All about Jaws
When kittens are born they are extra small and fragile. This increases their potential of becoming ill or getting an infection. Infections in newborn kittens are quite serious as their bodies are small and they have not built up adequate immunity against many diseases or potential infections that may harm them. This article will focus on three infections that can affect newborn kittens; umbilical infections, toxic milk syndrome and septicemia.
When a female cat (aka a queen) gives birth, she will bite open the amniotic sac that surrounds the kitten. She will then chew through the umbilical cord of the kitten. Normally there are no problems.

Jaws was a stray. I like to say that she adopted me, not the other way around, because I was never a cat person. I call her my "accidental" cat.
She's moved twice with me, once to another country. In that time, she's mellowed from her "wildness" and become a true friend... Even if she is a bit spinny. (White cats, you know. Calm one second, homicidal the next.) It wasn't until I was composing this that I realized how old she is - she's still quite playful, almost kitten-like.
She knows the value of a warm lap and a regular meal time, and pays us back in love and affection. I love her, the little freak.
