I second Lorrie's advice. I now have a mama with 3 kittensthat were unusually large when born. My vet said that as long as they weren't crying for more than a few minutes, they were well-fed.
I suggest some plain yogurt and kitten food for the mother. --- On Thu, 4/16/09, Lorrie <felineres...@kvinet.com> wrote: From: Lorrie <felineres...@kvinet.com> Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Stray To: email@example.com Date: Thursday, April 16, 2009, 5:04 PM If the babies are fat, and healthy looking and not crying.
