    I’d love to hear from those that have been able to raise cats from eggs. I think I’ve been lucky so far as I’ve have 4 newborns who are eating. I have 22 more eggs. I look for an egg to turn dark and keep on eye out until I can see the little one next to the old egg. Each egg is on a leaf which I’ve kept fairly fresh with damp toweling. Once I see a hatchling, I move it into a separate container and give it a tiny piece of leaf. It’s so amazing to see it grow from virtually nothing to the tiniest little thing that actually has stripes if you look close!

    But this has been a hit or miss effort and I’d love to hear others stories. I most welcome your replies
