White things in kitten's mouth?
by Qlor Yrsi
There is this cat in my neighborhood. I feed her and she usually sleeps in my front yard. I never thought of adopting her, though, because I am not very good with pets since I am out of my house most of the time.
Yesterday, she gave birth to five kittens in my front yard, but today I was shocked to find only two left!
I don't know what happened to rest of them. :( The remaining two kittens have these white things in their mouths. What are they?
And I think the kittens are premature? I don't know much about cats, but these are way too small. I don't know if it's normal or not.
Is it normal for the mother cat to leave her kittens alone? She's not with them most of the time. She trusts me, though, and knows I am no danger to them, so I am not sure if she abandoned her kittens or if she just goes out looking for food or doing other stray cats' business.
