Hello, I looked over the question you sent.
This is not a case that requires a visit to a vet clinic or the ER. However, you need to keep a close eye on it.
All fetus should be expelled from your cat's womb. If the fetus is left in the mother cat's womb, she could reach an emergency situation.
After giving birth, mother cats lose a lot of energy. You need to keep the mother cat's body temperature with a blanket or something. And there is no energy, and there may be no appetite. It is good to give small amounts of high-calorie, tasty feed or snacks.
Check the cat's body temperature, breathing rate, and appetite.
After giving birth, you need to observe the condition and give a lot of care so that the mother cat can recover.
Please do not hesitate to ask any further questions you may have. Thank you.
