    She may have only had one, especially if the kitten is on the larger side.

    If you are concerned you could always have your veterinarian take an x-ray of her abdomen.

    I've never known a cat to have only a single kitten. I presume you've looked around where mamma has made a place for her new family. I did a quick Google search and found this on The Cat Site at http://www.thecatsite.com/t/243762/concerned-about-cat-pregnant-with-only-one-kitten "The vet said that while rare, it does happen and didnt seem to concerned."

    Being a street cat, she my have been undernourished, and may have resorbed a few kittens early on in pregnancy. Small chance of a stillbirth that hasn't been passed - this is very bad.

    Be a responsible pet owner and bring mama cat to be spayed before she gets pregnant again..

    He's joking. But if tomcats have access to your home, they will kill (but not eat) the ones who don't have their scent. If you're concerned, check around, or follow mama around the house. She may be relocating her kittens to a new nest (clothes basket, warm lint pile behind dryer, etc.).

    My cat gave birth to 5 kittens, she was 1 year old and it was her first time too. We thought she was finished after squeezing out 4 kittens, her tummy returned to regular size, but after a 40 minutes time lapse there came another one, so having 1 kitten inside of her doesn't mean you can clearly see/feel it.

    I think it's uncommon for them to give birth to only one, but it's possible, ofcourse if you wanna be certain you could take her to the vet.

    You obviously like animals enough to feed her. Why not get her spayed so that she doesn't produce more cats? If money is an issue, there are places that will spay her for free or next to free. Millions of cats are killed each year because of overpopulation.

    On our farm, we get up to litters of 9. Be happy it is one. Go neuter your pet so it doesn't wind up being a baby factory on my farm.

    My Grandmother used to "take them swimming".. I.E. Dropping the cats in the pond... Kittens can't swim. We used to have up to 100 cats on the farm, now we are going through a dry patch and have only 40 ish,

    This is why cat overpopulation exists. If you feed her, then every baby she poops out is your responsibility. You can't just say she does whatever she wants and then wash yourself clean of it. She really needs to be fixed unless you want to care for dozens of cats.

    I think this is a different situation. Its just one cat.



    Yeah, it's one cat with a kitten factory in it's stomach. What part of this equation are you not getting? icon_rolleyes.gif

    If he made man in his own image, that means he has a little dick and a huge belly. Fortunately some men figured out how to reverse that. icon_lol.gif
