Is it normal for a cat to have a litter with only 1 kiten?

My cat gave birth to only one kitten. All the other cats that I know of have had at least 3 kittens or more, Is there something wrong with her?

It's not usual, but especially if the cat is young and it's a first litter, one kitten is born. Keep watch that momma cat is willing and able to take care of the kitten. Otherwise you will have to step in and hand raise the baby. Your cat should be checked by a vet to make sure there are no underlying medical conditions. Unless you are a breeder, please think about spaying your cat to avoid anymore litters.
