COT - July 21, 2009 - Kittens

Felicia gave Birth last Friday.
It startet around midnight.
Number one arrived around 2 am.
She struggeled for around 17 hours.
This time you can click on each photo to enlarge)

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.
Healthy. Great.
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.

I understand about the cat sitting when you go on vacation. We did the same last year when we went on the bay cruise. You have to take care of your babies and you are doing that very nicely.

We'll await pictures when you return from vacation. It will be great to see how much they have grown.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and Anna. :)

Timing is everything...lol! Gee, dear Felecia had a very long labor, that had to be very hard on her....The Kittens are adorable Tor and I know how proud you must be...Finally, some little ones. Too bad you have to go on vacation right at this time. Hope the moving of the "family" won't be too upsetting to Felicia....

Poor Felicia, she certainly took a long time to deliver those kitties. Still, at least only one died. The surviving ones look very pretty and it'll be lovely to see them grow.

Enjoy your vacation and I hope the cats and kitties enjoy theirs, too.

Those kittens are SO adorable! I think it's amazing to see the growth after so short a time.

Esos gatitos son adorables, son hermosos!! Es hermoso verlos nacer y ver como van creciendo!!
Mis gatos estan todos adentro de la casa, ninguno quiere salir por el frio! Tenemos una ola de lo que aca llamamos "frio del polo", son dias de mucho mucho frio, como si estuvieramos en el polo sur, hoy a la tarde tuvimos temperaturas bajo cero grado centigrado, y en algunas partes del pais cayo nieve, incluso en algunas partes de Buenos Aires, donde no suele nevar seguido (una vez cada 10 años, aunque ultimamente al menos una vez al año sucede). Ademas, lluvia y mucho viento! Esta para quedarse en casa, sobre todo para mi que prefiero el verano!

Godt å se den lille lykkelige familien, og det høres ut som en fornuftig løsning du har valgt mht å la Sylvi passe mor og barn mens dere er på ferie.
God koz til dem alle fra oss.. og en god-ferie-klem til dere også!

Congratulations x 4! How fun to see them grow. But you'll miss their first time now, better Sylvi takes photos to show you then!

Bon voyage, see you later :-D
