Hello. Yesterday my cat gave birth to 5 wonderful kittens. Everything's been fine so far except one detail that makes me worry. It's already been a day after birth, but the cat is still having a very heavy breath. The temperature is fine - 38,5; her ears and nose are a little bit hot. She breathes with her mouth open and with her tongue sticking out, like a dog. Breathing is rather fast. Sometimes she also hisses.
However, her appetite is fine, as well as defecation and urinating. So it all looks normal but I am really worried about that breathing.
Does anybody know what can cause that? Any help is really appreciated.

what if you can't afford to take her to a vet?
When in doubt or questioning, MAKE A VETERINARY APPOINTMENT!!!

Are there any free veterinary services in your country? This is what I'd first think of. Also, I'd try to look for some websites that offer free veterinary consultations. If I can't help the cat myself since it needs a surgical operation, this might be the same question as what poor people in poor countries do when they themselves need an urgent medical help. Emotion: sad I'd not stop looking for money though.
Hi, ironically, my cat had given birth today as well. For the first time, 5 kittens. Its my first experience with cats birth. My kitty is also breathing rapidly, since its not usual behavior of hers, I googled and stumbled upon ur post here. Hows your cat now? Is this kind of breathing is normal to her condition? As u have probably been through with it , please give me some advice!
How's your kItty now.?
