If the kitten got enough sustenance from mama and you previous to this, it may be strong enough. There's just no way to know.

There is a good chance that if the kitten is dying the mother knows it. She has done the best she could for her kittens, both of them. Her heart is broken. I'm sorry you must leave her to bear this alone. The world is a cruel place for small creatures, actually, the world is a rather horrible place for everyone. Few do anything to make it better.

My parents will give her food and water and let her live in the house.
But i can't say anything about the kitten, there's no way a single kitten can survive anyway.
I am gonna sleep now, and go live with my aunt for somedays so i don't have to think about them anymore.
Thanks for caring about them

But the kitten wasn't dying, the picture of those pimple like thing I had posted earlier were lighter today, didn't looked as harmful as yesterday now.
I just made her go back to her kitten, and she might be nursing her now, i can't just do this all over again.

It's ok if you step back. The kitten will make it, or it will be a baby that wasn't destined to stay with you. You have done, and are doing, your part 🤞🙏 if you decide to leave before heading out for university, that's ok, since your parents are right, you need to take care of yourself
All I can do is just pray now, that the kitten somehow survives and sleep which I haven't really done in the past 5 days.

She is doing as good a job as she is capable of, hang in there with her 💕
I cannot anymore, i invested too much emotionally .
Thanks for your time, maybe her second pregnancy will be better than the first one.
My parents won't get her spayed, cause they like kittens.
So Goodbye everyone, Thanks for your time.

Your cat should not have to endure pregnancy after pregnancy. It is not healthy for her. We are also a pro spay and neuter site. Please ask your parents to get her spayed.

In the meantime, can you settle mom and kitten in your bedroom where both will be safe and warm? It seems it may be better than mom cat constantly moving the kitten.

Part of responsible cat care includes vet care and spaying. I wish you all the best. We are here if you need us.

Also, those “pimples” on the kitten are not ringworm. satax satax

I adopted a street cat in Feb 2022,
I was gonna move out for college in 10 days anyway, till then i think I should go live at an aunts house or something, cause I don't wanna see the kittens dead body.

Hi satax satax

I understand that you might feel overwhelmed, but this is your cat. You adopted her, so you are responsible for her well being. If you are old enough to move out and go to college you're old enough to take your cat to the vet by yourself.

If you let us know which city/state you live in we can give you the details for cheap spay and neuter cases in your area. Please do the right thing and get your cat spayed so she doesn't have to go through this again. If your parents really like kittens they won't want to see them suffer either.

The kitten is fine right now, and i can't get the cat spayed until she is weaned of, which means 3-4 weaks.
And even if i am moving out my parents are paying for it. And if i want to get the cat spayed i'll have to convince my parents no matter how affordable the spaying is.

I can tell that you love cats very much, satax satax ! You must be very tired so get some rest. With only 1 baby, mama kitty's milk will be plentiful so the chances of survival are better. If you live in a warm climate, being a kitten alone in the nest isn't as dangerous. If the Tom cat is the father, he probably won't harm the baby. Before you move away, explain to the mama kitty that you are leaving to better your opportunities and that your parents will provide for her - cats understand that.
I know that you will be busy with studies but please continue to visit TCS whenever you can. I invite you to comment on other threads and in different forums. We have good social forums for you to participate in, whenever you feel like you want to connect with an awesome international community. Hope to get updates from you soon :hellocomputer:

Thankss! I'll do that for sure.
Update: i still check on the kitten and muma cat. She was gone for 3 hours, so i went upstairs to check and that Tom cat had again blocked her only entrance to come back, i don't know why she leaves if she is so scared of him.
However as the weather is warm here, the kitten was warm on her own for 3 hours.
Also muma cat isn't eating, when i brought her back i gave her food and water, but she only drank the water, smelt the food and left it, maybe she ate something when she was outside. But she didn't eat much in the evening too.

But he is in heat, he might do that to get the muma cat into heat too.

Muma cat has dried blood around her anus, is this a bad case of diarrhea or something serious? I recently changed her food to drools dry kitten food, can it be related to that?
Also she is now sleep near me not the baby, which is like 2 rooms away.

Update: She did left after the previous post, but u don't know where she went, I woke at 7 and just felt that I should go and check on them, she wasn't with him, so i made her go back to him, and the kitten cried so loudly after seeing her, she must have left him for a long duration.
My parents have to move the bags, thus her nest will be exposed.
So, we had to move them into a cage, covered the sides and kept blankets inside, cause there isn't any other warm, secluded space in the house.

The dried blood might be from the food change but is more likely related to the clear discharge that had happened earlier. A veterinary visit would be best, if that is possible in your area. Also, is there any possibility that you could trap the Tom cat and get him neutered? It might take a couple of weeks before his hormones calm down but he would likely become a friend and ally to your little cat family.
BTW, how is the baby cat doing? How many days' old is she now? How many days until you leave for school? You are already getting an excellent education in animal rescue and your "instincts" for helping cats are top-notch :yess: :rock::clapcat:
