My 5yr old cat, Sophy, had her kittens on Tues, Mar 24th. She had 6, 1 died a few minutes after it was born, later that day she laid on one and it smothered to death. She stopped caring for another one and it slowly got weaker and died on Sunday evening then a few hours later she smothered another kitten. She has 2 kittens left and we are constantly watching over them...This is not her first litter and it usually takes a few hours to deliver all her kittens (she usually has between 7-9 kittens) this time it took over 24 hrs to deliver all the kittens. Why would she smother her babies, if we don't keep pulling the two that are left out from under her they would be dead too. Could my cat be sick or getting to old to have kittens, can anybody help me, please.
