Friday The 13th: Black Cat + Unexpected Suprise

   I had the idea for this post when I read through my reader early this afternoon and found a post by Zoe from A Giraffe in a Scarf talking a little bit about black cats. The end of the post was left open for you to tell your own stories about your own black cat. I thought it was appropriate to talk about my cats in my blog so I would not leave a whole essay as a comment. ;) Hi Zoe!

Hi! My name is Magia and I swear I'm not evil. >:)

   A couple of weeks ago I took my little Magia to the veterinary to see what was her health status. As soon as they finished the check-up they told me that we were going to treat her severe case of lices before anything else. So I did everything as directed by the vet and that included her first bath ever...

Look deep into my eyes... >:D

   Until that bath I thought I had a super cute and misunderstood little kitty. I couldn't even think of a logical reason why people in ancient times (and very recent ones too) would hurt such a cute little thing. But two things are making me think that my black cat is evil and I kind of agree with some medieval superstitions. Thing number one would be her reaction when the first drop of water touched her skin, OMG! she almost flew off my hands. Nothing like a normal cat. Thing number two would be the presence of a considerable amount of human blood on the floor at the end of the task.

   LOL! I'm kidding about everything of course (but the human blood!) and I'm falling deeply in love with my little Magia. <3 She makes the cutest sounds and she is the tiniest 6 m/o cat many people have seen. I can't wait until she understands that I will not ever hurt her and that those scary things she has been through are just for her well-being.

See? I look completely innocent. >:)

   Now onto more serious mom talk. I can't explain the feeling; it's like I just became a mommy to my feline babies about a month ago (wait, that's actually the amount of time I've had my babies) and I'm already going to be a granny.

Friday The 13th - :3 and Mia's Pregnancy
Taken last week. Do you think I'm getting fat?

   Oh! and before you think that I'm a bad momma for not spaying her before, let me tell you the whole story.

   She has been in my house for exactly a month today, when her previous guardians gave her to me, they said that she hadn't been spayed because she was still lactating her most recent litter. Since I got Magia and Mia the same day and Mia had been checked-up recently by a vet I decided to bring Magia (who was previously a stray) to the vet first. We all know that vets aren't cheap, so considering that my cats are indoors' I thought that Mia's spaying could wait a couple of weeks.

   About 2 weeks ago I started to see an increase in her appetite and a little bit of a hanging belly. I went crazy thinking about how could it be possible for my cat to be so pregnant in such a short amount of time. Considering that she hasn't been out of the house by any means, and there's no way for a tom to get into my house I figured that she was already pregnant when I brought her! So she has to be about 6 or 7 weeks into her pregnancy; she is huge and getting bigger every day.

   So after the initial shock, I thought it would be cute to make a pregnancy journal for those of you interested in following her progress until she gives birth to her little kittens. This would be entry number 1!

Look how happy I am...

Momma loves you!

Please pray for Zoe's babies. They're too cute to be going through such a hard time.

  1. Wow, you're going to be a grandmummy! Exciting! Cats can get pregnant again very soon after they give birth, so she's lucky to have found you to take care of her now. Magia is such a gorgeous black girl, I love her bright orange eyes!

    Thank you for your lovely comment about Daisy. xo

    1. I aaam! I really am happy that she is with me now and as soon as she is done nursing her babies she is going to be spayed. I love Magia's eyes too, I can't believe she was a stray.

      No problem darling, I sincerely hope that everything turns out as fine as possible. My best wishes for your little family.
