Recent Spayed Stray Mom Cat - Swollen Breasts

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
We just took our Mom stray cat to the rescue & had her spayed (she was also pregnant) along with her 1st litter (2 girls & a boy) on Friday... Saturday night, Merlin (from her 1st litter) was aggressively nursing on her... he then proceeded to get sick the next day (old milk?)... & Mom was acting very needy for pets & cuddles & everytime you quit she would bat at your legs, pretend to bite & hiss... she acts like she is in some discomfort & wants us to make it stop?... she is eating well & seemed a lil calmer this am...

Any thoughts would be great as we are new to all of this...

She is probably confused, sore and full of hormones right now. Give her a few days and she will feel better. I would not let the others nurse on her right now, it might hurt. Her swollen breasts will go down eventually, I massaged my girl and that seemed to relieve some of the discomfort.

I would have a concern that it could be Mastitis if the swollen areas are hard to the touch. It is an infection that if caught early can be treated with Antibiotics.

Thanks all for the input... she seems somewhat better & they felt a little softer & smaller today so hopefully she's fine... do you guys by chance know how long it takes for her to dry up? Thanks in advance!

It took my foster cat about 5 days and I felt so bad for her If they are getting softer that is a good sign. Just feel them to make sure they don't feel hot or rock hard.
