Our cat gave birth to her first two kittens very easily, silently and quickly within two hours. Then she was just resting and nursing them without even trying to give birth to the rest of her kittens (we could see that she had more kittens in her belly because it was moving). After 5 hours without any signs of labour I became kind of worried and I called in to see our local vet (we live in Maynooth, Co. Kildare Ireland). His assistant told us to bring the cat in so the vet could look at her. When I brought our cat the vet asked me to leave the cat and collect the kittens and the cat later but when I rang them 2 hours later I found out that our cat had got a cesarean section and they would keep her overnight. We were very shocked but what could we do... The vet had mentioned the possibility of an operation in case of an unsuccessful induction but had added that with cats the chance of a c-section is very small. Next day we collected our cat with 4 kittens in total, and of course she was very stressed out. Half of the day she was trying to hide kittens somewhere and we just had to stay with her until she got tired and calmed down. Later I check on the internet and discovered that a cat's labour can last for up to 2 sometimes even 3 days and it is NORMAL! I couldn't believe my eyes and I rang the vet. He said that he had induced the cat but she hadn't responded and that was why he had decided to perform the operation. But maybe those last 2 kittens were supposed to be born later and that was why our cat wasn't even trying to push them... I still don't know whether it was a good idea to show the cat to the vet so he could do the induction and to perform the operation on our cat after only 6 hours since she had started giving birth. Maybe we simply had to wait? Most importantly she's fine now the same as all her black kittens. In the beginning we wanted to give the kittens away for free but after the quiet expensive operation we decided to sell them for a small price.
P.S. All kittens found very good owners.
