At least she's got good support: all the food she needs brought to her, a safe space she doesn't have to use energy defending, and bottle assistance with the milk supply.

One of Verse's newborns has died.
The KA Discord chat believes it was #9, the last born & the ginger marked with black on his head.
According to Mr A, he hadn't any weight gain in the past 24 hours.
The KA Discord chat says something happened with him just before midnight, I didn't look at the video.
DJ found him when she arrived home for her 24 hour visit.
I feel so sad for Mr A, he has been on his own through the birth & supplement feedings.
Sad night.

I'm sorry to hear that; but not entirely astonished. That's a very large litter, and sometimes one (or more) just doesn't develop properly.

She also was a long time getting him out, wasn't she? so there might have been damage at that point.

All the kits did start off nursing, though, so I had hoped they'd all be all right.

I feared something like this happening with so many kittens. We had active momma cats during my childhood that occasionally lost kittens when the litter was 6 or more, and it always seemed to be the last one born.

My thoughts for Mr. A and DJ, and here's hoping the rest of Verse's litter will grow up healthy and happy.
