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 …

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 …

In which we get to show a little nipple

The nipple doesn’t lie! Darling Nikki and Buster had a romantic interlude a couple of weeks ago and her nipples are a lovely pink, which means she is pregnant. She’s also showing other signs (she’s extra-lovey, she’s starting lay down with her belly off to the side) so we’er ready to start taking kitten applications …

Might as well face it, he’s addicted to laps

Update: Buddy Holly has been reserved! Buddy Holly is available! The person who reserved Buddy Holly asked if they could wait for a kitten from a litter next year because of new medical issues with their current pet. It just wasn’t the right time to take on a new fur baby. While we have absolutely …

Come and knock on our door…

Update: Chrissy decided that he’s a boy! We’re very supportive of his gender choice, whatever it may be. Okay, we might have mis-identified his gender a few weeks ago, but in our defense his testicles haven’t descended yet so it’s easy to get it wrong! Lola’s kittens are getting bigger every day! One week they …

Chunkers

They're big!

Meanwhile in the room just off the bedroom (which we call the Kitten Room) Lola’s kids are getting big and chunky. Lola is eating a lot and it looks like it’s all going directly into the kittens! At only a week old all they do is nurse, sleep, and grow, but boy are they growing!

First delivery

Update 1/20/19: Well, we finally  got the results back from the New Hampshire Lab  (they were really backed up over the holidays).  The kittens died from sepsis resulting from an infection. The lab’s theory is that Tribble’s uterus opened early, allowing something in and they were infected in the womb. The good news is that …
