Future Mothers of Kittens

We’d like to introduce you to two lovely ladies who we expect will produce some beautiful kittens. First up is Darling Nikki, from our Prince litter. She is replacing her mother, Ashley, who is retiring. She definitely inherited Ashley’s playful personality, as well as her tendency to wave her paws at far-away things, as if …

Yin and Yang

Fiona’s kittens are growing fast! This morning when we saw them laying together like this we just had to naame them Yin and Yang. I think this is the earliest we’ve ever named a litter. Okay, it’s not literally a Yin and Yang symbol, since they aren’t nose to tail. Technically they’re reverse spooning, but …

That was easy

Fiona gave birth to two kittens yesterday afternoon, about fifteen minutes apart. We were afraid that with a small litter they get too big to squeeze out of the opening without trouble, but Fiona popped them out like a pro. They are both eating like champs and are very squeaky when mom leaves the nest. …

Sometimes it’s easy

Usually when we look at the x-ray of an expectant mother it’s a challenge to figure out exactly how many kittens to expect. You try to count the skulls or the spines, but with a bunch of kittens crammed in there it’s hard to be absolutely sure. But sometimes you look at an x-ray and …

Smart kittens

Jackie Blue’s kittens took to solid food quickly and mastered the litter box in record time. These are some very smart kittens! So, we decided to name them after inventors and scientists. Here they are! All of these kittens are reserved.

It’s always lunch time

Jackie Blue’s kittens are growing nicely, no doubt due to their well-developed appetites. When do they eat? Pretty much whenever they want. Jackie will jump out of the nest and hang out with us, but after a while she’ll hear a chorus of “meeps!” and she’s back with the kittens. I imagine that “meep” translates to …

Three points for Gryffindor

We decided to name Pippi’s kittens after characters in Harry Potter because someone picked up their kitten recently and was naming their kitten based on that. Why didn’t we think of that? All of these kittens are reserved. And yes, we are having a hard time telling Harry and Ron apart. Today Harry is a …

Jelia Jamb is available (again)

Update: Jelia has found a new home and is no longer available! Well, we thought Jelia was spoken for, but the folks who said they wanted her seem to have fallen off the end of the Earth. That means she’s available again! Jelia is a fun girl who likes romantic dinners, sunset walks on the beach, …

Hello… world…

Jackie gave birth to five beautiful kittens on Friday night! Also, Saturday morning, technically. She takes about an hour between kittens, just long enough to make you worry that something might be wrong… But, oh, wait, she’s pushing again and here’s another one! All of the kittens are doing well and are very, very noisy. …

Meanwhile, in a nearby uterus

Jackie is due to give birth in about a week, and the X-ray reveals five (maybe six) little kitten skeletons in there. Onyx is the lucky dad. He is getting ready to pass out the catnip cigars, though I think he couldn’t help but “test one out” for “quality control.”
