    Don't be nervous! With a litter that size you're going to need to check for milk bands to make sure everyone is being fed, if not you'll need to supplement them with some soy or kitten milk. It's best to start handling this early on, makes for some super well socialised and hand tame babies! The babies are going to need mum for warmth, at this stage i don't let my mums away for any longer than a few minutes. When their fur comes in you can start letting her out for longer periods at a time, but as for now no longer than 5 minutes.Thank you! I'll have my hands full, but it's worth it!

So I have 3 litters of babies right now lol! I have my hands full!
