If you follow me on both my personal Facebook and Twitter, you might’ve seen a few pictures of our new kittens! It’s really nice that I follow a lot of cat lovers on both accounts. Everybody loves baby animals too! I’ve talked about these little boogers in a previous blog post called New Kittens but recently my mom and sister decided they needed to get better pictures of them. We have a total of six kittens and if you didn’t read my last post I might have to explain the date(s) of when they were born. I say “dates” as in we had two female cats Bootsie and her daughter Midget were both pregnant at the same time, we didn’t actually notice Midget’s belly until like late March. Bootsie, you know very quickly that she’s expecting because of her mood swings and huge belly! Midget actually gave birth first on April 9th and Bootsie had hers several days later on the 15th. Midget’s kittens are definitely smaller in size, also she lost two babies in the first few days after they were born. Bootsie’s babies are massive! Both mommies nurse all six of them in the cage! A few days after I had written that post, my mom had mentioned that the little orange kitten had its eyes open.
Something that’s a bit different from our previous litters is that we actually have homes for majority of them. My mom has been basically shipping them off to her friends from work. One is actually taking two babies and a mommy cat! Of course, my sister and her boyfriend are taking two of the babies: including Bootsie and Bear Bear whenever they find a pet-friendly apartment. They have already picked out names for them, I don’t know if I had mentioned them in the last post, but they did select “Penelope” and “Tony” and you can clearly tell who named who. Now my sister has another name up her sleeve: Groo (grew) and I don’t even know where she came up with it. And you all thought I was crazy with names! In January, we had to put down our first family cat Oliver. It was very sad for all of us, but it was pretty bad for my mom because he was a present for her birthday from my dad years ago. Well, she’s been hoping for YEARS that Bootsie would give her a little ginger baby, but no luck. So leave it to Midget to help out. We still don’t know what sex they are at the moment. So our little ginger baby will either be called Otis or Olivia.
I’ve got to say I don’t feel so attached to them this time around. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t been able to spend time with them but I feel like my baby Stormy is enough for me. Speaking of Stormy, he and his fluffy brother Bear-Bear should be a year old by now! Stormy is definitely smaller in size than his older brother Grumpy but he’s one of the sweetest! Okay, so let’s get to posting the newest additions pictures!
