Sorry it has taken me a while to get back onto here. My computer's mother board went bad and corrupted the hard drives so it took some time to get everything back into top running order again. Luckily I was able to retrieve all of the stuff on the hard drive.... phew!
And, as far as showing the mom, no I haven't thought of that. I wouldn't even know where to start and don't know if she would like that.
The kittens are doing fine. I have two boys and one girl and they are 4 weeks old now. Here are pictures of them. It was easier to hold them to get good still pictures of them. They are cuties and the "black" ones are starting to loose the black coloration and the greys are coming out. This is very typical of the babies from this line of cats. They all have silver undercoats and are born darker with the color lightening and the pattern becoming more distinct as they grow.
All three playing with Kismet, a rescue kitten. (I rescued 21 kittens from a place, bathed them, defleaed them, wormed them and found them good homes. This little girl kinda struck my heart so she is staying for a short while and will be my mom's new kitty.) AND, no, the blanket they are on is not dirty, don't want people to think that. It is a very, very old wool blanket that has rust stains all over it.
