Cats/why did the last kitten died


my cat had kittens this morning how come the last one died when she gave brith to it?

sorry to hear that you lost one of your kittens.

there is no way to say for sure why one would die but often in a litter of kittens especially if there are lots of kittens that you have one that is weaker than the others . they are known as runts and often do not survive.

I wouldn't worry too much its just the way nature is sometimes.  Just keep an eye on your other kittens to make sure they are healthy.

i have some web pages about how to take care of kittens which you may find useful. here is the first page


best wishes Kate
