There are many things that can cause diarrhea and some of them can be very serious. A nursing cat with diarrhea can get dangerously dehydrated, or if she has an illness or disease (which is quite possible, since you let her out and can't afford to take care of her) she can pass it on to the kittens and they could all get sick.

I suggest you find the money somehow - borrow it, use a credit card, set up payments with the vet, etc. This cat and her litter are solely your responsibility, since you let her get pregnant.

And PLEASE get this cat spayed, if she survives.
