Ziggy's Babies 3 weeks update and pictures!!!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
My camera is sorted so I've gone mad on the pictures, I'm gutted that I haven't been able to take any for 2 weeks!!!

First up is my sweet Tortie and white Pixie!! She is the smallest Kitten. Ziggy is a very small cat and their daddy is TWICE the size of her!! I think the others take after daddy!!




Isn't she cute.

Next is Diego, my big shy Orange and white boy. I think he's going to be a marbel effect tabby.




The other two were asleep so I'll post some pictures of them later

Hope you like them

Wow - Pix has VERY unusual markings! She would do well in a HHP cat show BTW she's not a tortie/white. She's either a brown patched tabby or silver patched tabby - the markings in the picture look like silver tabby to me

I think she's actually a Torbie like her mum. Ziggy has a tortie body and tabby legs. I think Pixie will turn out the same as her back had no tabby at all. It's just easier to say tortie as most people I know outside of TCS don't know what a Torbie is.

I fell in love with Pixie as soon as she was born. Links is also a real cutie but I can't get any good pictures of him and Lola at the moment, it's too dark so they will have to wait til tomorrow.

I'm keeping Links for definate, but have always wanted to keep Pixie but my SO said not 2, sooooo........

......Now that my partner and I have split, I can keep both!!! (Every Cloud has a Silver Lining)

Diego is a bit of an odd-ball. He always hides, and hes really massive and clumsy. It's cute the way he'll stare at you for about 15mins until theres a loud noise - then he'll hide again. His face is flatter than the others as well. I'll have to wait until he's a bit older to work out if he's got the same dad... Ziggy you slut.

Pixie reminds me of the foster kitten I bottle earlier this spring, Jade! Be careful, if she grows up like Jade did, she'll be trouble!

Hi, They are gorgeous, Pixie is very unusual, they both look like real sweeties, can't wait for pics of the other 2!

Torbie and Patched Tabby is the same thing. IMO its better to use "Patched Tabby (with the color - brown, silver, blue) rather then TorBie cause its too close to TorTie

So she is a Silver or Brown Patched Tabby

So, to make sure I'm clear, she's be a torbie/patched tabby because of the tabby markings? And if she had NO tabby markings she's be a tortie w/ white?

Torbie is Tortoiseshell/Tabby not always with white

Didn't know about the patched tabby, figured she wasn't coz she has alot of red in her. Never new they were the same thing

Awwww, they are adorable! I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the other two.

I should have clarified - torbie is a tortie/tabby or a patched tabby. When you have white its a patched tabby and white.

Basics (you can substitute blue or silver for the black as needed or substitute cream for red)

Tortoiseshell - colors of black and red mixed togeter

Tortoiseshell/White (or Tortie/White) - colors of black/red mixed with some white - usually only on face, chest, legs/feet.

Calico - a white cat with patches of black/red

Patched Tabby (torbie) - basically a brown/blue/silver tabby that has red/cream mixed in the coat. A patched tabby IS a tabby cat first.

Sometimes you notice in a tortoiseshell that the red color will look striped; but there is no stripes in the black part so it would not be a patched tabby/torbie.

I've got more pictures!!!

First up (or third) is Lola. She will be going to live with my neighbour. They named her and come and see her regularly. She's the second biggest and is starting to look like her dad, (well the cat that I think is their dad!!) She is the one who has done things first - eyes opening/ears up/walking... real voice box!!

Enough Babble.. Introducing Lola:



And here is my Links. He is a sweetie. I'm keeping him too.

One more of Pixie for you:



And my proud mummy Ziggy:

Ok mom IS a Brown Patched Tabby/White - very pretty; so Pix is also the same if she's the same color as mom (the 1st pictures looked silver).

And Lola is a Brown tabby and white.

And I just love Links - he's a cute red-head

They're so cute! how old are they exactly?

They look so much older them mine and mine just turned 4 weeks old today, lol. Well, I guess that will be good for when my kittens get adopted. The younger they look the more likely they are to get adopted, heehee.
post #21 of 25
Keep in mind that its better for the kittens if you leave them with mom/siblings till 10-12 weeks old minium - 16 even better They need to learn cat behavior/social stuff that only another cat can give - its more then just using the litter pan and eating solid foods

The babies are 4 WEEKS TODAY!!!

Pixie is 'normal sized' but Diego and Lola are huge - must take after their dad!!

Links is somewhere inbetween but his face shape is like Pixie's.

My kitties may have been a bit late arriving, and yours were premmies so I bet there's a massive difference between them.
