How Long Does It Take a Cat to Deliver Kittens?

Answer

For household cats, the first kitten should arrive within an hour after the onset of contractions. Additional kittens could arrive immediately or up to 2 hours in between. There are cases, though not as common, but possible after delivery of the first kitten's, labour and contractions will cease for 24 to 48 hours and then labour will begin and more kittens will be delivered. The gestation or the length of pregnancy of a cat averages 64 days.
