If the babies aren't crying like they are in distress, and they are moving about with a normal amount of energy, then give momma another day or socolostrum comes in prior to the milkand it is all they need until then. IF you are truly worried, you could offer them a teeny bit of KMR

I have heard that you can give quick nourishment to a newborn by putting a little corn syrup on its gums -- not sure if this is appropriate to this situation, but the idea is that it absorbs into the system without the kib having to expend energy digesting it. If it turns out there is some

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

Elisa, I can't give you any guidance on the drugs, but I know others will jump in on them. But if you don't want to keep your kitties apart, and more importantly if you think it will stress Spats to be apart from your other boy, you should let them hang out as usual. If for no other reason than
