What do you call the slimy fluid that is produced when cats give birth? What is its purpose?

1 Answer

The slimy fluid that is produced when a cat gives birth is called placental fluid or after birth. This is produced for the mother’s consumption. A cat will typically lick this substance after giving birth in order to get back the nutrients that it lost to its kittens during the birthing process.
