Mama Cat gave birth 3 days ago... Have a concern
happyisme posted:
Our cat gave birth to 2 kittens 3 days ago ... Mama and babies have been doing great! Kittens are nursing fine and mama has been loving her babies .... But today I was changing their bedding and noticed some blood on the towel.. I checked all over mama and the babies but saw nothing.. It was only small amount ... My first thought was maybe one of kittens urinated blood? But not sure .. Mamas nips have blood under the skin from all the sucks but no blood on her skin ...Any thoughts? How concerned should I be? I haven't seen anymore since but if it does happen again I will the vet
