Oh dear,I am so sorry to hear that this one kitten was hit and the possible other is missing. In this case, there isn't an easy way to tell if they are actively feeding kittens. The only way is that we should start to see her mammary glands reduce in size if no kitten is nursing. This usually can take a few weeks. But if the glands don't seem to be shrinking back to normal, then we'd want to try to follow her or visit places she tends to go in search of this possible kitten. Otherwise, we'd have to decide whether we risk another pregnancy or just take her in and hope there isn't a kittens she didn't bring (even though one would have expected her to if she brought one) to you.Best wishes with this possible missing kitten,Dr. B.
