Maverick's litter - Page 2

post #31 of 55
Congratulations. What a special bond you must have with Maverick that she would crawl on your lap to give birth. That is amazing but oh so beautiful! Me, I'd name that kitty STAR (bright and beautiful in the night sky). Give Maverick all our love and pets and whisper that we think she did a wonderful job.

i have to type quickly before Maverick come finds me! she seems to think we'r in this together and leaves the kitten with me when she goes eat/toilet and rounds me up when i leave the room.

i cant believe she had it on my lap either. shes such a mean little creature, at least i know she does like me a little bit! i'm worried about this kitten being an 'only child' because it might grow up as spoilt as Maverick!

keep the names coming, i might have to pull one out of a hat at this rate. its my turn to name this one so i want it to have a better name than Maverick - i've learnt to love it but i still cringe wen the vet calls it out or when making appointments.

my sisters boyfriend speaks farsi so i'll have to ask him.

i'n starting to miss tcs, i can only come on in 10min bursts or else Maverick gets anxious and comes to find me. i dread to think what she'll do when i have lectures.

i woke up this morning because she was making happy noises at her baby and then got into bed for her morning cuddle. she gets a bit anxious if she can here the front door open or occasionly when people come up the stairs and growls but all in all she seems quite content.

was a bit scared that people coming in to see the kitten would freak her out so have (tried) to ban family from room. she doesnt seem to mind unless its my little brother (who she inexplicably dislikes) then she'll growl and sit in the box guarding the kitten.

She will probably be a bit anxious for the first few days so it will be best to keep her as quiet and content as possible! Keep us posted.

Sounds like a natural mum to me, that one. Some cats have a little bit of an iffy start and aren't too sure of what they're doing, but Mav seems to have nailed it! Not only that, but I think it's sweet that she loves and trusts you enough to crawl into your lap to give birth, but she also comes and looks for you to keep an eye on her kit when she's elsewhere. You're a priveleged lady!

Don't know quite how I missed this thread, but belated congratulations to you, Nicky and Maverick of course! She sounds like she knows just what she is doing - a free baby sitter. I wish I had had one.

It is your turn to name the kitten right?? Go with which ever one you want!! Personally I think Wiggly is a great name!!! Pictures soon I hope!!

Good to hear the baby is doing fine. Has Maverick calmed down and realised that it's not going to stop moving?
post #48 of 55
You said you wanted to name it after Shakespeare characters right? I would say if it's a boy, a cool name would be Othello.
post #49 of 55
Shakespeare charactors? Demetrius! Gosh I love that name!

at the moment we'r calling it the Kachichi which means (roughly) the cute/adorable one and in want of anything better it might stick.

Maverick left me to babysit for ages last night. shes broken my tv by dropping the remote control into a bowl of water to see if it floats and messed up the ariel by jumping on it so just had to sit there twiddling my thumbs! if i'm in the room she happily plays and naps downstairs but if i come down she runs to check the baby.

no i think the moving still shocks her! took another 2 pics today and if i use up the film will get it developed tomorrow. i dread to think how she'll react when the baby can open its eyes. for all she knows its gonna stay blind and small for ever. shes in for such a shock when it grows into a big black monster.

Boyfriend said we should call it Stevie Wonder as its black and blind. bit below the belt i thought!

i *think* its a boy because when it bent over it had boyish looking bits. its 50/50 chance i'm right!

i really liked othello too but a bit obvious with it being black?

plus i made my bf sit through that film O - a modern day Othello. might bring back memories.

My mum liked Habibe which means darling. my brothers friend is called that and he got teased so much when everyone found out what it meant.

i also liked Leontes from a winters tale or Florizel. Bf says our future children will get bullied at school if i'm allowed to name them.

NEWSFLASH: dad said we can keep the kitten if we call it Ray after Ray Charles. these black and blind jokes are getting old...

my dads name is also ray so he might well be serious

To tell the kittens sex have a look under the tail for the holes. If they are close together its a girl and if there further apart its a boy.

I hope that helped, sorry didn't get to read all the replies so if you already know I am sorry.

I am very happy for you sweetie and can't wait to see some piccies.
