Is it okay that my cat only had one kitten in the litter?

Is something wrong with my cat? The one kitten seems very healthy.

While most litters are larger, singleton litters are possible for various reasons. If the kitten was born fine and appears to be of good size, everything should be okay!

It is normal for cats to have between 1 and 6 kittens during labour. Nutrition could be a key factor to the amount of kittens born.

Yes it is normal that your cat has had only one kitten. This is because your cat only mated one time with a male cat therefore only one kitten would be produced. If your cat had mated multiple times with the same or different male cat it would have had multiple kittens.

The size of a cat's litter may vary from one to ten or more. Having one kitten is normal, and smaller litters are more common in younger cats.

It is not totally abnormal for a cat to have a very small litter. It is advisable to have your cat checked by a vet to ensure she is healthy.

I'm unsure of the answer. I would think that have one cat in a litter is okay. You may want to take your cat to the vet just to make sure she is okay.
