My parents cat is in the process of having kittens as I type this...I think. This is her third litter, second since we've had her. At 1pm this afternoon we found her in her box with 2 kittens but she still looked fat. At 6pm there were still only 2 but when I checked again at 9, there were four. She STILL looks pregnant...I mean last time she had them she looked deflated afterwards...is it likely she will still have more? or could there be a complication?? What should we do???Answer Question

I'm sure your cat is fine. We had a barn cat that took 5 hours to have a litter of kittens (she ended up having 6 of them). Watch the cat, and make sure she is acting okay. As long as she is taking care of the kittens that she has, and if she doesn't act like she is in any additional stress (besides the pain/stress of labor) then she should be okay. Call the vet if you think there is something wrong. If you gently squeeze her lower abdomen, you will be able to feel if she still has babies in her. Animals don't always look "deflated" after giving birth. You can tell when a cat is pushing, make sure she isn't pushing for too long w/o giving birth.
