I had my babies very early today, July 11th, between the hours of 2:00am and 3:30am. I had a lot of babies! I think mom is in shock. Me, I'm just tired, but being a good mother.
Mom had thought I had all my kittens and had gone to send out notices to a few of her friends. When she got back, she was like "What the heck?", but she jumped into action. I was too exhausted to do a good job of cleaning the last two, so mom cut the cords and removed the afterbirth for me. She then pulled the first bunch to be born about a foot away and kept them warm to give the last 2 a chance to eat their first meal. After about 15 to 20 minutes I had all my babies with me and it's been a feeding frenzy ever since. So far, so good.
So how many kittens did I have? Well, take a look at my main photo and count them! The first 5 with the correct answer will get 10 zealies each. Please only one answer per family. Thanks!
Here's a little bigger picture for you to look at. Count the tails but not mine!

A lot has happened in the recent months. My 2 handsome blue point boys found wonderful new homes. Ike left May 1st for his new home in southwest Ohio. Mom saw him at a cat show 2 weeks ago. She said he was looking very good and very happy.
Andrew took a trip with me to see his dad, Sorn, in early May. I stayed with Sorn and Andrew went home with mom. He then took a plane trip from Cleveland to Atlanta on May 13th. He is now living the high life in Alabama at a horse farm. He rides around the farm on a golf cart and gets to take a few road trips too. His new mom is also showing him so maybe our paths will cross again someday.
As for me, Sorn and I are expecting again any day now. This time I'm having more than 2 kittens as I am much bigger than what I was with Andrew and Ike. I'm taking life easy now, but mom is turning into a nervous wreck! I did get her to relax the other evening. She was sitting on the sofa with her feet up. I came and stretched out on her lap. Mom could feel my kittens moving on her legs. Made her smile then giggle and I got a good ear and chin rub from mom.
I'll let you know about my new babies when they arrive! Later!

I hope you have been checking out the pictures of my sons as they grow up. Tomorrow they will be 6 weeks old. They are turning into excellent climbers. Not so good at getting down yet, but give them time. I'm sure they will figure that out!
A couple of weeks ago, Samoa named Andrew and Ike as her Dreamboats-in-Training. They were too young then to understand what all the fuss was about. I am sure it won't take them long to know now!
Mom has been taking some video of them playing, but she hasn't found an editor that she likes yet. As soon as she does, I'll have her patch something together. In the meantime, Mom caught a bit of me and her talking about where my boys were today. So my first video starring my sons is now up on my page. Naptime Interrupted is the title and we would like to heard what you think about it! Thanks!
