They come out of their nest!!! (+pics)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Sorry for bombarding the forum with pics of my little 4 angels. If you are not bored of them, below there are some pics taken today (with no flash as I didnt want to hurt the babies' eyes ). Ignore the date on the photos - I dont know how to change it on the camera!

Day 20...they are quite active now and crawl in and out of their nest. I notice that they are starting to walk a bit more sturdier, but still do the cute shake and stumble thing.



The boys having a wrestling match



Little princess Amelia



Cutie Theodore - It looks like he has a pawprint on his head!



Little shy Leo



Beautiful but 'bruiser' Boris - bravest of the bunch

Would love to have that little red classic tabby boy!

Watch out - you have 3 red-headed boys - you are in BIGGGG trouble when they start really running around

I can't see the photos, but my guess is that dad was orange and mom black?

Mum is a chocolate tortie (same colour as Amelia) (and she is half siamese)

The dad...well its anyone's guess. But we think its a local white cat. Would that make sense with the kittens colouring?

White cats are pretty. They had a link to see the gene pool of this stuff. Gave me a migraine so I have no desire to figure it out. Causes my brain to work

Mom gives color to the males and females. Dad gives colors to the females only (X chromosone).

I doubt that the father was a white cat as white is dominate and you'd have at least one all white kitten.

If the mom is a tortie (carrying both black/red), then the father could be either black or red - the mom gave one color and the father the opposite color to the little female kitten.

Interesting..if the dad isnt white...the only other black/red option i can think of might be the black and white cat that was trying to get in the house through a glass door the last week (yes mum cat is back on heat! but being strictly locked in until spayed).

If it could be him, is it usual for male cats to come back to the same female 'for more'?

I am sure a male would. If they where friends then yep. Crowning up the neighbor had 16 cat and we had 11 and all related. Yes we fixed our animals, but she had just 1 female and was not fixed. All the babies came out the same. I can recall at the last 5 litters in 8 years. Also found out the male up the street was the dad. No wonder the babies always looked alike LOL. We took in 8 of the cats because she had so many. Taz was the last of them put to sleep at 16. Makes me wonder what happened to the cat lady
