Pics of the Queen and Kids

Hi all,

Pics of the 5 pound queen and her kittens. The queen, whom we rescued, is living at my brother's house with his other 4 cats. We are taking the two kittens, for our first feline experience. Please keep in mind that the Queen, despite looking huge, is only 5 pounds.

Ok, here is the story.

As I mentioned, we had a dog for 14 years. Like most of you, we spoiled the heck out of her and blurred the line between pet and child. When she died, it took us a while to even consider another one. When we both felt we were ready, and made it known to members of out family (siblings mostly) my brother and sister-in-law started to talk to us about considering cats. They were dog people as well, but made the decision a few years ago to try cats, as they (correctly) believed cats are more independent and better fit into their work schedule. Needless to say, with 14 years of dog history, we were not convinced.

At about the same time, this little white cat started coming near the house. Over a period of time, she came closer and closer but did not allow us within 5 feet of her. Against my wife’s wishes, I started to feed her and give her water everyday. She really gobbled the food, but we could not catch her.

On July 4th, my brother and SIL traveled the 250 miles to our house and they both fell in love with the cat when they saw her. A neighbor suggested we try an animal cage with and place some tuna in it. We did, but nothing happened. At the end of the day, my brother drove home, his parting words were, “if you catch the thing, we will take her (they have 4 cats already)â€.

A few hours after he left, she sprung the trap and we got her! So, at 10pm, we started the 5 hour drive to Chicago. Getting her out of the cage at his house was a challenge, as she clawed and bit everyone in site. She was taken to the vet the next day and found to be very healthy, and PREGNANT.

My wife and I talked it over and felt this whole thing was a sign from our late dog that we should have a pet again, but it should not be another dog!

To wrap up the story, Mother and kittens are doing great and we expect to pick the kittens up in about 2-3 weeks.

We have named them Mimi and Horowitz. That is a story in itself, but we wanted to somehow name them after my brother in thanks for helping save the Mother. Those two names sound awfully like two words he could not pronounce when growing up, and we just told him to say “Mimi†and “Horowitz†as both are close enough to what he was trying to say.

I am trying to follow directions to get the pics in here, and I must be a little slow. I got the links to appear, but what am I doing wrong that the pics do not appear without you having to click on the link?

It's all in how you formats the links. if the link is an image, like these, you need to put an without the "." around the link for them to show as pictures. If you quote a post that has pictures in it, and look at the actual text while making your reply, you'll see the pictures are just links with the IMGs around them.

Kap, those are amazing, moving photographs. I'm glad this little girl is off the streets and her babies have their forever homes at such a young age.


















If you quote my post here, and take a look at it when you're in the "Reply to thread" mode... you'll see what I mean.

Thanks! I will try it with new pics.

I just heard from my brother that Mimi is a toe biter, Horowitz runs full speed from one room to the next, stop suddenly, and then walks back, and they both are starting to climb the cat trees.
