Pregnant cat: REALLY skinny! Any help?
We picked up this cat off an old highway who was licking up what looked like throw up. She was sooo thin you could feel every bone and honestly she was just skin and bones.
She gained weight really fast. Then she went into season escaped our house. Was gone for a month or so we didnt expect to see her again then she came back prego as she can be.
She has lost a bit of weight out on the street, but now she's just loosing it again! She isnt gaining any weight even tho she has free choise to eat, good cat food to. She is REALLY freakin huge, like this must be a LARGE freakin litter I've never seen a cat this big (since I've been picking them up off the streets) we think that the babies are taking everything she is bringing into her body and arnt letting her gain the weight she needs. We know she's late in her pregnancy because her nipples are out,large,and have white crusty stuff on them.
But she doesnt have any milk, and she hasnt developed any within the last week like she should. I thought about the carnation good start to help her gain weight, if she would drink it. The worst thing would be is us having to bottle feed kittens again.
Any ideas on having her gain weight?
