Awww poor wee Bun :cry:
Can you feel any poo in her small intestines or does her stomach feel distended?

Sounds as though she is receiving the best possible care. These little ones are so fragile aren't they :cry: I so hope that she will make it.

I just found Crystal taking a wee drink from the bowl all by herself, this is the first time I have seen her drink on her own :) she has still lost weight though!! but it is a start :D

Crystal is very ill this morning, i have been up all night with her but she is just so weak, i think she might have pneumonia! she is just too small to go on any longer :( I had hope for her yesterday but it was not to be. If she is still with me when the vet opens at 9 i will take her to help her on her way but I am hoping she will just go to sleep cuddled up to her litter mates. :( :( :( :( :(

That's good news :D You are doing a great job. Its so emotionally draining when little ones are so vulnerable and some dont make it :cry:
