    I'm sorry your kittens arent surviving. I've had to deal with that loss too, I know that look of pain on a dead kittens face Its awful.
    They sell a kitten milk replacer at Wal-mart or anyplace that sells pet supplys. They make a tiny bottle to put it in too.
    Sometimes that first litter a cat has, they just don't know what to do. The fact that they were premature may be an indicator that there was something wrong with them to begin with. I know its hard, but sometimes nature takes care of things this way.
    Chin up and take care of mommy cat. She may be having some health issues of her own.

    Oh I know I've had to bottle feed kittens before. I whole litter of 3...
    Well there is only one left now! I didnt want to take them away from Mamma because I didnt have any thing to feed them with. So I went in there and both kittens werent moving. I felt the one and knew it was gone, I felt the other one it was still a little warm and very sallow breathing so I just rubbed it really hard to get its body moving and 'awake' so this last one is with me now. My mom went to petsmart to get bottles and formula. I just hope she gets here soon.
    But only half were the premeies that didnt have hair that's why we were thinking they were just to sick and dieing. But when the first healthy one died that was kinda a shock and now we KNOW that she is just squishing them.
    The interesting thing is, my fav one is still alive. He/she reminds me of a silver back gorila with the black head and silver back, black legs...
    But now that im going to be bottle feeding this guy im not going to want to give him up.
    This one is actually the only one who didnt really throw a fit when I was checking them out or in there, if it was crying I would just meow like mamma cat did put it by my face and it would calm down.
    K well here are some pics of our last baby!

    Ok I just went on google and looked at a bunch of pics trying to see if its a boy > (:) or a girl >(;) and its a BOY! Lol Im going to name him Bubba Blue! Cause he was the biggest of the litter and he has the silver coat.
    I did have a cat named Bubba and he had to be put down, usually the names are untouchable to new pets. But I think I can make an exception. Yah my mom is going to have a hard time trying to convince me to get rid of this baby.
    He is soooo soft to its like your not even touching him!

    Well Bubba Blue died I tried to bring him back but he just didnt wake up. I brought him with me at the barn so he wouldnt miss a feeding. He almost died on the way there. I look at him and he wasnt breathing/moving so I rubbed him real good till he started crying. I had him in my bra so I could keep moving and keep him warm. Then my BO gave me a hand warmer so I had him in my pocket. Right after his last feeding I was teaching a lesson and I checked on him and he wasnt moving or making any noise. I pulled him out and tried rubbing on him again... Just didnt wake up

    So no more babies.

    Aww :( I'm so sorry to hear this. *hugs*
    There must have been something wrong with them though.. Like Vida said, sometimes nature takes care of that kind of thing on its own..
    It doesn't make it any easier though.

    No it doesnt make it easier :( it makes it harder when you try and save the poor guys life you know. When he dies right in your pocket... I really wanted them all to live but what are you going to do. No we can focus on finding Mamma kitty a new home. My mom wants me to put an ad on CL.

    Foal
    My cat had two litters that she let me be there for---in fact, INSISTED I be there for. That was a few years ago. Out of those two litters, one kitten died---it was very sad. Now, I have a pregnant cat I took in, and could be having them any time! I'm worried about how this will go, she seems like she is 8-10 mos. Old---very young. Also, she was a stray that was hanging around my friend's trailer-court starving. She looks pretty funny with her scrawny legs, and that big belly---poor thing. I'm hoping she gets through the birth with no complications.

    Unhappy

    I'm so sorry all the kittens died. It would be very hard for me to give up the momma cat after going through all that with her. I hope she gets a really good home.

    No one wants her :( I feel really bad for her to. But at least she is happy here and she has a good home. She's on lockdown in the cat room becuase she went into turbo heat, even my female cat was wanting her!
