    Pregnant foster cat stopped eating.. normal or not?

    Just came back from the pet store with both on hand. The babies are all very calm so I think they are being fed, otherwise I think they'd be crying out a lot by now. I'm going to weigh them this afternoon and again tomorrow so hopefully I will see a gain. Mama has been eating well, small...

    Pregnant foster cat stopped eating.. normal or not?

    oh and I forgot to mention, mama actually had major appetite today which was a big relief! She ate a full can of prenatal wet food and some prenatal kibble. Labor started just 30 minutes later. She ate one of the four placentas.

    They're here!!!! Mama gave birth to 4 beautiful babies and they all look exactly like her haha. She has long grey fur and they are all the same shade of grey as her. Everyone seems to be doing well, but I do have a few quick questions.. 1 - What's the best method for marking them since they all...

    Pregnant foster cat stopped eating.. normal or not?

    Yes she has dry food but isn't interested in it at all. When I first got her she was eating it just fine along with her prenatal wet food but now I can only (and barely) entice her with wet the emergency a/d wet food. The de-wormer is fenbendazole/panacure. The one you mentioned also has...

    I'm waiting for the vet to call me back with next steps. We're in a tough spot because the tapeworms are causing her to lose her appetite but the deworming meds also cause nausea and appetite loss... We might have to wait until babies are here to deworm because at least now she's eating a few...

    Pregnant foster cat stopped eating.. normal or not?

    I'm just chatting with my foster coordinator now and she says there is one form of deworming medication that is safe for pregnant mothers but it can cause nausea and appetite loss. So now we are discussing options because she's already on day 5 of barely eating any food! This is due to worms but...

    Pregnant foster cat stopped eating.. normal or not?

    Well.. I've got a gross update. She has tapeworms... I saw a small white one come out of her butt. Very likely means the kittens will have them as well. I contacted the rescue and we will be de-worming. Poor mama.. Has anyone dealt with this? I'm trying to find more info online. I hope it...

    Pregnant foster cat stopped eating.. normal or not?

    Hmmm.. I'm not really sure I've noticed any difference in her belly. It's hard to tell though because she has very long fur, she's super fluffy and I think she's got at least 4 in there. She ate a bit of tuna this morning and is drinking now so I think all is well. I'll be on the lookout for...

    Pregnant foster cat stopped eating.. normal or not?

    Hi everyone, I'm fostering my first pregnant mama and she was taken in as a stray. We don't know how far along she is but the rescue thought she was very close to her due date and I think so as well. She has a bit of dried milk on her nipples, I can feel the kittens move inside and the first 3...
