Mama cat after delivering kittens

My cat had kittens just yesterday. Tonight she has her " third eyelid" showing only a tiny bit, but it definitely is visible around her eye. She also has a somewhat large white bump on the wrinkly part of her butthole. She is very good to her kittens and had a wonderful delivery. I am just very nervous for her and want her to be a healthy mama.

She is still a kitten herself, she is 8months in age.

Hi well i would say that to be on the safe side I would take the mother cat and perhaps the kittens for a quick check up to make sure they are Ok. It is always advisable if there are any signs of any ill health after giving birth especially in a cat so young.

It may be nothing to worry about but I think it is better to be safe than sorry.

best wishes and congratulations on your new furry family.
