the kittens when i few days old

the kittens when i few days old

please help

my cat had a litter of kittens who are all healthy.
on saturday i sold one to my freind and this morning she told me the kitten had died.
she was eating fine and drinking fine and she was playing all day as i was there and saw she was ok.
she had flees and my freind treated her with front line.
why all of a sudden would this happen?
can i cat be given too much front line and that killed her?
or could it be that she had too many flees and that killed her?
there were no signes that anything was wrong with her so i dont know what happened.
please give me some advice??????
thank you from alison

Hi, you did not tell me how old the kitten was. If it was younger than two months old then it's ammune system would still be very weak and it could have picked up anything that could have killed it. Also fles can kill small kittens if the infestation is very bad as it causes very bad aneamia, so it could have been this. I don't use frontline so i cannot commnet on this but the packet should have said if it was safe for kittens, so she should check that.

Kittens need to stay with their mother for the first two months to build up thier immune systems and to be taught importnat lessons from its mother. It is very important fro the developmenet of a happy healthy cat in the future.
