Miscarriage?
My cat was obviously pregnant. Nipples fully developed, belly grew quite a bit in the last month. Last night I found that she apparently miscarried a kitten on my floor. The kitten was fully developed with claws and fur, everything, and the placenta was laying beside it. My cat was there next to it licking and cleaning the dead baby. What I find odd is that it was only one fully developed baby and she did not deliver any other kittens (and this happened last night). Should I be expecting more soon or is it possible that she was only expecting the one? The day this happened she was abnormally aggressive toward the other pets but today personality is back to normal and her appetite is back to normal too.

how old is she? its not common for a queen to have only one kitten but will sometimes if she is very young or very small...but I would think she would either go into labor if she was carrying more or would abort? that I'm sorry I can't give you a good answer to.
Was the dead kitten really dried out like it had been dead for awhile? or did it appear to have maybe died during birthing?..... It really wouldn't hurt for her to see a Vet just to be sure she isn't still carrying some dead kittens....
Otherwise she sounds like she is acting normally, not in distress and her stomach back to normal size...appearing like perhaps it was only the one kitten she carried....but again only an exam would tell you that for certain.

She is just a little over a year and she's pretty small. It was still wet and had just happened in the time I went upstairs to change my clothes and came back down and there it was in the middle of the floor. She was just laying there sleeping when I went up stairs and I didn't hear her moaning or anything. Thanks for your help.

you'll just now have to also watch for signs that her mammary glands are drying up naturally and she doesn't start to swell up with milk and get a very painful condition called Mastitis....keep an eye on her:))
