All together now…. Awwwwww

Tootie give birth two three lovely little kittens on Monday night. This is her first litter and she is turning out to be a great mother.  She’s very protective and looks very contented when she’s feeding them. It’s already apparent that the little ones have inherited the snuggling gene…

The Inside Story

We took Patootie down to the vet today to get her pre-delivery x-ray.  We do this as a precaution so we know how many kittens to expect on the Big Day. It looks like we’re expecting five! (The big dark thing at the top is poop, not a kitten). Seven days to go…

I’m full of kittens

I am NOT overweight.  I did NOT swallow a basketball.  I am NOT gassy.  Well, okay, maybe a little gassy.  But that’s NOT why I look like this. I’m full of kittens!

This is Pippi, one of the girls from the Nutmeg-Syrano litter. She has joined the family as one of our breeding females (when she’s old enough and we’ve given her that talk about the birds and the bees, the sires and the dams, etc.). In the meantime, we get to enjoy the kitten cuteness. She’s …

Well-read Kittens

We’re just hanging out here thinking about what book to read next. Nothing to see here, move along! Are they gone yet? Okay, you keep a lookout while I explore back here…

I love kittens that make me look like a good photographer

She was just sitting there looking at me. She tilted her head. I whipped out the Blackberry and got a few pictures just in time. Success!

Seven Names for Seven Kittens

Well we finally gave temporary names to the kittens. Since there are seven of them we named them after the seven dwarves (how original, eh)? One thing you should know, though.  Sneezy doesn’t actually sneeze, Grumpy isn’t actually grumpy, Doc doesn’t actually have a doctorate, and so on.  Well, okay, Grumpy looks a little grumpy …

Out of the nest… maybe

We opened the door to the nest today so the kittens could stretch their wobbly little legs. They’re maybe a little tentative expanding their horizons beyond the next and into the kitten room. One brave little one decided to take the plunge. Or maybe Mom has other ideas…

Kittens in motion tend to stay in motion

Okay, I tried taking some fresh kitten pictures tonight.  I managed to get this one little lineup shot and then they all started to explore the bed.  Sweet freedom away from Nutmeg’s nest was too tempting and they started stretching their legs and making mad dashes for the edge. Eeep! That’s my long way of …

The Magnificent Seven

Here is the Nutmeg-Syrano litter in all their squirmy glory. Despite appearances to the contrary, they were pretty active while we took pictures, so I can’t say for sure if the pictures below represent seven different kittens or not. Probably not… Some were more cooperative than others. Just starting to open their eyes! I am …
