Pictures of Kittens especially newborn ones so I have some on my page for you all , enjoy grin

Have you any idea whether they're male or female yet crazy? (Not suggesting that you interrupt bonding between Mum and kits but you might already have noticed.)


crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 11:47:48

I tried to look but I haven't a clue confused

crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 11:50:39

Quick question cozie while I have your attention .
Will she have finished having them as she is still a bit restless

cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 11:51:30


Leave it for a few days then. It's more important that they stay peaceful and eating from/bonding with Mum at the moment.

They're gorgeous anyway.


cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 11:52:15

When did she have the last one?

Wheresmycaffeinedrip Fri 03-May-13 11:52:23

Aw soooooo cute envy

cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 11:54:44

PS - and does she appear to be straining at all?

crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 11:57:16

About 5 , she doesn't seem to be straining but her belly is going up & down quite fast & she purrs outloud every so often
sorry if I seem dumb sad

cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 12:06:23

Goodness, you don't sound dumb at all.

I've never had a pregnant cat who had problems but I know that babies can sometimes appear some time after all the others - and also that 3 is a relatively small litter.

I confess, given that she's still restless and is having what might be contractions (?), I'd be thinking about a kitten still inside or an undelivered placenta.

Maybe another poster could comment.

Are you around all day today to keep an eye on her?

cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 12:08:23

PS - have you already got a local vet you can go to or call if needs be? (Just covering all bases here.)

crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 12:12:47

I have to nip out for an hour (really no choice) but I think I'm gonna ring the vets when I get back as don't want anything bad to happen , thanks for your help x

cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 15:33:14

Any news, crazy?

crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 15:51:25

The vet said to leave her til tomorrow as she has settled down now , thanks for asking smile

cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 15:55:55

Ah - if she's settled down, that's fine.


cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 20:31:52

How are Mum and the kits doing this evening?


crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 21:55:59

They are doing really well moving about & very vocal , If she leaves them she shouts one of my other cats to come watch them , its ridiculously cute grin

cozietoesie Fri 03-May-13 22:11:08

Good. With only three of them, I'm guessing they're having no trouble finding a teat each ? You're going to end up with three very fat little puggies!


crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 22:32:29

They are all fighting over the same teat until one manages to get on & then they move on lol

Oh the cuteness! The cuteness!

Have never seen newborn kittens IRL & photos like this make me want to! Tiniest Kittens I've ever seen were those belonging to the cat of the local shop where my family were on holiday in Greece when I was 10. ShopCat gave birth a week or two before we arrived & I was allowed to see & stroke the kittens when I went to buy rolls for breakfast each morning. The shopkeeper was quite keen for us to take a kitten (or two) back to the UK with us but even if they'd not been quite so tiny the idea of a cat spending the first 6 months of its New Life in Quarantine too awful for us to consider adopting. (And then a few weeks after we got home Mummy died & the cat question got shelved. Another reason for me to be all bitter about her sudden-unexpected death...)

Babies do not make me in the least bit broody but kittens make me wish I had little kittens to look after. But I would want to keep them all FOREVER...

<flails some more over the Cute>

crazydrunkevilhamster Fri 03-May-13 23:51:37

grin I'm trying not to fall in love with them as I'd be a crazy cat lady envy

ZebraOwl Sat 04-May-13 00:36:36

Are you going to rehome them yourself or will an animal charity be helping you do so? If the former, could you sort out matching up people & kittens so that you feel that you are just caring for these other people's kittens for them until they're ready to move out?

crazydrunkevilhamster Sat 04-May-13 00:40:45

My mum is having one & so is my older sister & I get to keep one grin
I'm rehoming them with family because I know they will be looked after & plus I get to have lots of cuddles still

ZebraOwl Sat 04-May-13 00:47:18

Very wise <nods>... Sounds as though it'll not be a disaster if you get attached to the kittens if you're keeping one & the other two are going to family as you can have visiting rights, no?

crazydrunkevilhamster Sat 04-May-13 01:07:35

Yes I still have visiting rights it was part of the agreement grin
