What is the biggest litter of Devons you have had?

Lily had 9 kittens this morning. I have tube fed them and crossing all my fingers and toes that they will survive. Seeing as Lily is an A blood group, I do have another Queen that is also an A, so I may give her one of Lily's babies. Weights ranged from 72gms - 94 gms. I got up every hour until 3.30am and then went to bed. When I woke at 6.00am there were 6 babies and then she had the other 3 without any assistance.

  • Best of luck with the bubs. Is dad a B
  • Oh my!!! 9 is huge but they all seem good weight for such a large bundle of babies. Were you expecting that many?

    The biggest litter I have had is 6, my girls seem to specialise in 5 :)

  • Lily was big but I was only expecting 6 at the most.

  • Thanks Peta. All is well so far, I am rotating kittens every 30 mins or so. I will tube feed again soon

  • Oh wow- 9!

    Lavinnia had 9 in her last litter but unfortunately we lost 6 of them. It was not good from the beginning though.

    Good luck with them Penny, it sounds like they are good weights. What a naughty girl having 9!
    Has she had big litters before?
  • Lily has had 5 in one litter and six in another. I seriously wasn't expecting more than 6. They seem quite content. So I will weigh them before I go to bed and top up the kittens that haven't put on any weight.

    What were the weights of Lavinnia's kittens?
