My foster cat is bleeding

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
She had babies 2 days ago. But today I noticed she's bleeding a little in her vagina.

Is this something that can be normal after having babies? i dind't see this yesterday. just started.

Iv'e just done a quick google and it sounds normal. One site said they can bleed for up to 3 days to a week after giving birth, but someone should be on soon to confirm this or give another answer

It also says if it's dark red it's normal, but bright red is a concern.

Heres another link

yuck. it was bright red.

I didn't see it on her vagina, but her fur is black there. I saw it on her tail where it had bumped into the blood i'm sure. I'll play it by ear until someone else gives me some direction but I'm not going to panic. I figured it might just be because her insides were still cleaning out.

No i wouldn't panic either. And your idea of bright red might be dark if you know what i mean?.

When i read your posts i thought "Oh no!!", but then when i googled it and read it was normal i though "Of course it is you silly woman, it happens to women who have just had babies as well!" You can tell i havent had kids though

Some cats do bleed for 3 days after labor.
I would watch her though.

Normal provided she's not gushing blood (doesn't sound like it)

I think it's important to know not to interfere if it's not necessary, just as much as to know when you need to help.

You did great with helping the first kitten to get latched onto a milk supply and warming up the last one.
