So, either she thinks they are goners, and so she wants to send them on....

OR she perhaps has still some kittens inside her.... As so, with a little luck, she will deliver the last kittens several days later... This happens.

Anyway, if you want to try to save them, if they are able to live, you must handfeed them, and handraise them. Its lotsa of work, but it can be done.

Make sure they are warm and comfortable.

Begin with this sugar solution I told about earlier....
You are in India, right?

If you can get home goats milk, you can always use it. Raw milk from healthy goats is excellent, but almost any goats milk about 3% fat shall work...

Raw milk from the typical India cows should do, or raw milk from buffalos..... ( we had members from India earlier; in a situation where they did not had access to proper kmr).
Yes i m from india. I dont think they are fully formed yet.

Mother cat is getting very scared and meowing loudly. Please tell me what should I do
Is she scared of them?? I suppose she simply doesnt recognize them as her kittens... They are premature, so her hormones arent prepared... She isnt in Momma mode...

So, take them away from her, and try handraise them as well you can..... (most vets arent good at helping newborn kittens, and usually they DONT do it, unless they know a fosterer, or let their assistent do it as part of their training)

Try to be nice to momma, she needs support she too.... Perhaps she has still some kitten inside?? IF so, it will probably come several days later, hopefully healthy - and she ready for it... Hopefully.

I think she still has kittens inside her. When those kittens are crying she got scared ran away from the room.
Why do these kittens born early?

You can try tiny drops. They need to be warm as well. Put them on a blanket with a heating pad underneath set on low. Or under a lamp. Do not waste any time.

how to take care of premature kittens? Should i give them kmr milk?
Yes. You can begin with this sugar water.. Be sure they are warm and comfortable - ie are warmed up....

In the day, if you can get kmr is good, but raw goats milk perhaps even better...

Use a dropper or a needleless syringe.... Just a few drops at a time, carefully, in the corner of the mouth.

Hold kitten belly down, head up when handfeeding.

Keeping them warm or covered is absolutely crucial! Stefan or SArthur2 is it possible they could get too warm? I don’t know where this is in India, but guessing 75-80 degrees in the daytime.

Its fully possible to become too warm, so you are right, its a real danger.

Yet, becoming too cold is the most common... And I suppose the TS knows herself if its hot in her flat with european measures...

Please update us on your cat’s situation. We are very concerned. I hope the vet was helpful and that your mother cat is doing better. I assume the premature kittens have passed away by now?

Apologies for delayed update.
She got an infection in her uterus it seems. Vet performed spay surgery for her a day after. She got spayed on Sunday. She had two more kittens. They too have passed away on the same day. I was a little upset about it and didn't update you guys. I m really sorry for that. My kitty got very scared after the surgery and didn't eat properly for one whole day. She became normal since yesterday. Now she is doing good.
Thank you so much for your support.

We may not have helped enough, but we do care about what has happened. Can you please let us know?
I m very sorry for not updating you guys. I was upset about the new born kittens and the mama cat also got scared a lot. She got spayed a day after. It took a little time for things to get back to normal.
You people are always very helpful to me. Whenever my kitties are in some problem I come here for your support. You people give me so much strength. It really means a lot to me. I m always grateful to you guys.
