My cat just had a litter of 3 kittens(would have been 4 but one died) . & now im noticing what looks like scabs on her back legs, the fur has fell off around the scab & she doesn't let me touch it ... What could this be ?

Hi this sort of thing can be caused by several things:


please see my page about this here

Your best option is to take her to see a vet so that the correct diagnosis and treatment can be found. It must be uncomfortable for her and this must be especially stressful for her with the new kittens.

It is important to make sure that all of the cats do not have a flea or parasite problem as it can make the kittens very ill indeed.

best wishes KAte
