Because Ilun (2b) is blood type-b (and Insalah is not), she won’t be able to breast feed her singleton (5a) for 48 hours (so neonatal erythrolysis is avoided). Since Haute (1a) is yet breast feeding her kitten, the new born has been presented to her right after birth, and she accepted it! No bottle feeding will be needed and the newborn will be able to take immune advantage of the antibodies present in the natural milk (which is not in artificial milk).
From 1/27 to 2/02, 2018
With the first walk, the transition into solid food gets started with “Mother & Baby Kitten” mousse from Royal Canin.
Unfortunately, kitten-4b fades away on the fourth day and dies. Among newborn kittens is common that between 10% and 20% won’t make it the first week. And often it is unavoidable. Their energy return and wait for another chance with a stronger body.
Haute(1a), Kitten-4a, Kitten-4b
Last 24 hours later the delivery is resumed and the second kitten (4b) is born.
All the sudden the delivery was stopped, nevertheless, Haute is calm and caring the first kitten (4a) perfectly.
