You should take her to the vet ASAP as the kitten could die if not born on time. She may need a boost of calcium to get her labor going again.

Drue...is she straining?? Is she showing any signs of distress?? I think if you are worried..the best thing to do is to get her to your vet.

Why take chances if she still has a kitten inside her time is running out and it could also end up making the momma sick.

Ok, first ... breathe in ... ok now breathe out.

If your girl is not straining, pushing or otherwise in obvious signs of labor and she is not in any way shape or form demonstrating distress of any kind whatsoever, then the chances are good that she is fine. However, your vet is the ~only~ person who can accurately assess her circumstances. Are you willing to take the risk of not taking her in? What if she really is in trouble? Are you 100% absolutely certain you felt a kitten kick you when you picked her up? If you are 100% absolutely certain, then she probably does need your vet's assistance in delivering. If you are not 100% absolutely certain that is what you felt, then you could choose to give it some time and see how she progresses through the night. But, if she changes her behavior and becomes lethargic or stops caring for her kittens, if her vocalizations increase, she is showing obvious signs of real distress, or is showing any kind of vaginal discharge other than a small drop or two of blood ... you stop everything you are doing and take her in to be see by a vet right then. You don't waste precious time to come here and post a message about it, you get her in. You can update us all after you've gotten back home - OK?

How is she behaving with the babies? Has she cleaned everybody up and began nursing them? How do they look? Are they well-formed, do they have fur on most of their bodies? Are they fractious and crying or are they falling asleep on the nipple?

the babys look well clean and feeding well and she looks like she loves her job because she does not stop purring so she is caring for them well just like the last litter

That sounds good. Has Momma had anything to eat yet? You might want to offer her a little water as well.

That seems like what happened to me, I got worried b/c I thought I felt another kitten kick and she had seemed to stop any thing that looked like labor all together! She was panting alot, but no straining, no more pushing, nothing. I had the same worry but it turned out she was just fine and panting of course from having five babies lol, and the kick I tought I felt was my mistake.

Hey Drue....I don't know if you continually allow your mom cat to be mated...but I would certainly recommend that this be her last litter. This will require that mom remain indoors only and away from intact males until the kittens are weaned and she can be safely spayed. Unless she is part of a registered/pedigreed breeding program, she needs to be spayed. It will be healthier for her.

If you let us know where you are, we can help you to find a spay clinic for when it is the right time. For now....keep your girl and her kittens indoors only.

Katie
