Customer Question
My cat is delivering kittens...
My cat is delivering kittens. She has only given birth to 2 kittens in the last hour. She MUST have more kittens (her abdomen is so big), yet it has been 1/2 an hour since the second birth and no more kittens OR placenta. Do you think she is 'OK' ????

Hello,

Yes she is probably just fine, Try not to disturb her and allow the kittens already delivered to nurse. Nursing will stimulate more uterine contractions.

If she doesn't deliver another kitten within an hour, message me back again
