Default Re: My little lady just had hoglets ... Worries

she was awake this morning and out of the nest, she was walking around and didnt even get mad when i went close to the babies. She would not eat any of her normal food but i did manage to get her to eat a little wet cat food. It looks as if she has eaten or drank nothing again today. Both are right next to her nest and she has not used her litter in what will be the 2nd day. She seems to be feeling fine but i am worried that maybe if she is not eating she may not be producing milk for the babies. I know i am probably just crazy and over thinking way to much but im worried about them,. This is very strange for critter she usually has a fantastic appetite and she LOVES water, i usually have to refill her dish mid-day. also, the i have not heard the babies squeaking as much today but i did life the lid to check and all 4 are moving about. Am i being crazy or should i start tp be worried.
Thanks.

Are you giving her fresh kibble daily and counting it? Her appetite should be kicking in by now. Am I right that the babies are 3 days old today (Wednesday)? Try giving her more dampened food.

this morning around 7 i was woken up by cirtter. she was scratching to get out of her room. I let her out and she was running around my bed room and scratching and playing with me and she was away from the nest for a long time. She starting to get her appitite back now and she was back in the nest sleeping with her babies. I tried her with kitten food again today be she hasent tried it yes. Also, she seem sto be sitting on the babies, will she hurt them if she sits / accidently steps on them ? thanks
