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.
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?
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.
