Cat not eating

Category: general | Submitted: 9 October 2007 12:52AM | viewed 5141 times
Q Donna asks:

My cat Rasha just gave birth four days ago. However, she has not been eating, and does not even seem interested to eat. If she does she will lick the wet food a couple of times and then turn away. I am very concerned that if she does not eat she and her kittens will die. What do I do or give her to make her eat again?

Q Our vet says: Cats tend to eat enough during their pregnancy to allow for lactation later- so as far as milk production goes she will probably be OK for now. However it is possible that she is unwell, perhaps having an infection after the birth, a retained placenta or something similar. I would recommend taking her to the vet to be checked for any problems/ infections, since if left, things could potentially become more serious. If necessary you should be able to hand-rear the kittens and your vet will be able to tell you if supplementary feeding may be necessary and how to go about it.
