Five little kittens, all in a row

Nikki and Buster’s kittens are all doing well. They are getting plump and are very mobile, sometimes wandering away from mama and the other kittens (within the confines of the nest, of course). This morning we caught them in a moment of sibling togetherness and had to share. All of these kittens are reserved.

Wakey wakey

Nikki gave birth to five plump kittens this morning, starting around 3:00AM (of course). Delivery took about an hour, with a MTBK (Mean Time Between Kittens) of ten minutes. Her great-grandmother, Nutmeg, was also known for popping out kittens quickly, earning the nickname “Machine-Gun Megs.” The kittens are hungry and squirmy, and Nikki is taking …

Good hearts

We took Nikki, Frida, Pixel, and Sara to the cardiologist for their annual cardiac ultrasounds and all of them were cleared for breeding. This was their first time (except for Nikki, was her third) but they all tolerated it like champs! Sara, in particular, has been very eager to go on a date with Max …

Big belleh full of kittens

When Nikki lies down and plops her belly out to the side, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that she’s definitely pregnant. Shes due in a few weeks and we’ll get an x-ray taken soon so we know how many kittens to expect. Nikki will be very happy to give birth, if only …

Goodbye, Fargo

Fargo passed away today at the age of fourteen. He and his brother Flash (who passed last year) were our first show cats and the founding fathers of our cattery. We got Fargo as a pet but decided to try showing him on a whim. He enjoyed it so much and did so well (a …
