How is it going now? Did you got hold of a vet, and what is vet saying?

In cats, it happens water goes off too early, and although its worrying, it DOES happens the delivery comes OK in due time.

During you wait on further happenings / what the vet says, give her calcium rich food. Whatever she takes and you have at home.
Say, shells from hardboilded eggs, crushed into fine powder. Let her lick off your hand, or sprinkle in her food or water.

Too little calcium may cause weak labor...

Be prepared to rush her in.

I got in touch with a vet and she said to just wait since she’s not showing any of the othe labor symptoms so just be patient

sorry, the post disappeared. She seems exhausted, give her some glucose sugar. Perhaps giving a couple of droplets of white caro syrup, on her gum inside of lips. (the same advice for weak kittens). Be sure she is warm and comfy.


When you cut off the umbilical cord, use clean gears, but they dont need to be totally sterilized: mommas teeth arent sterile. You can even use your own nails. A Asherah

You can give the kittens some luke warm water, to drop off your finger, or from a dropper, if momma too tired as yet to let them nurse. Be careful... I hope they can suckle momma soon enough.

Healthy kittens should manage to wait some.

Im happy to hear the delivery went OK, although the broken waters. But its possible she got to work harder than usual because of this. OR it may even be so, someone is still inside of her.
So be ready for everything.
