Hi everyone!
My cat has been having contractions for about 4 hours now. She has tried to have the first kitten breach and the head and shoulders won't come out, it is already dead. Can anyone please tell me what to do?

:confused:

Just found this:

"Breech births, where the kitten comes out tail first instead of head first, are common and usually pose no problems. In general, if your cat has been actively contracting for more than 1 hour without producing a kitten, it's time to call your veterinarian."

Take the cat to the vet.
