Answer: If the mother cat trusts you, then right away.

i sure hope so because my cat ate some of my dog's food which had wormer in it and she is nursing her newborn kittens!

I takes about 8 weeks for the newborn to become a full grown kitten. And about 8 to 9 month for the kitten to become a juvenile (young) cat. By this time though, it is not a "full" grown cat.

your cat may have a disease. or is just unable to carry kittens. either that or the father might have a disease. a disease that makes them unable to have kittens. you should take your cat to the vet to see why.

If you care about it , you can feed it warm puppy or kittens milk using an eyedrop bottle.

A cat can have 5 litters in 1 year and each litter can have 5-9 newborn kitties! :D

The best idea is to leave the cat there until the cat comes out.

Placenta comes out after each kitten.

A cat won't go into heat if she's nursing. If a male cat sees a female cat with kittens he will probably kill all the kittens to force the female into heat. (Siamese cats don't do this, nor do males who live in catteries.) IT is hello

A cat usually comes back into heat when her kittens are weaned, but some Queens start as soon as the kittens are born.

If you have a boy cat, that probably means that she has mated with your cat.

I had Kittens that were killed same way. And it turned out to be Mother cat. If the kittens were either sick or there is a oder she doesnt know. She will eat them as food.

No. Also, it is best to keep the male cat away from the female after she has given birth as he may kill the newborn kittens.

no they can not only if the cat and another cat can have the kittens

The mother cat will want to stay near her kittens so place both water and food near her .

No, newborn kittens are not born with intestinal parasites, or worms. Cats pass eggs or larvae in their stool or milk, and therefore kittens can be infected by their mother while nursing. If the larvae passes through the kitten before maturing, the mother cat can also reinfest herself when grooming the kittens.

Its generally not a good idea to let a male cat near kittens as he may harm them. no they dont harm the kittens but they dont care for the kittens - my experience with our cats :(

From day one, but cautiously. It depends on the mother cat. If you have excellent relations with the mother cat you can handle the kittens from day one. I have a mother cat that trusts me totally and she don't mind too much. If I handle her kittens too much then she gets protective. If you do not have excellent relations with the mother cat be cautious and handle the kittens from about 2 weeks, but only occasionally when the mom isn't around.

Well, this depends. Is the cat your cat, or is she a stray? If she's your cat, of course, keep her inside and nurture her until her kittens are weaned and she is at full strength again; if she is not you cat, she's a stray or somebody else's and she doesn't have a collar, do the same to her as you would your own cat. Take care of her and nurture her inside the safety of your own home until she is, and her kittens are, ready to find new homes.

Male cats have been known to kill newborn kittens, but not eat the brain. He is a Zombie!!

Yes. We often assume that when a cat has a litter of kittens there are several but, on occasion the cat will have only one kitten (particularly if the cat is small herself).

Yes, newborn kittens do deficate. But they only do so when the mother cat stimulates them through licking. If the kitten has been abandoned, you can stimulate them to go to the bathroom by very gently wiping their bottom with a damp, warm, clean wash cloth.

A mother cat should always have plenty of food near by when she is nursing her kittens, she will eat as much as she needs.
