Pixel moves her kittens

Pixel moved her kittens out of nest, so it was a good opportunity to update the pictures of her kittens!  Their eyes are open and the six of them are doing well (the seventh kitten faded and passed away a few days after birth, unfortunately). While there is nothing routine about a litter of kittens, …

Starry Night’s kittens make a good impression

Starry Night’s kittens are getting big and are very, very cute (though we may be a bit biased). Since Starry Night is named after a post-Impressionist painting, we thought that this litter could be named after post-Impressionist artists. After a little googling we had some names! All of these kittens are reserved.

Meanwhile…

The last of Lola’s kittens went to their forever home today so the main living area of our house feels a little quiet. That will change this week when Queen Sara Saturday’s kittens get their first vaccinations and can emerge from their private room to join the rest of the cattery. In the meantime, they …

Pixel makes it look easy

Pixel gave birth to seven lovely kittens last night over the course of three hours. She was a little stressed out but knew exactly what to do and pumped out a kittens at a mostly regular pace. They were popping out every 15-30 minutes. The 6th took about 50 minutes, just long enough for us …

Spuds

Starry Night’s kittens have firmly entered what we call the “potato stage.” They are just little, plump potatoes! They are all growing fast and becoming more active. Starry did not want to keep them in the nest but so far they haven’t tried to venture beyond the fleece and the heating pad underneath. All of …

Wilson is available!

Update: Wilson has been reserved! Wilson is available! He had been reserved by someone who really wanted a black-and-white kitten but something about another kitten really spoke to them. As we like to say, “The kitten picks you.” Because of his little goatee we have lots of nicknames for him like , “Jazz Man” and …

True Royalty

Since Queen Sara Saturday is royalty, we decided that her first litter should stick with that theme.  These kids are all doing very well and have easily transitioned to solid food. Also very important: They learned to use the litter box with a minimal period of “thinking outside the box.” Maybe it’s their refined royal …

That was quick

Starry Night gave birth to five beautiful kittens starting on Thursday, October 3rd at 11:37PM and finishing  and hour later at 12:37AM on Friday.  The delivery went very smoothly and all of the kittens are doing great.

Faster than a speeding uterus

Queen Sara Saturday gave birth to four beautiful kittens in about an hour this afternoon. That might be a new record for one of our cats! Her great grandmother, Nutmeg, earned the nickname “Machine-gun Megs” for her ability to pop out kittens quickly during delivery, so it must run in the family. Sara and her …
