Customer Question

Hi my cat just had her second litter of cats today, she now has diarrhea, isnt responding to her name, meowing a lot while staring blankly and was dragging her back legs when we woke up tonight. She ate a lot after giving birth to her 6 kittens and even some Mac and cheese she grabbed off my son's plate at the dinner table and been drinking lots of water. My mother swore that there was one more inside to make 7 but she never had another?
Really worried but don't want to call emergency vet line unless it's actually an emergency or if this is normal-ish for cats?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long ago did she deliver the kittens?

Has she had any straining since?

Can she move her back legs voluntarily at all? Or does she just seem weak?

Is the diarrhea profuse, bloody, or black in color?

Any tremors or seizures?
