I put 2 kittens and the mother cat into the carton box and let them share a room with my cat, Noo, in the second floor since i saw 2 kittens falling down to the ground from the cabinet. I get troubles from here. I found that my cat has fleas again, she got fleas from the mother cat because i saw there are many fleas on kittens and the mother cat looks so dirty also. I really hate to to see fleas on my Noo... I feed Noo and the mother cat in 2 bowls that are put in 2 corners of the room. But the mother cat is very forcible, she eats so fast and then go to my Noo's bowl to eat more. Noo is still a kitten then she has to go and sit to see the mother cat eat her food. When i am in there, i don't allow the mother cat does it, but when i go, the mother cat does it again... Sigh, i am tired with it...My poor Noo is thinner since i let three of them share that room with Noo. Should i put them into the cabinet in the first floor as in previous time?

Some cats behave as if they are starving and cannot get enough food. Since you said the mother cat had two kittens, it is very possible she is lactating and needs the extra food to do so. Here's my advice. Separate the mother cat from all of the kittens, including Noo, at feeding time. Give the mother cat a little extra food in her bowl. Separating them all at feeding time will help Noo to eat her meal and gain more weight. As for the fleas do you have a plan to eliminate them?

I will bring Noo and her bowls to my room whenever i feed them then Noo can eat all food that i feed her. About fleas, i have no solution yet. Three of them have too many fleas, i am freak out when seeing it on their body. Every afternoon, i have to see and catch fleas on Noo's body, hix... Do you have any solution for it? Help me, please, i really hate to see fleas on Noo's body.

i think you are going to have to find a way to get rid of all the fleas on all the cats. im not sure what will work but if one has them they all have them. they can jump long ways and will lie in wait for anything with blood when they fall off on the bed, floor or anything. you need to do a search on how to get rid of them.

There is a temporary solution. Do you have original Dawn dish liquid? If yes, give Noo a bath and use the Dawn dish liquid to bathe her. Leave it on for about five to ten minutes. As you're waiting, use a flea comb to get the fleas off her and toss them into a bowl of hot water mixed with more Dawn dish liquid. If you don't have a flea comb, head to your local pet store and buy one before giving Noo a bath. A flea comb shouldn't be expensive. Note: You will need to do this with all of them. If the other kittens are a few weeks old, give them a gentle bath using your hands. Do not put them directly under running water. Put water into your hand and rub the water on the younger kittens (assuming they are younger than Noo) until they look semi-wet. Apply a small amount of Dawn dish liquid and lather them up. Wait five minutes. Use the flea comb. Do the same with the mother cat. Also, for the mother cat, I strongly recommend you clip her nails first, because she is likely to claw and scratch you. Wear a long sleeve shirt too. Fleas will also spread to your home. You'll need chemicals to get rid of them. I use a variety of flea killers for my house. Follow the directions on the back of the can. Also if you are able get the topical flea preventative. I love Frontline, because it has never failed me. Check for availability online within your country for online pet stores that deliver if you can't find a decent price at a pet store.

Try to feed your little thin cat with the food when the mother cat is away from them. Make sure that you are near them without getting the noises to the mother cat

Oh, since i allow them stay in the same room with Noo in the second floor, the mother cat always stay in there. She never goes out as previous time. I think...she just wait food that i feed her only... This time i bring Noo to my room and let she eat in there. But Noo is really naughty, she never eats all, she just eat a little bit and then play and then eat...it takes a long time for her to eat all her food...
