Our female cat just had her kittens last week! They are less than a week old now. Today, thanks to a very sunny afternoon and a new flash toy on the camera that bounces the light indirectly, I was able to snap a few photos to share.
Teaspoon did in fact start the labor in the middle of our bed. What ever happened to warm, protected, dark places? Then, after number two she disappeared. I completely freaked out. The door had been shut, so where could she have gone?! Then, it dawned on me. Of course. She was in the most perfect spot possible, and the one spot Jon and I had never even thought about, even though she tends to crawl int there for a nap from time to time.
They are only a few days old, so their eyes are not open and they haven’t had any bodily functions. Lord help us when they start.
I promise she is only a tired Mama, and not trying to eat his head. They are absolutely identical, although there is a clear runt of the litter, who squeals endlessly and is clumsy. He can never find the nipple and tends to wander off from the other three, all the while squealing. He (She?) is the only one with a name so far.
