New Mama!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

I am new here, and also the new "mama" to, count them, 7 cats! I picked up a stray who happened to be pregnant. Dahlia is so small, that she only weighed 7.5lbs while almost full-term. 6 kittens later, she is much deflated. I also had a cat who preexisted her, named Kittie.

Dahlia, despite her size, is the "boss" around my place, and scares Kittie under the bed, but if I crouch down and pet them both at the same time, they seem to do okay.

But I have bigger problems...Dahlia has worms, and the kittens have fleas! What's a mama to do? The kittens are less than 2 wks. old and still breastfeeding. Any advice??

hey! welcome to TCS!!! ummm... she may be able to be de wormed at your local vets office. a drontal shouldn't btoher the cat or the nursing kittens... however, the kittens not reallty be given meds. 0they can be bathed though... however, they are not too effective and now you have to bomb/spray the house...
