Question
Our cat has stopped lactating and the kittens are only 2 days old. What can we do to help?

Answer
Hi
well firstly you need to get your queen to a vets as soon as you can to see if they can give her anything which can help her produce milk again.

In the mean time you will have to hand rear the kittens yourself, this is a tough job and one which will take a lot of time and effort on your part.

can I recommend that you read my page about this issue here for more advice as to how to go about this.

I hope all works out well for you all.
