My Newest Family!!!

Here is my cat a couple of days ago, fat and fed up... due any minute - I KNOW!!!! I SHOULD have had her spayed, but I had a funny year last year and kept not doing it... hence the fat belly...

So first thing this morning, between me checking at 5.20 and Freddie getting up at 5.55, this first little one put in it's appearance... Smudges was so calm and quiet, and dealt with it all SO well!! She is very young herself, but she has been practising licking a lot on Mephie recently!!!

This looks as if it might be the little grey I have always wanted!!! Freddie fell in love and has already "bagged" her I think, 'cos my daughter and her boys have their eyes on one or two of the litter... It is suckling here and she is resting, waiting for the next bit!!

Here comes the next... very black with a lovely little white face... everso like Mephie actually... but NO!!! before you accuse him!!! I had him snipped many moons ago, like a proper pet owner!!! So it isn't him!!  This little one is about 4 mins old here!!

And opps, in the next minute, the third arrives, white all over with a black head and tail... it looks quite like it's aunty.. Quite big and strong... I helped her with" him" though, because she was still dealing with the business end of the afterbirth and cord of the second... I brushed his face gently with tissue to help him from the caul and so he could breathe.... awww, I was just SO happy. I think she has eaten the first placenta, but the vet said not to if possible, so I got rid of these two for her...

So, dear readers, here is the happy family... middle firstborn, left second and right the third out. Not been any signs of any more for which I am thankful really... we can keep them al, between usl and have no problems... all's well that ends well then, and she WILL be spayed when they are old enough to be weaned, I promise!!

She has eaten and been a fabulous mommy all day, but not drunk anything yet, so that's the next concern... no drink, not enough milk!! Mephie cannot understand the smells etc , and I am afraid he might think they are mice, so he is banned at the moment, in the nicest possible way!!

I will post some more pictures in the next day or so as they grow a bit and I have someone to take the pictures while I hold them... she lets me handle them, and is very trusting. Off to the vet tomorrow for a check... Woo, I am so pleased with her, she is so sweet
Thanks for looking
Love and light and kittens

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! I'm not a cat hater, but I'm not a cat lover either, BUT I am a pushover for any newborn. Its lovely that there are just the 3 and that you can keep them all between the family. Awwwwwwwwww! Hope everything goes well in the coming days

Frankie they are adorable, so different from when they were first born, I love the way they become all soft and fluffy within such a short time. Will be back to check up on progress throughout the next few weeks. Jenny xx

Oh Frankie - they are sooo gorgeous. I couldn't part wih the grey and white one either - although I'd be hard pressed to part with any of them.
Hope they all do well and Smudges enjoys her dose of motherhood.

Aww Frankie - I am definitely a cat lover and am so jealous you'll get to keep all three - although I have three of my own - I'd love more. Must have been wonderful to be part of it and what a clever mum cat! Give her a big bowl of something special from me x
