If the mother cat of kittens is still milking, and the kittens are under eight weeks, then you should let the kittens milk as much as they want. Depending on their age and weight, you should gradually give them more of your own water and semi-wet/dry food until they start coming to you and not 'meowmy' for food. Then they should feed completely on a human-provided diet.

If the kittens mother is still milking and the kittens are ready to move on from mom, then you should try taking the kittens away from their parent for gradual time increases.

For example:

day 1, 10 minutes

day 2, 20 minutes

day 3, 30 minutes

day 4, 1 hrs

day 5, 2 hrs

day 6, 4 hrs

day 7, 6 hrs

day 8, 9 hrs

day 9, 12 hrs

day 10, 18 hrs

day 11, 24 hrs

Hope this helps & good luck!

How long can you leave a milking cow without milking it and then restart the milking She is with the bull at the moment but we would still like to milk her when she comes home?

This will depend on how much milk she is still producing once she comes home. If her udder is still looking full you may be able to start milking her again. Keep in mind that she might have mastitis, treat it as you normally, and begin milking her. It is probably a good idea to see if she does have mastitis either way, if she does treat it and dry her off if she is not able to milk. A month should not be too harmful to her, if she was producing milk before hand, however, anywhere longer than that you might not be able to begin the milking process.

Can a mother cat understand what its baby is saying?

Cat vocalizations are not like human speech, they don't actually have words that they use to express themselves. However, cat vocalizations are still very expressive.

The cat has a wide-range of tonal variations that it can use to express itself, and other cats will respond to those variations.
