Friday night Reece (my hubby) and I went to Country Kitchen, an all night restaurant. When we left I saw this cute cat walking around the parking lot. As soon as we walked over to our car she came over and started rubbing on my legs, so I bent down to oet her. She started meowing and I started feeling bad. Her sides were all sunken in except for her big, fat gut. Well, the Country Kitchen is in the next town over and right on the main drag, and I was afraid that if we left her there she would wander out into the street and get hit by a car.
Well, Reece knows how I am, he knows that I would sit up all night and be upset, even if she didn't get hit by a car. So, we decided to bring her home with us. Now, we live in a fairly good sized 2 bedroom apartment, but let me tell you, two cats really fill up the place! We knew that we couldn't keep her, so we planned on taking her to our local Animal Protective League (which is where we got our Kida). Well, on the car ride home, I was petting the kitty and felt her nipples poking out. --Uh Oh!--
When we got her home we put her in our kennel cage and put it in the back bedroom, sequestered away from the other cats. A little under a year ago our family had a horrible incident with feline lukemia, but this isn't the time or place for that story...
Saturday I called my mom and told her about our new, temporary resident. She pointed out the fact that she might already have a litter somewhere at the Country Kitchen. I asked her to come over and take a look and give me her input, if mom thought that there was a litter of babies, I would take her back and put her where I found her.
My mom showed up and determined that this was her first litter (whew!), and that she was in labor!
Well, we waited with baited breath thinking that she was going to have kittens any moment. Well, we were wrong.
We kept checking on her Sunday, but still nothing. Monday, we both had to go off to work...and wouldn't you know it, by the time I got home Monday afternoon there were 3 tiny babies in the cage with 'Little Mama'!
They're so cute and fuzzy! Their tails are the most adorable things! And their tiny little whiskers!
Anyhow, my digital camera is pretty cheap, I can't take any good quality pictures with it, so I have to take regular pictures and wait to get them developed. But as soon as I do (and figure out how to attach them) I'll put them here for all to see!
