Q. My cat has had three of her babies there I one left and its been an hour and a half since the last one. Is that normal?

Answered By

A. If it' s all normal you don t need to panic yet. If she is not distressed, if there are no active contractions you can monitor her for another couple of hours, sometimes the gap can be even longer. Definitely have her checked over if not settling or if able to see a sac or a feet, or if having contractions but no progress or if contractions too weak.
