Adagio's Kitten! (pics)

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
The vet said that there were supposed to be 2, but yesterday she went into labor and just had the one. I don't know if there are going to be more. I have been feeling her belly for more, but I am not really sure what to look for. She also doesn't mind when I prod at her belly like she did when she was pregnant with this little one.
Here are some pics!

hmm...well maybe the vet miscounted?
The vet said my cat has two in there, she is due any day now and she isnt that big.
Very cute though!

Oh....just wondering but was she really fat?

Aww he's cute - little blue baby. Sometimes if they are across you might be fooled into thinking its two instead of one.

Yes, she was pretty large, I think, though it also seems to me that her kit is a little big, too. I don't have any good pictures of when she was pregnant though.

I can't really feel anything left in her, though I am not completely sure what to feel for. there are no hard spots or anything moving, so she must be done.

**UPDATE**
There are new blood spots on Adagio's sheet. Miscarriage?

Not necessarily - cat will spot a day or two after giving birth. If its only a few spots don't worry - if its more then she needs to see a vet to be sure she doesn't have another kitten inside.

Thanks, GoldenKitty45. yupp, it was only a few little spots and little Leo is doing very well!

Awww, cutie!

And just another reassurance that spotting is normal after labor. Smudge spotted for a few days after she gave birth to her 6 babies.

Oh so cute. I love the blue ones. I guess you are keeping Leo since you named him. Leo has Mama all to himself.

Well, my sister's friend told me that if Daggi had a boy, that she would take him and name him Leo, but she has now told me that since there is only one, I can keep him if I want to.

I still haven't decided that, but if I do keep him, I'd name him something else to go along with the musical theme.

the name Leo is way too normal for me

Aww, what a cute little baby. His mommy is lovely too - and what a lucky boy to get all his mother's attention to himself! I'm so glad the birth went smoothly. Keep us updated!

My Meeko only had one and she felt very hard on the side so she went to the Vet teh next day and it was constipation. I kept her only kitten and he was a huge kitten. Maybe she only had one. Shadow the mom of my Meeko and Sasha was huge with Ash and he was her only kitten. Sometimes they fool the vet. I would watch her.

Oh you should keep little Staccato. Just throwing a new name out for size.

I think it would be lovely if Adagio got to be with her baby boy for life. They would get along and you would get to have 2 lovables.

Just a thought.

If I get to keep him *fingers crossed* I would try to name him Staccato to go along wthe musical theme, but my mom probably wouldn't like it. I think she'd go for something like Coda though, so that would be ok.

I really really hope I get to keep him. I hope he stays on his best best behavior so my mommy falls in love with him like I have!

I like Allegro for the name, then you can have Adagio and Allegro, those names sound good together!! IMO that is.

He is adorable!!

oh brother...

I am having problems determining the sex of this kitten. I was 83% sure that baby was a male, but now, I am really not so sure.

I might take some pictures of baby's backside later and post them on here.

How weired! I JUST said to myself, she should name him Coda!! I think it is meant to be.

You could call him Forte too.

i like Allegro, too. i mean, if you're going to have a theme [like i do ] then go all the way! stick w/tempo!
other choices: Largo, Lento, Presto, Vivo, Vivace, Allegretto, Moderato, Andante, Andantino, Tranquillo, Marcato, Misterioso, Tempo... possibilities abound!

Don't feel bad about not knowing the sex! I'm a breeder and my one rex had ONE white baby in a litter. I thought it was a boy for weeks - looked like it to me and was gonna keep him. When you only have one kitten and nothing to compare it to - it can be a little hard. If you know genetics and know the parents color, you can determine sex a lot easier...its when the color can be either sex is the problem

Anyway, kitten was doing fine, until I took him to the vet's for 1st shots at 7 weeks old. Vet came in and said to me "are you sure its a male?" I said yes, I breed cats, I know it is.........vet: Well your little boy really is a little girl!

Boy was I embarrased - first time I couldn't tell the sex, but I swear the kitten had balls in the back!

One other thing that is a little bit of a problem in only kittens. They never learn proper sibling lessons. They can have a problem in adjusting to other cats. Even tho I had other cats in the house, she was a little weird with them - as if she didn't know how to play properly.

She also turned out to be deaf and was placed in an only cat home where they had a deaf dog. Kitten got along fine
