Hello!

After they are born, kittens should be breastfeeding in order to get nutrients and defenses they need from colostrum and mother's milk.

If one of the kittens or all of them do not nurse after the first few hours after being born, you should start feeding them with freeze-dried milk. There are specific powder milk for kittens you can find in pet shops.

Some cats, especially if they are very young or if it is their first litter, may show low level of maternal behavior and won't take care of their kittens properly; in this case it is fundamental that the owner does it.

On the other hand, the best would be to visit a vet who will perform necessary test to determine the cause of sneezing and, if needed, proceed with the appropriate treatment.

All the best for you and Nieve.
