Help please! kittens won't eat.
I've been adopted by a stray cat. 3 weeks after I let her into my home she had 2 little kittens. She's been the best mommy all along but she doesn't seem to be producing milk any more. She lays & still lets them nurse but they are losing weight.
I purchased 2 tiny bottles & KMR at the pet store along with canned kitten food & dry kitten food. They want nothing to do with any of those things.
I've tried squirting small amounts of the milk on their tongues, rubbing the wet food on their teeth & leaving food, milk & food with milk in small saucers for them. Nothing is working.
They were 5 weeks old yesterday & I thought they would at least try the food at that age. I've never had such young kittens before & am at a lose as to what else to try.
I could use some suggestions please.
