a year old yet. I didn't even know she was in heat..she showed no signs. I just drove up one afternoon after work to catch a male cat having his way with her......grrrrr.... But, needless to say, she's getting snatched up and taken to the vet very soon. Do you know how soon after having a litter they can be spayed?

Hmm I really don't know. I would think a few weeks after, maybe until the kittens are weaned, but not sure.

She had 5 total. All were scattered throughout the yard and all still have their umbilical cords attached (one still had it's sac attached ) I had some KMR, so I was going to feed them. As I was, Sugar (the mom) was loving up on me. I said oh no you don't! So, Kolby and I laid her down and put each kitten to a tit. She laid with them for about an hour and nursed them. So, maybe there's hope.

Nope, despite all our efforts, all 5 kitties died.I was afraid this would happen since she has absolutely no maternal instinct. I've never seen anything like it.

That's the only thing I can think of. I don't even think she knew what was going on.
