Awww... I used to help my mum hand rear kittens for the Cats Protection. I remember those 2/3 hourly feeds well! And then you have to 'stimulate' the other end too - yeuch! Mind you, is mum cat about to do the cleaning up - then they're nice and soft and not a kitten encrusted in milk & poo! Hope mum cat gets better soon.
