Question
tonight we stumbles across our cat  delivering to a litter at our door we believe that it was the first now there is only 3  is their a possibility of having a first litter of three or could their be more and we just don't know it?

Answer
Hi
the size of a litter can vary greatly from just one to 6 or 7. There is no real way for you to know if their any more inside of her, if she has given birth ok on her own with this 3 then i would suggest that that is all there is. I wouldn't worry too much, even first time mums are very good at knowing what to do, let her get on with it and just be there for her.
