Hello, my name is Dr. Kara and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I understand that your queen has had two kittens but that her abdomen still feels larger then normal and you are wondering if she may have more kittens to deliver.

The short answer is yes, she may have more kittens to deliver.
Queens will allow mating over several days, even with different males. And some queens will go into heat even after a successful mating. So there may be due different dates depending upon breeding dates.
Two kittens isn't a very big litter either, so it would make sense there are more kittens to deliver.

I recommend that she see her veterinarian. They can take a radiograph and tell you whether there are more kittens or not. If she is comfortable, eating, drinking, not pushing actively then she is probably fine and she may deliver additional kittens in the next several days. But if there are signs that she has more kittens and they have died before being born then she may need a caesarian section to remove the kittens and save her life.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
