my momma cat

(Columbis Ct)

I have a 8 month old kitten who 7 weeks ago had 6 babies and now, is not acting herself. she is pooping out almost water 9 very stinky) and is not being herself. She is eating all the time but not getting any bigger. I don't know what it could be any ideas????

Answer by Kate
Well she was a young mother and so she may not have been strong enough in herself to cope with the birth and the looking after of the kittens, this may have affected her body condition to such an extent that she is finding it hard to recover.

i would definitely advise a trip to the vets for this young mum as she may need further diagnosis and medication.

Nursing queens need the right balance of food nutrition and there are special foods available for this period in their life (see here for details ) but considering that she has severe diarrhoea and the risk of dehydration i would definitely recommend that you get her to the vets as soon as possible.

i do hope she is Ok again soon

best wishes Kate
