Question by sheneenie7: How can I tell if my pregnant cat is having trouble with labor and giving birth?
I have 2 cats: a mother and her daughter. They both snuck out and got pregnant at the same time. Yesterday, the mother cat gave birth to 4 beautiful, healthy kittens. Now, her pregnant daughter is nursing her mother’s kittens. She is showing signs of labor and contractions for nearly 24 hours now, but hasn’t given birth yet. This is her first litter. I am concerned that nursing while she’s in labor has affected her ability to give birth. Can someone help me?

I shouldn’t really affect her ABILITY, but nursing taxes very heavily on her strength and so does being pregnant. separate the two families. and get all of them spayed or neutered as soon as they are old enough. they will be happier, healthier, and you will have helped the over population problem. 3 birds with 1 stone
