it could bea cyst see a vet asap
Well you could...
For this type of circumstance you need to call a Vet or your S.P.C.A. Immediately. They are tuned to these types of circumstances, and some practices and facilities will donate the drug therapy needed for your felines. They will kindly direct you and recommend the appropriate therapy for your felines. They have hearts and they understand.
IT IS JUST A PHONE CALL.
This sounds like URI (Upper Respiratory Infection) This is probably why all your cats have this cold because it is contagious (airborn) A vet needs to be contacted A.S.A.P. and the cats need to be treated. You don't need a secondary infection during this time period which could lead to a chronic illness.
For now until you are able to get the help needed for your cats, you must keep them indoors and away from other animals. Keep your cats in a clean environment which includes clean food and water bowls and a clean home. Keep your home above 70 degrees and if you cats get wet either dry them off or make sure they stay warm while they dry off. A Humidifier for the room or a steaming bathroom would be great. But do not allow the cats to catch a chill.
AGAIN...CALL A VET A.S.A.P REMEMBER IT'S JUST A PHONE CALL.
These cats need treatment.
If you are on state benefits, you might qualify for free treatment under the PDSA (a charity for animal care), as mentioned above, your Vet will be able to get you in contact with them, or you can find their number in your local phone book.
I agree with above. Most likely a URI, or a "kitty cold". But they usually need to be seen / treated because cats can easily develop secondary infections. The URI is a virus, so it has to run its course (much like a human cold), but often cats will need to be treated with medications and / or eye creams.
Also be aware that cats are VERY GOOD at hiding when they don't feel well. So a cat that looks "well" might not be well at all.
Your cat's sense of smell is probably diminished, too, which means kitty might not want to eat. Try to feed your cat smelly foods, like sardines, warmed up with a little water, to encourage eating.
You might want to contact your local animal shelter or SPCA to see if they offer low cost vet care.
AnswerCats often touch their owners face to show love and affection. By "touch", I mean softly placing his or her paws to the owners face. If he/she is using their claws in a slapping manner, it is interpreted as "leave me alone".
yes table food is bad for cats! it can= death, heart disease, obesity If you just think you can feed your cat table scraps the above poster is correct, but if you feed them good dry food (some people also add some canned cat food) and you are eating chicken, turkey or fish, you could give them a little tiny piece on their plate for a treat. My cat Molly doesn't care for people food and just prefers to eat her dry/wet cat food.
Make sure the mother cat is fed properly, she has clean water several times a day. The bedding should be kept clean. The cat and her kittens should be in a big enough box or container where there is room for shavings for the kittens to go to the bathroom. Mom can take care of the rest.
