It’s a dumb question but do cats dilate?

She may stimulate them at times you don’t see her doing it. However, if you think they need stimulating or cleaning, you can gently do it yourself with a warm damp soft cloth.

Do make sure the black kitten gets enough time nursing!

I will be posting update and the little black one is the same size as them but weights very little compared to them he is getting bottlefed every one hour and 15 minutes he has a heating pad on one side on the lowest setting the the other just blankets so he can get out of the heat

Short-haired kittens can open their eyes very young — like 4-5 days. Kittens still do not see well initially so keep lighting low. She’s likely fine. If you see any discharge wipe it clean gently with a warm damp cloth.

Green or yellow discharge may mean infection and requires Terramycin to clear. You can order a tube from a Tractor Supply store or Chewy online without a prescription (except in California). It’s not unusual for kittens to have eye discharge.

OMG! She will likely come home pregnant, so you’ll need to spay her right away when she returns.

Are you feeding the kittens yourself now? Hopefully every 2 hours around the clock. And are they gaining daily?
