just so you know, fleas can kill a cat. :cry: especially the Young, the old, sick or skinny. can even kill an otherwise perfectly healthy cat as well. they suck the life blood right out of them. causing severe anemia. the last few days, or day, of anemia you will notice the animal being lethargic or skinny. chilly even. so please please take care of the fleas on your animals, it is like torture for them, and it can definitly kill them. that and fleas also carry tapeworm, which is another parasite which can harm your cat.
i also agree with the other members regarding spaying the mama cat. there are so very many kitties out there without homes, please don't add to the population.
after saying all that..i am very sorry for your loss. but as you said, maybe you can learn and do better. and that would start with flea control and spaying/neutering! :)

The day before he seemed fine, they all did. But later that day he also died. The two last kittens seemed good. They were fat and warm. When I went to school this morning, thebabies looked good. But when I got home, they werent good at all. They also had no energy and they were also fairly skinny. They later died, I knew it was to late for them.

I have no clue what happened to them all. It seems like Baby has been feeding them regularly. Maybe she ran out of milk or something. I have no clue. Perhaps it was the massive amounts of fleas they had, I dont know.

Well I am very sad about losing all of them, I felt like they were my own children. Hopefully I can learn what I have done wrong and be sure to be carefuler for the next batch of babies that baby has.

What next batch?

If you are still reading here, please, please get this cat, AND all her kittens spayed and neutered. The kittens could have been inbred, for one thing.

And it is cruel to force a cat to have batch after batch of kittens. Did you know one unspayed female and her first litter of kittens can produce 420,000 cats in 7 years? four hundred twenty thousand unwanted cats.

Thank you for this useful post. It doesn't matter that you revived an old thread. Your information about fleas is very useful, and the spay/neuter issue is always current.

Welcome to the board!
