Five Kittens


Oh well onto other news, our only female cat among 6 males just had her kittens April 30, the day we came home from the zoo. Their eyes have already begun to open. The assortment proved no different than what we already have around. We have 1 orange tabby, Monoco - our eldest. Then thier is a black cat named Charcoals, then Aquicheta a regular tabby, two twin boy kittys both tabby's, Russia who is a white and tabby patched fluffy male, and then Natalya who is a tabby with a small amount of patchy orange ect. Well Natalya's kittens proved to be 1 black female kitten born first. Then an orange tabby, then another rather large and difficult to birth black male kitty, then a lighter tabby much like Natalya (and quite the spitfire) and lastly a regular tabby. It is really funny because her two tabby's fight only with each other and like mad they do! No wonder she had SO much activity going on in her belly as it moved like the waves of the ocean. With her spitfire of a kitten who fights with her brother!

Farm Kittens

Three of the five new kittens enjoying a snooze on a warm afternoon. Milo being the orange kitten, and the black kitten is either the boy kitten or his sister Nataka, which is native Indian for "bear growling as people pass by". We choose that name since she was the first to growl when she was eating. One time Kaian had left a block of cheese on the floor and Nataka found it and was growling away. We were trying to figure out why we were hearing her growl and when we saw we had a nice laugh. There were no other cats in sight, she was just letting it be heard that was her block of cheese. It was too cute.


Then the other little girl, which Dainen decided to name Whiskers, loves to chase her shadow. Her in action:

Another Litter

Well our same cat that had the 5 kittens recently has had another batch Sunday October 2. We don?t believe it was any of our own male cats that is the father of the new litter. She had four male orange tabby kittens. Sunday as we were getting ready for our meeting I noticed her in the back room under the open cabinets. I said to her, "Now girl don't even think about having your babies in there." And then we hear a tiny mew. Sure enough she had already given birth to all 4 of her kittens. So we moved them into a large box and set them off in our room. Now we have to worry about getting Natalya fixed, so we don?t have a cat farm!

Orphaned Kittens

Well at the age of 2 weeks, the kittens have been orphaned. We dont know what happened to Natalya thier mother, but Saturday in the wee hours she woke Brian up by vomiting all over my freshly mopped floor in the kitchen. He got up and let her out. That was the last time she was seen. So we have been bottle feeding the little things every since.
