All three at the same time! Get them to a vet!!

Lets keep us posted!

Where did you get them? Have they been vaccinated?

Maybe they either they all ate something bad, or they have a contagious disease. I second Luba - vet!

Yeah, I called the VET ER and they said it could just be worms and to keep them away from their food (even tho they arent eating it) and too call first thing in the morn. I just pray its treatable. Their momma just showed up one day and gave birth to them, we just brought them to be inside cats about 2 months ago when we lost their sis to getting hit by a car. They havent had worm meds in 2 months either.

Hello K

Welcome. You may want to start a new thread but I'll stick to this one for you.

I dont' think this is anything any of us can really help with. The cat should be seen by a vet.

Why is this cat having multiple pregnancies? If she is unable to deliver her last kitten, she must go the vet or she will die.

Tell your sister to get her spayed.

Please do a search and read about PANLEUKOPENIA. I'm not saying it's that, but it's definetely something to worry about.

Just an update....Yesterday after we got them some meds for the vomiting, 2/3 kitties began to eat on their own again...1 still wouldnt eat. I had to go to the vet yesterday and get special food to force feed her with. Well we fed her twice yesterday and IT WORKED she began to eat on her own this morning!!! We are getting them wormed today, we found sum suspicious stuff in there fecal. But other then that everything seems to be better.!!

Actually to be honest it looked like a slug wrapped in fecies. We show my friend who is in vet school and currently works in the vet office we take all of our animals to...and she the one who recommended worming them. They've been eating healthy and are beginning to realease some worms in there litter box!
