Got a little busy and couldn’t post for a couple of days. One of the kittens I was looking after from last summer gave birth yesterday morning. I know it sounds odd but yes, as she is a stray, she was not neutered and here she is little more than a kitten herself and with 5 babies of her own. The night before last she wanted to come into my house. She was not hungry. I thought her time had come.
We opened the laundry room for her- it is separate from the house and there is a box put there for any cat who found the night too cold outside. She went to lie down in it.
Yesterday morning, I went to look at her and there she was with 2 kittens. A few hours later, she had 5 of them. She was looking surprised to see so many wriggly creatures but in the way of nature, she grew accustomed to her new role and started licking her kittens. Soon thereafter she was suckling them. By evening she walked outside the laundry room, leaving her babies in box. She does not seem to mind all the curious, prying eyes around her. Now there will be 5 more mouths to feed.
I need to take her to the vet to get her neutered. So that’s my story for today.
