Default Unanswered: New Nursing mom cat not drinking water

My friendly young stray cat gave birth 11 days ago. One died on day 2 (may have been sick or new mom slept on it, then day 10 another dies. last 2 seem ok. Mom doesn't seem to be drinking water but taking solids. I suspect this is 1st (and LAST) liter. Think she's producing enough milk for kittens to stay alive but not thrive. Also she doesn't groom groom kittens very much which I know is important to stimulate bowel, bladder function. Should I do the later & supplement milk or am I messing too much with her kittens? Will be heading for vets for more help. Any help out there? Be kind...this is my 1st post:>

Thank you so much for taking in the little mother! Are you giving her canned food? A cat on a canned diet won't drink much, if any water. Canned is best for cats (and for kittens too, when they are old enough). Feed her as much as she can eat.

She may need the help with the babies, do you have some kitten formula and a nursing bottle? I don't know much about taking care of infants, except what I have read, and apparently the best way to make sure they are getting enough to eat is to weigh them every day. Do you have a food scale by any chance?

If you are concerned about the mother's or the babies' health, definitely don't hesitate to bring them to the vet.

That is such a sweet picture. How in the world could we all ever live without our pets? I do not think it is possible.

Default виброкомпьют

Мечтаете как-то разнообразить сексуальную жизнь? Добиться принципиально новых ощущений позволят эротические товары

Один из самых распространенных методов достигнуть невероятных ощущений – <a href="https://afroditalove.ru/category/vibromassazher-vibrator/">купить вибратор</a>. С его помощью достаточно легко добиться дополнительной симуляции особо чувствительных зон и точек на теле. Только не пользуйтесь им в одиночестве, доверьтесь своему партнеру. Это хорошо укрепит вашу эмоциональную и физическую связь и позволит стать более раскованными друг с другом.</p>
Также среди секс-игрушек распространены эрекционные кольца, наручники, стимуляторы и смазки. Начните с чего-нибудь одного, не бойтесь попробовать разные варианты, и вы обязательно найдете то, что придется по вкусу вам и партнеру.</p>
Стоит отметить: <a href="https://afroditalove.ru/category/prezervativy/">купить презервативы</a>, вакуумные помпы, <a href="https://afroditalove.ru/category/vaginalnye-shariki/">вагинальные шарики</a>,фаллоиммитаторы, и остальные интим-товары вы можете в интернет-магазине «Афродита» (afroditalove.ru).</p>

My cat sometimes left kittens for long time and I always feed kittens from small botel with nipple.

I think you should do the latter. If the mom cannot supply her kittens with the exact amount of nutrition they need then they might get poor health. Just do whatever you can to help those young kittens.
