Hello Sarah, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you today.
I'm sorry for this concern for Mia but I have a few questions to ask about her first, if you don't mind:

1. Just so that I understand you correctly, Mia had her first kitten 5 days ago?
2. She has had five since then which are all dead?
3. Were they born dead or did they die shortly after they were delivered? Did they look normal?

4. Over what period of time did she deliver them?
5. Is she in active labor if you can tell?

6. Do you actually feel/see a kitten moving?


There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
