It's hard working feeding kittens - I had to teach ours to lap kitten formula as we had to take them from the allotment site just after 5 weeks ;)
That was hard enough but newborns need feeding 24/7 - as you found out! Glad Bramble is doing better. :)

My sister hand reared 2 kittens whose mother got run over at about 3days old.
A woman's place is in her garden.

Been to the vet, Brambles temp is down a bit more, she's very impressed with her 8) we go back on Wednesday morning for her next check however, if we are concerned about anything, they'll see her immediately :) 

When I was about 3 my mum found me teaching our neighbours kittens how to eat their kitekat :lol: some pi

We're getting some pics together and hope to post them tomorrow night, Eils has 2 exams tomorrow so she's a bit preoccupied ;)

Brambles temp continues to go down :D  She and the kits stayed in our bedroom last night so Eils could get a good sleep before her 2 exams today.  I gave the kits a bottle feed, Bramble had a bit of a rest and some food, she was ravenous poor girl, she cleaned and settled the kits and we all fell asleep.

Now, Pip and Mist are spoiled loved and although I never held with pets up stairs let alone sleeping in the bedrooms, Mist had a few problems re toileting at night, so to give her a chance to wake us if she needed out they moved in with us, since then everything has improved.  Mist's a very mothering dog and has been very protective of Bramble and the kits, she kept checking on them last night and round about 2.30am I was woken by kits crying, I investigated.  Two kits were in the nest on their own :ohmy:  Bramble had decided under the shelves in out bedroom, a place she'd been checking out last week, was the perfect place to make a new nest ::) I had to close them in the nest box carry case she was so determined to move them. 

After tomorrows check up she can choose her new nest site but until them I'm the boss, well I like to think so anyway ;)
