My momma cat came home this morning with a huge wound on her tummy, thought she had been attacked and it scared me to death. Have already lost 3 cats this year and my kids and I are not up to any more losses. The vet said to start feeding the kittens 2% milk and kitten chow (which I can't get here) so I had to buy Science Diet instead. I have to blend it so it's a liquid rather then chunks. He also told me to feed the same to momma since she is rather thin (she disappeared for 3 weeks, I think she was trying to find one of the cats that disappeared). I've been nursing her back to health and thought she was doing pretty good till now. I adopted her when friends who had been feeding her (she was a wild kitty) had to move out of state. Anyway, the vet also told me to make sure I give her some alone time away from the kittens and I wondered if anyone out there has nursed a sick wild kitty with kittens back to health? Any pointers they want to give out? She is a really nice cat, just a little afraid of humans I think. I hope she learns to trust us again, it always takes so much time to get her trust back after taking her to the vet.
