I have a Cat who is just over a year old that delivered 3 kittens yesterday. She took about 7 hours. Afterr kitten no 3 I was sure I could feel another kitten inside her, but after a couple of hours I couldn't feel anything, and there has been no more births. I am wondering now if perhaps I was feeling her uterus contracting. She seems well, has eaten this morning and her kittens are nursing beautifully. I have read that there can be huge delays between kittens being born, so my question is, where exactly should I be feeling to be more sure that there are no more kittens? It goes without saying that if she seems in the least distressed I will take her to a vet immediately, but I do know that carting her and kittens off in the car so soon after delivery could do her psychological harm, and I'm reluctant to do that unless absolutely necessary.
