7. Madoc's litter was 4 weeks old and full of hiss and spit

I noticed when I talked really softly to them, and scritched them with my finger OR a tooth brush, they calmed right down. Picking them up by the scruff also seems to relax them.

If you can get some kitten milk replacement and give that to them with a syringe, it will keep them hydrated. I always warmed up the pate and mixed in some water or, better, yet, some of the replacement milk.

At that age they should be able to relieve themselves in a litter box. If, once they are eating, they aren't 'producing', try stimulating their little hind ends with a warm, wet soft cloth.

I'm home for most of the weekend so if you need any other suggestions, don't hesitate to contact me directly via DU email
