Hey Little Fuzzy Kittens,
Today is your first day here on Earth. I hope you like it! I hope you like me... I will do my best to help Measle care for you. I will do my best to keep Mowgli off of you. He is very curious. I will buy you toys and delicious food! I will give you snuggles and kisses, and try my very best to find you good homes!
I never officially announced Measle was expecting. I was planning on it, I just figured she wasn't getting fat enough for pregnancy pictures. A few days ago I thought about when she was supposed to have her babies.. It seems as if she has been pregnant for so long! I figured she would have them on Tuesday.
It all started with Mowgli being a monster and trying to play rough with her. She seemed extra annoyed. I decided to put her in our big closet. (Trust me, it's huge) So I put her in there with her litter box, her food and water and a box full of towels. Just in case.
Right before bed we started to hear some tiny kitty voices.
I went in to see two tiny kitties mewing with their mom. How darling.
Then I noticed one little guy on the other side of the closet. All alone.
I scooped him up, he was ice cold. I looked around and saw that he had fallen into the water dish! While the other kittens had been nursing this little one was freezing to death! I quickly became bossy and told Taylor to get me a bottle of warm water, throw a towel in the dryer and get me a warm rag. I cleaned the little guy up and did my best to warm him. He wasn't moving very much and I was very scared for him.
Measle wouldn't feed him, she kept pushing him away. He couldn't eat! I sat with him until 4:30 in the morning trying to keep him warm, trying to convince Measle that he was indeed alive and hungry. Finally he began to eat. Measle started snuggling him. I went to bed feeling hopeful.
I woke up several times and checked on my new little friend to make sure he was warm and eating.
They are all doing good.
This is the "Get out. I jut gave birth, I am breast feeding. Get that camera out of here." face
This is the kitten's daddy. Aint he a charmer?
Oh how I love little furry creatures. I just might keep the little guy who almost didn't make it. I have a soft spot for the underdogs...er undercats?
