We've got kittens!

Great excitement for the kids! I went home last night and while I was relaxing and drinking a cup of coffee my 2 yo pregnant cat, Kittykie, started purring and mewing and acting very affectionate towards me. I realised that she was in labour and took her to the bedroom where I had previously prepared a box for her. She decided to have the kittens on the towel shelf and I ended up clearing off that shelf and putting the box there. After a very short time, out popped a ginger kit and after she cleaned up that one out came an unusually coloured little one who seems to be white with a dark 'saddle'. Shortly thereafter she gave birth to a plain grey and lastly another ginger who was quite a lot smaller than the first. All kittens were quite small as she is also a small cat but quite strong. I must say that out of 3 cats which I have had giving birth over the years as well as 2 dogs giving birth to puppies I have never lost a kitten or puppy or had any stillborn.
Anyway, this morning I heard whining and scrabbling coming from the bedroom and when I went to investigate there was my dog Piglet (cross Maltese/Dachshund) on the shelf below the kittens. He had scrabbled out a whole lot of kids books and puzzles in his quest to get to the kittens. I think he was just inquisitive as he likes cats and had heard them crying but I didn't give him a chance to explain and now he has been banished outside.
I will post photos later as Kittykie was giving Dael the evil eye last night when he was attempting to take photos of the babies with his cellphone camera!


  1. very cool...I Love Cats. I wonder why they're all different colors.

    I guess I'm pretty happy that my kids are the same color as me.

  2. Obviously, I love cats too. Sweet.
