Cat shivering

by Jessica V
(Winchester, IN)

My cat, Sophie, is about five months old. We recently have had an issue with fleas. I have given her a few bathes with Dawn dish soap. Afterward she would shiver for a while. I assume that is normal because she was cold from being wet after getting out of the warm bath. My concern, however, lies in the fact that yesterday I noticed her shivering while she was laying in my lap. She had not had a bath and was completely dry. Once she fell asleep in my lap, the shivering stopped, but as soon as she woke up it resumed. I haven't been keeping the house unusually cool or anything, and the weather recently has been pretty warm. What could be the reason for this shivering?

Well if she had a problem with fleas she may be anaemic. this is common with small kittebns and fleas.

Taking her to the vets is the sure way to find out and will also rule out anything else such as an infection. if she is is anaemic he will probably either give her an injection or recommend some tablets.

there's nothing sadder than a tiny shivering kitty is there. i hope they are well again soon.

best wishes Kate
