Kendall never made a sound during delivery she purr'ed the whole time she was givin birth at 4:20 our first boy was born and instead of placenta another baby was born at 4:23am they appear to be twins and from what the vet said they are for sure twins then at 6:00am our pure white girl was born strange because she is tortie and so is the tom she was bred too,and at 7:00am we had our last kitten who looks just like her momma... I was worried that Kendall wasnt going to be a very good mom because she is so independent and i thought that maybe the babies would end up being a problem for her, but how was i wrong she is a great mom who takes such good care of her babies. As of today 2 of the 4 kittens eyes are starting to open. They are all gaining weight in a hurry very rollie polie.
Thank you for allowing me to share my joy with all of you.
Hey Kathi...great to hear everything went ok.
|she is tortie and so is the tom she was bred
Interesting, since I've read on more than one site that tortie males are infertile:http://www.messybeast.com/mosaicism.htm
