Kittens in a cardboard box
So apparently Snow wanted them to be in the cardboard box. *shrug* no idea why this is preferred but it is, and who am I to tell her how to raise her kittens?
But I couldn't stand them all having so little room so I went and got a bigger box and swapped them out.
As you can see she is "chickening" again. She slowed down quite a bit on the consumption of food, and had a bit of diarrhea on Tuesday. I gave her some raw food which she ate and seemed to enjoy, so hopefully that will help things settle. I am also going to start mixing some probiotics in with her food and hopefully that won't turn her off the rest of her food. Right before I swapped out the boxes she did lay down and wanted me to rub her belly so she's not all that uncomfortable. I am so hoping this is a temporary thing and things are back on track soon. The kits were a little underfed so I gave them all some KMR last night, some took a lot, some took very little - which is good.
Hopefully this box will be acceptable for Snow and we'll be able to set the camera up to watch them tomorrow.
