Hi everyone!

I need someone's help who knows a bit about cat labour! My cat has gone into labour and has just had one kitten and it was dead but not deformed but really small....so we arent sure if she has gone prem or if it has just died before she had it......now im pretty sure that there is still more kittens in her but its like she has stopped giving birth....so does anyone know how long it usually takes in between giving birth to each kitten?

Thanks it will really be apprieciated!

I don't know much about kitty labour.
I've only read and heard that they supposed to be okay by themselves.

But since the first one is dead and you're certain that there are more inside her, I definitely reccomend you to take her to a vet immediately.

She seems to be alright she is lying there purring and you can see the others moving around inside her.....But its just really weird that its like the birth has just stopped its been about an hour or two since she had the first one

With one still born you need to take your cat to the vet. Please! A cat will purr when they are in pain as well as when they are content so purring is not a good thing to measure a cat's contentment by. It could be your cat is to young to have kittens and so she needs to be seen. I will put this in cat health for you so you can get others with knowledge to chime in should they still be awake. Good luck!

You need to remove the dead kitten if you can without distressing mom. Wrap it in newspaper and place it in a plastic bag and put it away from the mom cat. I am sorry the birth is not going in a routine way. If this is going to be even more difficult for her, you might want to get her spayed after the kittens are old enough to be weaned. Good luck.
