    It all sounds OK so far hun :)

    Some queens can go up to (and sometimes longer than) 24hours between kittens!

    If she does become distressed, or is actively pushing for longer than 45 mins - 1 hour please give your vet a call. They're usually give free advice on the phone :)

    I agree with Aurelia, no need to panic. Long gaps are quite normal and in my experience often come after two kittens have been born.

    Hiya, my cats first two kittens were born 16 minutes apart, number three was 2 and a half hours later and 4 was 3 and a half hours after that :) It can take a long time! Hoping for a happy and healthy mom and litter for you!
