Is this normal??????????
Mum + her baby
My cat gave birth to 1 kitten yesterday morning. Everything went really well (apart from ppl trying 2 scare me by saying there might be 1 stuck in her!)
Thing is I noticed this morning that she has a little bloody discharge around her vagina. She's happy in herself feeding her baby and coming over to be affectionate and stuff but I worry if this discharge is normal - I'd hate for anything to happen to my cat or her baby. Is this discharge normal? It's not a lot I'm just worried as this is a first for me lol.
Many many thanks

Hi well this is a difficult one to answer really as it is not unusual for a cat to have only one kitten. and the discharge is normal too, just like after a human birth their is fluid and discharge still inside which takes a few days to be released that is why human mothers where special pads after birth.
The easiest thing for you to do is to watch your cats behaviour, if she is eating ok, using the litter ok ans is basically acting in a normal fashion than I would not worry. i think if there was anything wrong then she would show signs of distress and her behaviour would change, in which case the only answer is to take her to the vets.
But from what I understand everything sound normal and great to me. :)
best wishes Kate
