Sorry, but that is all I know at the moment! It is 5 am here and it all started about an hour ago...she is in her box with her back to me, so while I hear kitten voices I can't tell you how many I hear! Will post an update in a bit!

I will definitely be taking a nap today...lol!

I think it is #6 that just got born...I don't think she is done yet either! Jeez...they are already crawling around in there! There goes my carpet too! Dutchess had them in the box like a good kitty, but not on the sheets! Blood etc. is seeping through the cardboard! UGH! This house is brand new and so is the carpet, so if you know anything that will work with a minimum upset to mom and babies, please let me know!

we are done...total of 6. Poor mom is so bloody and shaky. Do you all think it is okay to transfer to a clean box? Everybody is so ewwwy....lol! So is the box! All 6 were feeding, or attempting to at last check, so we should be okay. As for moving, I have rubber gloves so that should be okay right?

3 hours since the first one was born. So far all are crawling around all over mom and feeding...hopefully feeding. As of last night there was no milk, but they are there and making suckling noises so I assume they are feeding. Poor mommy, you should see her...she has hardly any white fur at the moment, she really needs to clean up, but she is exhausted! Will take some pictures after full daylight, that way the flash won't seem as harsh to them. I will be honest though, I think they are overdue. Something about their faces tells me they should have been born a week or so ago. Or, maybe that is just the natural facial swelling from birth...I don't know.

Poor baby she looks so beat.. Congrats Grandma

Did you layer the sheets or is it just the one? If you did layer, just take the top few off and leave her alone for a while. If you didn't try changing sheets. I'd rather you didn't move the kittens around too much, it may cause momma to move the kittens herself!

So happy to log on this morning and see that she had her kittens. Congratulations!

I missed all of this. I am so upset now She had 6 woohoo I was correct. She looks to be a good mommy. Dutchess try to make the pictures bigger. If not that is ok. Congrads on being a new grandma and give mom and babies loves from me and my crew

CONGRADULATIONS!!! 6 wow thats great hope mum and babies are doing fine.

WELL DONE pics are great too

I wouldn't use any chemicals on the carpet near the kittens at this stage. I do know that Woolite makes some great spot cleaners that take out old blood like nothing else. Also at the pet store there is this stuff called Simple Solution has not failed to remove anything for me.

Jen if you click on the pics you can see them bigger!!
How are you feeling today hun?

Dutchess looks absolutely wasted!! After all her hard work she will have a good rest and then clean up....Fudge has a lot of white on her too, and she cleaned it all off within a couple of hours!
Wouldn't move them just yet, let her rest first and maybe if she comes out for some food or water you could try and transfer them into the clean box?

Congratulations to Duchess! That is going to be a handful for her and for you too!
post #29 of 62
Oh, congrats!!!! Duchess looks so worn out in those pictures, poor little momma. What stress! Hope she gets a good nap in today!

As far as your carpet goes, it's totally fine. What you'll need to do NOW, while the stains are still fresh, is take a few ice cubes, and rub them into the stain, and then BLOT BLOT, and BLOT some more with a dry towel! This will help the stain come out when you finally can use some chemicals...it's always bet to pre-treat blood stains with COLD water first!

What lovely babies, and one tired looking momma!
