However, it is quite rare for the mother will eat their kittens. The reason why cats eat mostly like their kitten is born unhealthy or stillborn it is more common in domestic cats than in purebreds. They do commonly eat the placenta of their kittens and this is completely normal behavior.

It's a rare act for a mom cat to eat her kittens. Usually, they do eat the placenta which is completely normal behavior. However, a cat can eat her kittens if it's severely malnourished, or underweight.

Cats may eat their kittens due to a variety of reasons, such as stress, illness, or lack of maternal instinct. This behavior is very uncommon in domesticated cats.

Cats eat kittens because they’re unhealthy or not likely to live. The mother cat may instinctively eat the unhealthy one to prevent other kittens from getting sick from bacteria.

Cats may eat their kittens if they are sick or stillborn. Additionally, cats may eat their kittens if they feel threatened or if they are unable to provide enough food for them. In some cases, cats may also eat their kittens if they are in an unfamiliar environment. It is important to provide proper care and nutrition for cats and their kittens to avoid any potential issues.

The most likely reason a kitten will be eaten is that it was born unhealthy or stillborn. The cat may eat the kittens for any other reason but they are more common in feral cats living in the wild without food or shelter.
