       The cat may have developed depression after childbirth

       How to judge

       What are the hazards

       Once the female cat’s postpartum depression is formed, it will have a bad influence on her and her kittens. Some female cats with severe postpartum depression will refuse to eat, resulting in fatty liver and * * failure and other diseases leading to death. Some female cats refuse to breast feed their newborn kittens, even attack the kittens, and even eat their newborn babies.

       Most animal behaviorists attribute the cat’s behavior of eating a child to a kitten who is not motherly, or is disturbed by other unfamiliar odors to remove what she believes is a predator’s incentive. From the psychological point of view, the behavior of female cat eating is mostly caused by anxiety and tension caused by postpartum depression, and the extreme behavior of lack of security for the environment. Of course, there are exceptions to female cats eating babies. For example, the born kittens are born disabled or die young. This is the survival of the fittest in nature and is not in the scope of discussion.

       How to prevent

       Third, in the living environment to maintain a certain amount of sunshine, fresh air, female cat pregnancy to maintain a certain amount of exercise. Good prenatal environment and proper exercise are the most easy conditions for the prevention of postpartum depression in female cats. .

       There are three abnormal behaviors of postpartum female cats to kittens, each of which needs attention

       1¡¢ Females frequently move from one place to another

       When the light in the delivery room is strong, the temperature in the delivery room is low, the environment in the delivery room is noisy, and people frequently enter and leave the delivery room area, the female cat will have no sense of security, thus causing the behavior of hiding. Therefore, the cat delivery room needs to be specially set up:

       2¡¢ Mother cats don’t like to take care of them, or even don’t care for them

       Common behavior of a cat mother: after giving birth, she plays by herself; she doesn’t like feeding; even if she puts it beside her, she completely ignores it; some people will sit on her body

       In this case, we can only say that the mother of a cat is poor in motherhood and is not suitable for breeding because the mortality rate is very high without the care of a female cat! Because not only need to eat the cat mother’s milk, from which to obtain the energy of survival and antibodies against most diseases, but also need the temperature of the cat mother to maintain her body temperature. In the first month of birth, she needs to lick to defecate and urinate.

       In this case, the only way to do this is for the shoveling officer to feed the milk, promote urination and defecation, and even teach some behaviors, such as using cat litter and being close to people.

       3¡¢ The mother cat suddenly refused to take care of one

       There may be two reasons for a mother cat’s sudden refusal to take care of one, or even carry it out of the cat’s Nest: one is that the cat’s constitution is the weakest in the litter or has congenital defects; the other is that the excrement removing officer directly contacts a certain one without gloves.

       In the first case, if placed in a natural environment, this behavior is to protect the rest of the nest. Because if you die in a cat’s nest, it will attract other natural enemies, so abandoning this one can better protect others. Even some cat mothers will choose to eat the weak one directly

       For the second case, the solution is to wipe the cat’s ass and let the cat get the smell again. If the cat starts licking after smelling it, it means that the cat mother has accepted it again. At the same time, remember to wear disposable gloves when touching again.

       How to carry out artificial feeding, this is also a very serious thing, because the kittens have to eat many times a day, and eating too much can easily lead to the kittens’ digestive problems; and they should help the kittens defecate and urinate regularly every day.

       Talk about how to take care of cats in confinement

       1¡¢ What does a cat eat in confinement

It’s just that when feeding, we should know how to make a reasonable match and give the cat different food at different stages. While meeting the cat’s physical needs, we should also ensure that the diet is reasonable and the body is healthy.

       2¡¢ How to do calcium deficiency during postpartum confinement period

       Many female cats usually have convulsions and other symptoms after giving birth to kittens. This is because the calcium content of the female cat gradually decreases with the loss of breast milk. Therefore, the owners must pay attention to observe the state of the female cat after giving birth to the kitten, and see if they need calcium supplement during the period of confinement. Because parents do not know much about the knowledge of calcium deficiency in cats after childbirth, the mother cat will have the following symptoms during the period of birth.

       Therefore, after the female cat has given birth to her cubs, we should take appropriate calcium supplement, which can prevent the loss of calcium in the cat body and cause convulsions and other symptoms.

       3¡¢ Living environment requirements of confinement cats

       It is necessary to provide a quiet, clean and dry living environment with suitable temperature. It is very important to restore the health and improve the disease resistance of female cats. The cat’s nest should be disinfected regularly, and the residual food, feces and contaminated bedding should be removed in time to keep the surrounding environment clean and sanitary. In sunny weather, cats should be allowed to exercise indoors.

For example, calcium deficiency, if the cat is not fed enough nutrition, or because of pregnancy, the problem of age is particularly vulnerable to calcium deficiency.

       So under what circumstances will there be calcium deficiency? If the pregnant female cat lacks calcium, it will cause postpartum milk shortage or no milk. The female cat needs a lot of calcium during lactation. If the female cat’s own calcium content is not up to, it will lead to low blood calcium and convulsion. When cats enter old age, there will be osteoporosis and other problems. It is very necessary to supplement calcium for old cats to prevent bone problems.

       Cats with obvious calcium deficiency: when looking at the nails, the nails of healthy cats should be hard, transparent and glossy. When cutting nails, the sound is clear and the nails will not split. Otherwise, it is calcium deficiency. Second, look at the back, cats do not collapse when walking (mostly in lactating female cats), waist back straight. Otherwise, it is calcium deficiency. If adult cats do not lack calcium, it is not necessary to blindly supplement calcium, too much calcium will cause a burden on the cat’s body.
