Buddies

Good news and bad news.  The good news is that the two boys from Starry and Diggy’s litter are thriving. The picture doesn’t do them justice — they are porkers! They love to snuggle up together so we thought we could call them buddies — Buddy Hackett and Buddy Holly, in this case. The bad …

It’s a feminine day in the neighborhood

Nikki and Buster’s kids (the Mister Rogers litter) all turned out to be girls! Last year Buster sired boys by a wide margin, so I guess this evens things out a bit. On the downside, we didn’t get to name a kitten Mister McFeely. On the other hand, any day that you can name a …

Good morning, kittens!

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 …

Diggy will be a daddy!

Escape!

We opened up the nest last week so Nikki’s kittens could start to stretch their legs. Now, normally at this age their a little tentative about leaving their safe space, but not this bunch! Within a minute they were out and roaming the room, much to Nikki’s bemusement. The funniest thing is that as the …

Walk like an Egyptian

Jackie’s kittens are out of the nest and posing for pictures! We decided to name them after Egyptian Pharaohs and they’re ready to take over the world! All of these kittens are reserved.

Meanwhile, in the room next door…

Jackie’s kittens have just woken up from a nap. They are in what is technically called the “pudgemuffin phase.”

Speedy Delivery

Nikki gave birth to eight beautiful kittens in a little less than two hours this afternoon! Her grandmother, Nutmeg also delivered litters so quickly that we nicknamed her “Machine Gun Megs.” Nikki is earning a nickname of her own. Nanosecond Nikki? All of these kittens are reserved. Update: Unfortunately, one of the kittens passed away …

Eight is enough

Well, now we know why Nikki is as big as a house. She’s got eight kittens inside of her! The dad, Buster, was quite proud of himself until we told him about the child support payments.
