Why Does My Kitten Shiver After Eating?

my kitten has been eating great for about 3-4 days now. then she started shivering and not moving her tail or anything, but still breathing fine. i feel like there is no air in her lungs so im assuming it’s because of the food…but why would my cat shiver after eating?

Answers:

My baby went through the same thing — not sure what it was! It lasted all night long until she purred more than usual at 5 am this morning. I’m thinking maybe just too much protein (and/or fat?) on an empty stomach for a young cat? We’re back to normal now though 🙂 Maybe you should try feeding him small meals more often instead of one large meal every 4-5 days? You can throw leftovers into his dish if he won’t eat them before they go bad! My friend keeps saying that with cats – “You know how they say cats will starve themselves to death?” BLECH!!! That’s true only IF THE CATS ARE STARVING AND THERE IS NO FOOD LEFT!! See here: http://www.thefelinefederation….gration_treats There are lots of good resources out there as well as medical resources from veterinarians who specialize in feline medicine – your vet may be able to provide those as well, even if you aren’t able to afford a specialist yet 😉 Hope this helps! Good luck with your little guy 🙂
