The kitten situation is sorting itself out. We had all been taking turns feeding Anbah's babies with milk from a syringe and hoping she would return. She hasn't come back yet and we've pretty much given up hope of her showing up.
In the middle of the night on Tuesday, Layla started having her kittens. By the time the kids left for school in the morning she had given birth to three. She had another one later on in the morning. I left her in her box with her brood and she was happily sorting them out, cleaning them up and feeding them.
When the kids came back from school we gave Anbah's kittens another feed and then introduced one of the kittens into the box with Layla - praying she would accept it. She immediately started licking it and it latched on to her and started nursing. Then we added the other two kittens.
Layla's got seven kittens now to look after. We're going to have to watch them carefully and give some supplemental feeds to help her out. Phew... I am so glad we are not feeding those kittens 24/7 anymore. We can finally get some rest.
