Sorry for not posting lately, my cat gave birth!
It’s a long story. Last year, my husband and I adopted a cat from someone off of the dreaded Craigslist. She was and still is, a beautiful split face Torbie or a Tortoiseshell Tabby. Anywho, the woman told me she had been spayed and had her first set of shots. She had always tried to run out the front door or the sliding door to the (horribly) screened in patio. After we had Lydia, we let both of our cats, Emma and Killian come in and out of the house as they pleased.
24 days ago, I found Emma laying upstairs by the mailboxes for our apartment looking fat. I immediately brought her inside, and having had a pregnant cat when I was younger, I knew she was pregnant. So I trapped her inside only letting her out every now and again. She would only go back upstairs, so I never had to worry about not being able to find her.
Last night, after almost a month of waiting and telling her to have them before Lydia turns 4 months, she started having kittens around 4:30pm. I am so excited to be able to take Lydia’s four month pictures with some baby kittens. So far, Emma has had 6, unfortunately one passed; now we have 1 black and white, one all black, and 3 orange/tan kittens. I think she may have one or two more waiting to make their appearance, but we’ll see. The kittens will be ready for their new homes on or a few days before September 27th.
For now, I hope you all enjoy this picture of kittens!
