Starry Night gave birth to four beautiful kittens early this morning! Mom is doing well and the kittens have shown the usual affinity for nursing and sleeping.
Diggy, the father, was too busy passing out catnip cigars to comment.
All of these kittens are reserved.
Update: We lost the smallest kitten two days later. We knew that it was dicey for him/her given his size relative to the others, but the first day he /she was nursing and taking supplemental feedings well. The next day, not so much.
Meanwhile, Starry decided that the net was not to her liking and kept moving the kittens to the bed or into the corner. In the interest of sleep they’ve been moved to the kitten room next door. Starry still insisted on moving them out of the nest, but at least they’re not wedged into a tiny space between the wall and the nightstand!
