Sorry for the butthead question, but I wasnt around when Snowy first was pregnant. Was this an accidental mating? Whats her story? I'd love to know!
Well it wasn't quite an accident. I did want her to have kittens but not just yet. She got out ( she is normally an indoor cat) and came back apparantly pregnant. So i knew the dates and everything. Anyway, i got a bit suss when she started eating like a horse and then she got fat. Thats when i joined here, i needed all the help i could get as it was my first time. Nearer the time i prepared nesting boxes and places for the kittens once they were born. And thats it really. Me and my daughter were both really excited about throughout the pregnancy and adore the little kittens.
They are all doing great. Snowy is brilliant with them and they are nursing from her without any problems. I will let you in to a secret, not told anyone else, but i cried with joy when i saw her with her babies. Snowy looked up at me as if to say 'look what i done' with a worried and scared look on her face. I cried buckets and gave her a hug.
So thats the story. Just got to think of names now. We are going to keep the ginger one.
