Feets first. We helped Felicia. But in vain.
Dead. Wrong way out. Besides too large for a first time Birth.
No Tail. You See?
Summary before more photos:
At 4 am #2 arrived.
At 4:30 am #3 arrived
Papa went to bed.
Her is # 2 and 3. The Black one is #2.
At 8.00 am # 4 arrived.
Proud mama Felicia .
Here you see the 3 living when papa wake up.
Mama Felicia was very hungry and was away eating for a short while.
At 4:45 pm # 5 arrived. Papa did not want to disturb the new Cat Family, so this is what he was allowed to publish.
Result: 4 living kittens. They seems to be very healty.
I would have liked to post more from this very special event.
You see, we have waited many years tho give Felicia and Rosa the opportunity
to have kittens. Last year was in vain.
This year, Felicia succeeded. We are very happy she did.
Rosa still struggles.
Besides, we are going on Vacation.
So what to do?
Planning is one side of the challenge.
The other is what's best for the Cats.
The result will be:
Felicia and her 4 kittens will stay with Sylvi - indoor. While we are away.
Rosa and Stompa (Sylvi's Cat) will stay in the Summerhouse
with Cat-sitters, who will live here, when we are on Vacation. Here they are Tuesday Evening.
We think this is the best and safest result for both the Cats and people.
I hope you, my dear reader, understand, this situation has caused us
some logistic challenges. When talking about the Cats.
Our Garden, travel logistics, and my work, my daughter's pregancy, well,
you might understand papa have had not much time to post or comment.
Felicia and her 4 Kittens will be transported from our Summerhome
on Wednesday to Sylvi.
While we are on Vacation: No Photos of the Kittens. Sorry.
(May be I will take and post some photos from the Move of Felicia and her Kittens from Summer Home to Sylvi, during our Vacation).
More Cats here at Gattinas.
