|Each kitten has only one father and kittens within the same litter may all have different fathers.|
Cats are induced ovalators which means they release the eggs when bred. So its very possible if a tom mated with her on day 1 and she released eggs about 24 hrs later, and she was mated again on day 4 or 5 (still in heat) additional eggs could be released then - and you would have kittens almost 5 days apart in age.
That's why you are ok with contolled breeding, but not random breeding. Probably why you have more complications or an occasional dead kitten in those situations.
