The little piggies are gaining so well! Yay for Saffron and Jack! :cheerleader:

I agree with the vet, and I am so glad that he gave her a shot and more tablets for home. The Noraclav tablets are excellent.

Is Willow having an easier time nursing now?
She’s nursing today, still short feeds but fairly often. Like she pops in every hour, two max for little feeds. Their gains have been really good the last two days. They try to groom themselves a lot now and they creep up on mum and pounce her and she does it to them. 😅

They're big enough for a bath with Dawn dishwashing soap. That will get rid of the fleas. Pick the fleas out of the bathwater and drop them into another little bowl of hot water and Dawn, then flush them down the toilet when bathing is done. Combing the kittens with a flea comb will help you find stragglers.

Thanks. Is it safe to treat mum while she’s nursing?

Mum has been treated. Found another flea on saffron, during a wash but none on jack. Wondering if mum picked it up at the vets. She didn’t appear to have them before and it doesn’t seem to be an infestation. Mum has been treated. Also she is back to feeding them really well since her antibiotics.

Meant to add, still haven’t tried with a litter tray, however jack has taken to leaping into mums tray and taking a poo. 🤷‍♀️

Photo update. You can see who the little (pole climbing) troublemaker is. 😍 😊
