Cats/nursing cat


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

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

I can advise on cat training including litter training and general day to day cat care issues. I am not a vet and therefore cannot answer medical questions.
