Caring for a cat after giving birth

Cat after childbirth: watch carefully
The postpartum period of any cat begins immediately after all the kittens were born. The cat after childbirth is usually relaxed and sleeps a lot, and your task is to ensure her peace as much as possible. First of all, feel the cat’s tummy and make sure that all kittens are born. If you can not do it yourself, better consult a doctor. Also, beware of the animal. If the behavior of the cat after giving birth is alarming, immediately invite a veterinarian!
Especially you should be alerted by the following signs: increased salivation, anxiety, loss of coordination of the animal, a sharp rise in temperature, convulsions. This may indicate eclampsia – a disease that can appear immediately after birth and lead to a sharp decrease or even the lack of assimilation of calcium by the cat. This disease, unfortunately, can be fatal, which is why special care is important for animals.
Caring for a cat after giving birth
Since the behavior of the cat after childbirth is usually calm, and the animal often sleeps or spends time in the “nest” with the kittens, you should foresee that everything necessary for the cat is next to it. The toilet, as well as water and food, must always be close to the animal.
Immediately after birth, wash and clean the box in which the cat will live with the kittens, and cover the floor of the box with a sheet or flannel. The most important thing – the fabric should be flat and smooth, so that kittens that will crawl on this cover do not cling to it with their claws.
Also, a cat after childbirth is usually nervous if strangers are approaching its cubs, so for the first time do not let anyone go to its box. Moreover, if an animal persists and does not want to leave its shelter at all (and this sometimes happens), it must be forced to do so in order to clean the box.
How to feed a cat after childbirth?
Feeding a cat after giving birth is a particularly important part of caring for an animal. In this difficult period, the cat needs nutritious, but at the same time light food. At the same time, the number of meals should be increased to 4-5, and portions should be reduced so that the cat does not overeat.
You also need to be very clear about what to feed the cat after giving birth. First, the animal should receive its usual food at this time. Secondly, you need to add a sufficient amount of milk, and in addition, try to give the cat fish oil (just a few drops), as well as phosphates and calcium, which are given in the form of bone meal. Moreover, immediately after giving birth the cat should drink a lot, although it is not recommended to give any liquid at all during the first day after the kittens are taken from it.
And one more nuance – feeding the cat after childbirth must necessarily be prevention of the already mentioned eclampsia, and a varied diet is the key to success in this case. And if you suddenly notice even the slightest signs of this disease, you can give your cat some sweet water or a solution of glucose to drink, and then immediately invite a doctor.
Is it possible to sterilize a cat after giving birth?
It is possible to sterilize a cat after giving birth, but you should wait until two months from the moment of birth of the kittens for the cat to recover from the birth, otherwise sterilization may harm the health of the cat.
