Well, we found out that the momma cat didn't clean them up as well as she should have when they were born and their umbilical cords got twisted and fused to the placenta that she expelled and all of them were fused into a mass of kitten when it all dried. The techs were able to get them apart with warm saline. The Vet trimmed off the cords and one might have a belly button problem that might have to have minor surgery to correct. No problem. One of the black and white kittens had to have a bit of his leg amputated because when they were connected, his leg got cramped and it broke at the joint, and the circulation was cut off. Good thing I caught it when I saw it.
|Sorry about the picture quality but he was squirming.|
The amputation is at the bottom center of the picture.
