Update - no more babies, no more labour. I went to the vet earlier than planned as I was getting a little concerned with the no show of more kittens...Vet did a palpitation examination and said she couldnt feel anything else. So its just two of them.
Vet suggested that one reason why I thought there were more is because she is a very long haired cat, she looks a lot bigger than she actually is
(I joked (but meant it quite seriously) 'no.. one reason I thought there were more is because last week you said you could feel a fair few'. She replied without ultrasounds, determining number of kittens just from feel is not a clear science
. Ah well, Im just happy the kittens and Olivia are safe and well.
So Olivia has had us fooled as to due dates and numbers lol.
I'll take some pics of the little ones now. My hubby has made excuses to leave work early so he can come home and see the kittens. Im letting him name them because he said if there are just 2, WE ARE KEEPING BOTH OF THEM!
PROBLEM: I did have a kitten request list comprising of various family members...I feel bad for getting people's hopes up. My mum, in all honesty, will be ok and look for her persian kitten from the right breeder. Its my sister that will be a bit disappointed. If she is, then I'll part with one of these (
) or hopefully convince her to get a kitten from a rescue place. Im telling myself that this is all small fry and just to be happy Olivia and the kittens are safe and well.
I'll post pics in a sec
