Hi, my cat gave birth to 5 kittens today. However the third one born looks like he has been having difficulty breathing. When he was first born he was taking long hard breathes and hasn't yet latched on to mum to feed. I called the vets and they were quite useless in giving me any kind of advice. Their response was basically if the kitten hasn't fed within a couple of hours, they usually don't survive. I tried putting a cotton bud in his mouth that had been dabbed in kitten milk, but it's really hard to get his mouth open. I don't want to use too much force... When he breathes, he's makes a noise. Does anyone have any advice they can offer please until I can call a different vets tomorrow.
