View Full Version : Nursing cat stopped eating

August 24th 06, 11:57 PM
I rescued a stray pregnant cat, seems quite young. It is probably her first litter. I found a foster home for her and the day after she arrived there she had 5 kittens. One was very small and died after a couple of days. The remaining four seem fine and are a good size. The mom is so so skinny. She was eating really well, several times a day up until about a week after the kittens were born. Now she is barely eating at all. Meanwhile she is nursing 4 hungry kits. Her coat is lovely, she seems all right otherwise. She's drinking lots of water. Any ideas, anyone? Thanks. Sonja
