As I posted back on June 9th, my mother has been feeding stray and feral cats. A neighbor moved several weeks ago and he had been feeding them. My mother felt sorry for them....you know the rest of the story. One of the cats had kittens. They have been feed kitten food and have had fresh water daily. About a week ago the kittens just started dying....one by one. We have had stray and feral cats show up before and have kittens but nothing like this has ever happened before. From time to time, one would die, but not an entire litter and just in the matter of a few days!! Just a week ago they were fine!! Can chicken feces be making them sick? That is the only change I can think of. One of my mother's neighbors got some chickens and his backyard smells like %$#@!! To top it off, this is in the city!! I just wonder if this is causing the kittens to become sick and die. One kiiten did have a discharge coming from its rear when my mother found it dead. I don't know if that can help anyone with this situation or not. Does anyone know why the kittens are dying? Thank you for your help.
