Do cats usually cut it and eat the placenta later or do they always eat it immediately ?
I have a hermaphrodite cat that was born looking like #2 and misclassified as a girl by two vets, probably because the anus looked more like a slit than a perfect circle. The spacing between the openings is large enough to be a boy. Otherwise, I agree with this list. If a color point cat, you can confirm if a boy if their pointed fur color develops between the holes because the testicles are colder extremitiesBoy. Girl. Boy. Girl.
Here is a kitten weight chart for the first 12 weeks I've used in the past, specific size depends on breed and genetic, and as mentioned they generally gain about a pound per month.Hi, I’m a little worried. In the first week the kittens seems to be growing fine but now they are in 2nd week and the weight seemed to have slowed. What should be the healthy weight by the end of this week ?
Before feeding first day weights and at the end of 1st week
Green-94g, by the end of week 1- (188g)
week 2 (day 11)
Is this growth normal or is it lacking somewhere ?
Hi the 7 days after birth till 6 day is considered first week or is the 7th day after the 6th day will be considered as 1 week?
7 days old is one week old or on that chart would be the "1 week" so at one week old they should be between 142 and 283g, which they were so that is good, and by 2 weeks or 14 days they should be 227-397g, and they look to be on track to be within those weights. . They should be gaining at least 50-100g a week (or roughly 7-14g a day).Hi the 7 days after birth till 6 day is considered first week or is the 7th day after the 6th day will be considered as 1 week?
PS: the kittens are Persian
Update: after that first poop, I cleaned it with tissue and put it in the litter box and literally very same day, all the kitties started using the litter box. Very self trained kitties. I feel like a proud parent
