We found a litter of kittens under a trash compactor at work at two weeks old. Their mother had been caught recently in the store and was put to sleep for injuring an employee. So we kept two of the kittens and bottle fed them and now the female is pregnant with her brothers kittens. Is incest dangerous with cats? What should I do if her lack of weening from her mother leads to problems, such as not letting her kittens feed? Also, this is my first litter so what can I look for in her habits to make sure she has a comfortable place to stage the birth?
These animals should of been spayed and neutered! The chances of disease, congenital and hereditary problems can increase in this situation. The Queen should be seen by a vet and tested for parasites, Leukemia and Feline Aids virus. Since she is pregnant it is not a good idea to have her vaccinated. I hope she was prior to pregnancy.
