MAMA KNOWS BEST

Miss Kelly and her babies seem to be doing pretty well tonight. I checked on her throughout the day and most of the time I found her nursing the kittens. That's what I was hoping for! I peeked in on her a few minutes ago and was pleasantly surprised to see the three largest kittens sleeping peacefully in a pile while Kelly allowed the smaller ones to nurse. That little mama cat is getting the hang of things. How smart is it to let the smaller kittens nurse without having to compete with the larger ones? What a clever kitty. Tonight Kelly didn't jump out of the bed to see what I was doing when I entered the room. She lay quietly with the three kittens so I observed the family for a short time, told her what a good mama she was, and then left the room.
By jove, I think she's got it.....

I am SO happy she finally got the hang of it. I knew she would! Just takes a little time. AND I'm glad you are giving us updates on them. They are so precious and what a wonderful thing you are doing for these tiny precious little creatures! :)

Have a great day!

Thank you for your kind comments and welcome encouragement. I'm such a worrier when it comes to animals. It's hard to know how much to check on them and how much to leave them alone and let Kelly do what she needs to do. Did I mention she and her babies are in the bathtub of our main bathroom? LOL. It's a perfect place away from the rest of the cats and the dog and I can control the temperature in there. We're using another bathroom so she has that one to herself.....Kady
