briana b's Avatar   My Cat had 5 kittens yesterday and I can still feel one inside of her. What
should I do? Her last birth was at 6 last night and it is now 2:30 p.m. She is showing no signs of going back into labor. I know that there is still another kitten or 2 because it balls up when you touch her belly and it is moving and kicking. So I know that something is still alive in there. I am just worried and need some advice...

Thanks in advance,
I am calling the Vet now...Thank you for the help. I have not experienced kitty birth before and I was unsure what to expect. I will update when I see what is going on.
I called my vet and she said that IF there is one still in there that she will probably pass it. I still feel it moving and she said that possibly she got pregnant after she was pregnant. If you know what I mean. Also if she were not done she would not have quit contracting and if she starts again than it is time for the other to come out. She said that i could go have x-rays done but there was really nothing i could do because she is not in distress and is doing fine on her own. I will update in a few days to let you know if she has another or not.

You need to take her immediately to the vet. The unborn kitten must be removed or she will die of toxicity.

Take her to the vet imediatly, she and her kitten(s) might die if you don't have a c-section on her soon.

Briana, my cat had 5 kittens about 3 1/2 mo. ago. I swear, I kept thinking the same thing! I was SO SURE there was at least one more kitten in there! I called the doc, he said it was highly unlikely (but NOT impossible, some have been found 2 days later but of course, they were already dead).

He was obviously right because she and her babies are fine, and I know because they are running all over my home creating mayhelm as I write (one is chewing on my fingers because I won't let her get on my keyboard so she can swat at the mouse's pointer!!). But, if you truly believe you feel movement, rush to see a Vet. However, with this amount of time lapsed, because her water broke yesterday, it would be a miracle, for it to still be alive, but if there is one in her that is dead, it could infect her and eventually kill her. You could watch her for the next 24 hours for signs of sickness, (no eating, drinking, not taking care of her babies properly, etc.), then take her to the Vet if shes not better. I would definitely call the Doc for some detailed advice and ask lots of questions until you are satisfied and feel better about the situation at the moment. That's what I did.

Well good luck and be sure to let us all know how it goes!
