desperate cat owner

by marjie

my cat just had a litter a week ago and was fine after delivering 5 kittens that all appeared healthy and now the mother smells like a dead body and her mouth is full of some type of bloody discharge. she will not eat but is still feeding her kittens. i'm worried about the mother dying and possibly passing this on to her kittens . i've since seperated the mother and the kittens and i am now bottle feeding the kittens . 2 have died and the remaining 3 dont look to good. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Marjie
I', sorry but it is impossible for me to be able to help your cat over the INTERNET, she needs to see a vet URGENTLY. There is no way of knowing what her illness is and whether or not it will affect the kittens.

Kittens needs= their mother milk for the first few weeks and so it is very important that she is checked and looked after so that she can provide this care. It sounds like the kittens are already suffering so the sooner you can get them all seen by a vet the better the outcome.

i do hope the vet is able to help your female cat and her kittens.
