Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, were you able to see my question above?
Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I will certainly try.
Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.
If Princee cannot be convinced to eat, seems lethargic or is not feeding her kittens well she needs to see a vet urgently.
We'd be concerned about e.g. an internal infection, parasites or eclampsia.
The vet will examine her and may run some tests such as a blood test or imaging.
Her treatment will depend on what is found and may include e.g. antibiotics, anti inflammatories, fluids and a prescription diet.
At home, we are limited and should tempt her to eat bland food such as warm chicken and rice.
This is a red flag.
If she cannot settle comfortably and is lethargic, she sounds to be very unwell.
I would want her seen by a vet tonight, especially given the fact she has given birth so recently.
Unfortunately due to the pandemic, most vets cannot make house visits.
However, do call your local vet as they may be able to make an exception.
Having said this, you will find most vets require you to bring the cat in. This makes it a lot easier to run tests as needed.
It is normal for owners to bring in the mother and kittens altogether if any of them are unwell.
You would bring them all in the same carrier.
While an abrupt diet change may cause a mild sromach upset e.g. loose stool or gas, it sounds to me like there is more going on here.
Bless her, hopefully she is on the mend very soon.
Do ensure she is taking in enough liquid as she is still nursing.
You may also consider some probiotic anti diarrhoea paste such as Protexin Prokolin.
If she has not been wormed in the last month or two, Panacur is safe to use in nursing cats and could be given.
Do continue to offer warm and tempting options, in the hope she will be convinced to try something.
If chicken won't work, white fish or egg may be accepted.
Anything else, please do let me know.
I'm sorry to hear this.
You need to contact your local vet to ask if this is something that they can do.
