Awwww ... when my recently departed female gave birth to her only litter, she had sever uterine inertia. Her uterus was not strong enough to push them out. I delivered 3 myself, having learned how from a book by **** Warning ... Gross Alert*** manually stimulating her cervix (yes, kevin I was wearing gloves) #4 was born in the animal hospital, #5 & #6 at home (#5 is on the right in my profile pic and #6 was stillborn) #7 were born in the hospital and #9 died during an emergency C-section and spay. We had to hand raise a litter of 7 puppies that took 2 hours to feed and had to be fed every 2 hours. The runt would not have made it if my dad had not come over and spent all night dipping a face cloth in formula and letting "stevie" suck on it. The change in that puppie was amazing, from both the love and the food. He went to the sweetest lady who wanted a dog that would love and protect her, the only kinder dog on the face of the earth is her brother whom we kept.

 

I'm sure Cubbie will do fine with his new mama

Hi Luc!

 

Marina reminds me of a mama lion. :2hands: You just don't screw with a mama lion or get between a mama and her baby. :) Reading your blog entry I just had to chuckle. Growing up I had all type of kittens and cats and now I'm finding that I really miss the combination of love and snootiness all rolled into one. I'm glad that Marina took control of the situation ;) and from the sounds of it, Cubby will have a definate fighting chance if she has anything to say about it. :great: Keep us updated, I really do enjoy reading your blog.

 

Hugs to you and to all those that reside in your home. :hug::hug::hug:

I'm so glad it worked out! :2thumbs:

 

Hey Luc! Don't worry I bet Cubby will be fine! Some cats really do have much better maternal instincts that others. When I was a kid we had this old cat, Tabitha, and she had a daughter, Dusky. Anyway one time they both had kittens within days of each other. So we set them up in neighbouring boxes. Well Tabitha, loved kittens, and Dusky was an inexperienced mom (it was her first litter), so grandma decided to step in an raise them ALL. The next thing we knew she had 11 kittens in the box with her! :wacko:

 

We also did end up raising one or two from a bottle. The first one lived to be 15 years old (he just passed away not quite a year ago :( ). Anyway there's lots of chances for Cubby, and we're all rooting for him!

 

Take care,

Kevin

This made me know he's going to be OK: "his cry is deep and loud and insistent". Sweet, sweet baby cat.
