Question
my cat is nursing and one of her nipples is red and hardening and doesn't give milk is there something i can do or is this normal

Answer
Hi
Sounds like a possible blocked teat or even an infection. In either case this needs to be treated by a vet to ensure that your cat is not in pain and also to prevent further illness.

I hope she is better soon

best wishes Kate
