Just pray for her. Labor comes in waves as you muscles contract and relax. God does a good job in helping her. She will soon give birth to tiny blind things. Most mama kitties are good mamas and clean them up by themselves by licking them and then making sure they find food, unless they are busy birthing and cleaning another, up to 8 babies. But most mamas are good. Sometimes a mama cat doesnt take care of her kittens, but that doesn't happen often. So just pray that she will be a good mama and the babies won't need any help at all.

If you are concerned, call a local vet and ask them.

That sounds very normal to me Tigger.  Maybe she isn't quite to the point of giving birth, but just close.  If you are worried about her, take her to the vet.

I'm talking to co worker now. her cats have had kittens, and she told me it takes a while and to not touch her. She knows what she will do, She said get her bed ready and that it will be messy lol. Dear lord I don't know why you sent me a stray kitty thats preg. But since you gave her to me. Don't know why. But you handle her.

I was just talking to someone who knows about cats, and they said basically the same thing. 

 

Why did God send her to you?  Probably because he knew you were a compassionate person who would take care of her.

One kitten out, Charlie put her bed and everything in front of big mirror so she can't see us, but he can keep eye on her with mirror. LOL he says they look like a rat.

I would say the mother cat is close to giving birth and suspect the kittens are moving around inside of her and the mommy cat is laying on her side for comfort reasons.  Everything you have described so far sounds very normal as the kittens will come in their time so just be patient in waiting.  But I agree with some of the others if you are worried something is wrong then by all means call a vet and ask them on the phone.  There is no charge for the call and the vet's are more than happy to advise you over the phone if things are serious or not.  I have had to make a many of calls to my vet.  Making a bed for the mommy cat is a good idea.

I had a stray cat who had many kittens at my home.  I just had her fixed.  She was not completely tame, and I couldn't have gotten her to the vet before.  As a result, I have a lot of cats, but at least the cycle should end now.  After the kittens are weaned, you can seek to find them homes and have the Mother cat fixed.  Till then, keep her inside.  Kittens are not in high demand.  How many kittens did Annie have?

They will need to be with their mother for at least 4 to 6 weeks, at least till they are weaned.  You probably should be asking around as soon as possible, because in my experience, there aren't that many people looking for cats.  As I sit here typing, I am looking at 9 cats in the living room with me.  The rest are around here someplace, and I never intended to have more than 3 at a time.  I had one stray cat hanging around the house, and most are her kittens.  When they are old enough to adopt out, I hear they are easier to find a home for if they have been fixed.  Just make sure to keep the mother cat indoors until the kittens are weaned and she is fixed or this will happen again, many times over.  Good luck.
