My cat just had a kitten!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Our cat bella just had a kitten! >3< my mom woke me up several minutes ago, to show me.
it's so cute, and look's just like it's mom!

It's so small and so amazing! I mean, I knew it would be small but ... wow!

We don't think that there are any more, which doesn't come as a suprise; the vet told us that there would probably be only one; MAYBE two.

I took pictures of it, too!

I had to hold up her leg a bit; it was on the kitten.

Also, I hope I did this right and didn't misplace this thread; I'm just so happy and had to share this!

EDIT: oops. I was wrong. Looks like she's about to have another. Yay! More names toc ome up with!

Oh sweet.
Are you planning on keeping them all?
Did she have another one?

A little tortie like mom.

I do hope they you will plan on getting mom spayed when they are weaned and not let her outside agein. Talk to your vet about the right time to do this. Also I hope you plan on keeping the kittens till 10-12 weeks old minimum so they learn more social/behaviorial skills. Its not enough to just let them go as soon as they are eating solid foods and using the litter pan. Kittens will nurse up to 10-12 weeks old as long as mom lets them

Looking forward to more pics when you can.

is that a collar on your baby kitten? Does anyone here know if there's any danger of putting a collar on a kitten that tiny? I'd hate for something to happen.

Congrats on your kitty!

She just had her second one; it's so cute!

And no, we're not; we don't have any more room for more cats xD
>3< I know I'll be super attached to them by then, though.

Again, they're so cuuute. I love htem~ :3 They both look like their mama.

The collar is on the mom. The kitten is the little tiny bugger. Kinda hard to see in the pics.

:] Yea, we know; the vet told us when we took her to see if she was pregnant. But thanks anyway.
Also, Bella never got out; one of our males got her pregnant not long before we neutered him. He was the last one we had to neuter. It was a suprise that she got pregnant, to. we always thought it would be the other un-spayed female, Molly. Bella was always trying to rip their faces off during ... that time.

@Renovia
As Kai Bengals said, thats Bella's collar; we got it for her for christmas.
And if the Holy schnikees was about how small they are, I agree. It was quite suprising.

... They are so soft!

If that's a flea collar, you should remove it right away. The toxins in it are bad for the kittens.

Doesn't look like a flea collar - that's why I didn't say anything about the collar

So its only 2 torties?
post #11 of 27
Good, I couldn't tell for sure, and some things like that just don't occur to those who are used to seeing the cat all the time.

I just realized that I didn't even see the collar; I saw something, maybe a shadow, a mistook for a shiny dark brown collar. Had I seen the flowery one, I would have known better. My bad...eyes!

Nope; she had another one. it's all white, with a blck mark on it's head, just like it's father. xD

My mom thinks it's two girls and a boy.

x3 They're all so cute and tiny!

Hey everyone, I took some more pictures, and I wanted ot show you!
It's really hard to get a good picture of them all, because two fo them are so dark.
Also, I think we've figured out what gender they are.
The first one is a girl, and a tortie, like it's mama. The second one is a boy, and all black (we think xD. It's hard to tell). The last one is white, with black on it's head and tail, like it's dad, and is a girl.

xD The white one is so easy to take a picture of, because it stands out so much.

Anyway, here are the pictures:

This one was by far the best I could get; Bella was determened not to let me get a good picture. The black one is in this two; you just can't see it very well. I think it's behind the white one.
http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u...Campics015.jpg
Here's a close up of the white one.

That's the best I could get, I'm afraid. Whale I was taking the pictures, Bella kept getting in the way and rubbing my hand and stuff. I'm going to try again later.

I swear, that white one act's just like her daddy; pushing her siblings away so she can get more from her mommy.

congrats on the new babies! The lil white one with the spots on the head and the colored tail.... that's called Van (or Van's) markings - after the Turkish Van cat.

Really? That's pretty cool. I didn't know they had a name for it. xD

Also, I got some great pictures of the kittens; Bella had ot go to the bathroom, so I was able to get them without her blocking them or the two dark one's blending in with her.

Aren't they so cute?
>3< I just love that little white one!

Will be interesting as they grow to see the true colors. Your little white one is either a tortie van or a brown tabby/brown patched tabby van. There is more then the black spots - can't tell or certain at this point if its just brown tabby or a brown/red patched tabby.

Oh my stars, they are so cute! Love the little white one too - with the pink nosie!!!
post #24 of 27
They are adorable! I am in love with the Van too! Congratulations, and have fun while it lasts!

welcome to the world, babies!

Aw, the little white one reminds me of Smudge and his brother and sister!

I thought I saw some red or orange or brown close to the black, too. That would make them all female, right?
