Hello. I promise to post pictures tonight. I have not had time yet to take them off the camera.
Duchess15, I was amazed beyond belief that she had 6. I was seriously not expecting that!! I think I am still in shock. Her previous litters have given us 3 with each. And with our other queens, the most we have had is 4. And she was not very large compared to her last litter. I expected 3 again this time with her.
With this litter, her 1st 3 were no more then 15 minutes apart. After the 3rd one, I waited about 30mintues with her to see if that was all she had. By that time she had started to relax and was falling asleep with the 3. She didn't really feel like she had any more in her, and it seemed if labor had stopped. So, I changed her bedding, gave clean blankets, weighted each kitten and wrote down any vital info and she went to sleep. I started doing a few things around the house. About 15 minutes after I left the nursery, I started to hear her cry again...and here was another kitty coming (45 minutes after the initial 3)...and 10 minutes later another...and about 14 minutes later another!! This is the biggest litter that we have had. I think it is very uncommon for a persian to have that many in one litter. I know of a fellow breeder who has had 6 once before (and only once)
So what we have: 3 himmys, a solid black, tortie, and a red.
