Why won't my newborn kittens nurse?

Is there something wrong with the mom?


Answer by  Jolie (1227)

The mom may be putting of a signal that she doesnt want them to nurse. She may not be the mothering type or maybe she cant nurse for some reason.

Do not worry unless the kittens are obviously malnurished. You may not actually see them nurse if they happen to do it while you are away. If they are losing wieght, ask your doctor what replacement powder you should use. You will have to bottle feed them until they are old enough to be weaned, about three weeks.
