I am so sorry Mama lost three babies. That does not mean she cannot give birth to live ones.
Can you please tell me her age and if this is her first litter?
Did the babies appear to be full term?
Did she or you get it out of the sac right away?
Get the baby out of the sac as soon as its born.
Use a rough towel or washcloth to rub the kitten to stimulate it to breathe. Clean the mucus out of its mouth.
Use thread to tie the cord 3 inches above the navel. Then cut an inch above the tie.
Cats have two uterine horns so mommy can have kittens in each.The nursing by the baby should bring on further contractions so you want to encourage that. Also allow her to eat the afterbirth as that brings on contractions as well
It can actually take 30 hours or more for a cat to complete a four kitten(average) delivery. When she is done she will want to eat as they feel starved. She CAN have more up to 30 hours later.
Please keep me posted on the delivery.
I am praying all will go well.
