My cat is in labor - HELP
yeah my cat is finally having her kittens. The first kitten was born but with major birth defects and died, rip lil kitten. So now I'm sitting here with my kitty waiting for the rest of the kittens to be born. I'm very nervous, I'm not sure what to do, or if there is anything I can do to help my kitty. I'm afraid all of the kittens will be still born. It's been a awhile since the first kitten arrived. No other kittens yet.
Has anyone here had a cat that had kittens? Any vetanarians on here?
No, but I hear there are vets in the real world. You may want to call one.
They are closed, and very expensive, and my car is in the shop which is costing $1,000. so I'm a lil broke. If you don't know or have anything nice to say, then shut the fuck up!!! The forums won't come crashing down if some one is nice or helpful for once.

Everyone seems to be pretty much in agreement, though. As soon as possible if the animal is in distress you should seek emergency care. If not, contact a vet in the morning and at least see if there is a procedure you can follow.
Also, I doubt this is important to you, but have your animals spayed.
My cat had kittens last summer. I Googled for help. All three of her kittens were fine.
And if you ask me, the lives of your furry little ones > car repair...

This is her first and only litter.
Thank you for the links, and yes llamas my cat is most important. Right now she is just laying next to me purring.
Wow, glad everything is ok and momma kitty doing good. Everyone can move on...cat-astrophe averted.

What's your plan afterward regarding the kittens? Are you going to keep them all? How do you know she's going to have 4 more? Did you take her to the vet?

Turn the lights on.
