My cat is 1 yr old and recently had 2 kittens, her first

Customer Question

My cat is 1 yr old and recently had 2 kittens, her first litter (and her last!) She's normally full of energy and has a very healthy appetite. Since yesterday morning, she hasn't wanted to eat, doesn't have any energy, stays in the same spot unless forced to move, and seems weak.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Thumper
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Thumper?
Customer: no

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

1) When was Thumper's first litter?
2) How old are the 2 kittens she recently delivered?
3) When did she last eat normally?
4) Any vomiting or diarrhea?
5) How are the kittens doing thus far? Is she still caring for them?
