    2.5 week old kittens - eyes leaking

    ps. Most vets arent very good with small, weak kittens... I suspect in part because they simply pts them... In part, few are insured, and few owners of oops litters are willing to pay good money for treatment... If they didnt bothered to pay for spaying they wont bother to pay for trying to...

That said, if you DO have access to a vet, its usually the wise to consult himher... It it doenst look bad, you can try...

    Newborn kitten that mother abandons

    Is the kitten all white? If yes, so these reddening is probably she is a point..."siamese-mix" and so colouring more and more of the pointed places is natural. Lets hope the kitten didnt got hurt when falling down from the table. Moms abandoning a kitten is often a bad sign; some ARE bad...

    Confused about newborn kittens

    Both parents are solid black, but both do also carry the recessive dilutations gene... So in average, 1 of four kittens will be grey / blue... This kitten looks on one of the pics as a tabby, but its surely ghost striping.... There shouldnt be a true tabby in this batch, unless daddy got...

    Blue Lynx point?

    @KittyJ Could we get pics of your beuty as adult? Or at least, immediately before she got adopted (whichever is the factual). My own reaction, rereading the thread, is if daddy was a blue point alike momma, baby should too become a blue point. The exception is, if daddy was wrongly...

This combo tends to cause they darken up on the body quicker and more than a common seal point.... Why, I dont know, but I have seen this many times. He isnt even a look alike... Snowshoes are...

    Is it normal for cats to bite recent adopted kittens?

    you can give us photos on them, it may be easier to see the age... But if 4 weeks, they are awfully young. Nothing peculiar they hope he is their MA, and he is doing his parenting duties... Perhaps including carrying them in the neck skin.

    Is it normal for cats to bite recent adopted kittens?

    It depends a little, on when he was neutered, and how old they are. And the exact situation. Anyways, its NOT any try to kill nor harm. Its either a dominant behavior, he is showing them whom is the master cat here... Say, he notices they arent small kittens any more and wants to be leaders...

    Full Bengal? Or mix

    Nay, without blue eyes he isnt not a point... There ARE points with green(ish) eyes, rare but there are, but I dont want to strech my speculations too far... So I presume he is a mix, formally spotted tabby but has a bengal Ancestor, that is clear. Yeah, he is gorgious in his way!

    Full Bengal? Or mix

    What is the color of the eyes?? IF its blue, the cat may be a point... Sometimes its not easy to see if the point is a very much tabby, the eye color is often the given away in such cases. HERE I notice some nuance differencies in the fur... Differencies which wore natural for a point, but...
