Alright, no one give me a guilt trip. I rescued a kitten from a sewer manhole several months ago. He was healthy, until his stomach got bloated.
Needless to say, the male cat named 'Gutter', turned out to be a pregnant female cat.
3-4 weeks ago, she gave birth to 5 kittens. One was stillborn.
A week later another mysteriously died. (I know, I have no money for a vet and there aren't any "no kill" humane shelters. I assumed since it was her first litter, a loss or two is normal. They got fleas, and I was unable to treat them due to their age.
Last week I gave them a bath with "Dawn" dish detergent. Supposed to be safe, and it kills fleas.
In the last two days, two more died leaving only one.
At first the mother cat was fed kitten food for the vitamins, but my cousin went to the store and got adult cat food. We have them back on kitten chow, but I would like to save this one even though I have no money for a vet. Fleas are under control now, but worms are a possibility.
Anyone have any suggestions? (Please no guilt trips about me not being able to afford cats. That decision is past.)
