What Do You Do If Your Cat Has A Dead Kitten?
  • Get rid of it or she will. You won't like her method.
  • So sorry to hear about the kitten. Any baby be it human or animal that dies is sad. The other poster is correct. Bury the kitten right away.
  • Don't knock it off as dead right away. Pick up the poor seemingly dead kitty. Rub it very gently and warm it's body; push very gently on it's chest and see if you can get it's little lungs and heart going. Sometimes life just needs a push, but be careful, if you push/rub TOO hard, you'll break the kitten's ribs.


Make sure it's dead. If you have a ball syringe you can use that to gently suction fluid out of the cat's mouth to clear its airway.
