    2x 16 week kittens
    My youngest of 2 cats (sachi) was killed by a car on Friday, and my mum thought that she would cheer me up with 2 new 16 week kittens, one male one female, reluctantly I took them, they were obviously very nervous and quiet.
    They were infested with fleas which I have treated them both, and washed them as they weren't kept in clean condition.since I've had them , about a day and a half now, they have had diarrhoea pretty bad, they were pooping all over quite frequently, although their appetites remain good. I've not given them any wet food since they've been here just biscuits (dry food) and water and the frequency has reduced dramatically, but its still quite loose, I thought also about roundworm but the previous owner assures me that they've been wormed.
    What should I do now? They're active and have settled well, they're still a bit nervous if I move towards them too quickly, but apart from that they seem quite well.
    Also, I still have the mother(jinx) of the cat I lost on Friday and she won't come anywhere near the kittens, she just stares at them, and gives a little hiss now and then, will she settle down once she is used to them? She did used to hiss at her daughter at first but it stopped after a month or so.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
