Hi, my cat (well actually a stray we have been feeding) had a litter of 3 kittens. We have been taking care of them and they are now about 5 weeks. Today, one of my kittens got into adult cat food. Her stomach seemed bigger, I don't know if this was just because of her eating so much adult food. I also noticed her legs were a bit shaky. I was wondering why this was so. Please help!

Hi well it is very difficult to say if there is anything actually wrong with the kitten or if she just had too much food at once which has made her feel uncomfortable and unsteady.
if I were you I would just keep an eye on her for a day or so to see if she recovers and if she is also able to go to the loo etc as it may be constipation which has caused her tummy to be big (it would make you unstable on your legs too I would imagine).
if you believe she is ill or constipated then because she is so young a trip to the vets would be urgently needed.
I do have some web pages here on the site about general kitten care and also one about cat constipation which you may find of further help. here they are
best wishes Kate
