Cats/Cat not looking good.


My cat had her first litter about 6 days ago. This morning she looked very ill. At first she did not want to eat but after a bit of encouragement I got her to eat a bit. Could there be something wrong? She had a very bad poo which was loose and mustard in colour. Please help, she is my baby.

Hi Ruby,

You need to take her to the vet immediately. There could be a number of things that are wrong with her. And if you feel that she is sick then you need to respect your gut feeling. Get her to the vet. Have her checked out. You and her will feel better about this. Good luck and take care.

Ciao, Karen
