Silvie's having her babies!!!!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am soooo excited!! Silvie has had three kitties so far and I am certain there is one more to go. She has been such a good girl! She mewed while I was making dinner and her mucous plug had blobed onto the floor and I gently picked her up to put her into her nesting box (she was confused about where she should be I think) --- and she leaked clear fluid! Within 10 minutes we had the first kitty! It is dark tabby grey with white splotches. It wasn't breathing too well so I rubbed it in a soft towel and ooops - gotta go - # 4 is here!!!

Back again - - wow this has been such a fantastic experience! Mamma and babies are all suckling/sleeping so I think it is safe to post now. Wow! Well, the first kitty needed some help to take a breath but seems fine now. Second was a little white one, third another dark grey tabby (like daddy). I was sure there was one more but over half an hour passed and nothing. Silvie expelled two placentas in a row, and then ....kitty number four! Another cute white one Well, I had to rub that one a bit - mamma was so busy and a bit tired to really pay attention. But that one perked up quickley too. I sent hubby out to grab me a drink and suddenly - sploosh --- out comes number five !!! Yet another cute white one!!! I am sooooo excited!!! All the kitties seem OK - all all getting drier and seem to have found nipples. Mamma is sleeping with a big smile on her face. How blessed are we?!!??!!
I gotta admit I am still nervous. Silvie is very small and young and I am not sure how she will manage so many babies. And I know things can still go wrong, so I just pray everyone does well. This has been a wonderful night!! Thanks for listening. I am so glad I found this site with all its supporte and lovely people.

Great to hear everything went well...and now that you are a "pro"....and if you really enjoyed the experience, you may want to consider fostering for your local shelter in the future. I know many shelters need fosters when they get in pregnant cats...but that will be something for down the road. Right now, I do hope all goes well for your girl and that these kittens stay healthy.

I still remember when my litter was born like it was yesterday. Was just over two years ago and I was a new pet owner of only 4 months. Then I had three kittens to boot. What an experience the day they were born. Reading you message reminded me of that day so I thank you for your posting.

Good luck to Silvie and the kids.

Thank you for the lovely posts and encouragement. It is late AM now and all seems to be OK. I spoke to my vet and bought milk replacer and teats just in case - Silvie is little and five kitties --- well, you can guess the struggle for a "good one"! Some nipples don't seem to produce much yet so they are all fighting for a select few. I will top-up any kitties that seem to be struggling, but so far so good! Silvie is trying to be such a good mummy. I am so proud of her. I have been holding a tiny food dish under her chin and she muches away. Same with her water. Saves her from hopping up - although she has been for a walk a few times (within my closet confines) and she is looking pretty good --- if not super skinny now
I am looking into a link Chris kindly gave me to info on posting pics. I am not very great at that stuff but I will give it a go. Stay tuned --- and thanks to everyone. This is just a fantastic place!!!
PS - sorry about all the typos before - too excited for my fingers to work properly!
