Mia's Pregnancy Journal 3 :: I'm a granny!

I'm a granny!

   I'm SO excited to announce that I'm now the proud granny of 4 cute little kittens. My cat Mia delivered her babies yesterday during the morning. When I woke up, there was only one baby with her and I was worried because her belly was big enough for 2 or 3 kittens. It seems like the baby had just been born and she was still in labor. Of course she had to go to the most uncomfortable place of the house for me to keep an eye on her instead of using the basket I prepared for her weeks ago. When I realized what was going on, I brought the basket into the room in which she decided to deliver the babies and she jumped right in. I even had to grab the newborn kitten and put it close to her so she could start nursing it as soon as possible.

   After that, everything was a piece of cake. Every time I popped over to see how she was doing, I'd see a new kitten. I seriously started to worry about finding homes for all of them, but I decided I'd keep one. Two others found a home as soon as I published the picture above on Facebook, so I only need to find a home for one... AND it was only hours after they were born. I'M SO HAPPY!!!

The calico is acting as pillow in this picture in case you can't tell. :D

   I'm in love with these babies, as you can see on the picture above they're all different. There's a black one, a gray tabby (just as its momma), a tortoiseshell and a calico. I read an awesome legend about tortoiseshell cats which made me fall in love with my tortie, so I think I'll keep it but I'm not sure yet. I want to see how their characters and attitudes develop. Wish me luck on this new adventure!

    1. Thank you very much Zoe, I'm so happy I can't even describe the feeling. <3

      I've been reading about them a lot; I even found a gorgeous legend (let me know if you are interested so I can translate it) and I think they're special indeed. I'd love to see pictures when you get yours.

      Have an awesome week!

  2. So cute. I really want a cat but we already have a very hyper dog. I'll just have to look at cute kitten pictures instead. :]

    1. You should definitely adopt a cat. They are super easy to care for (obviously unless he gets sick or something), they clean themselves and if there's food, water and litter available you will have an awesome pet to love. In any case, you are totally welcome to look at my kittens. Have a nice day!

  6. How sweet. I love cats. I've got 2 along with a dog. Someone dropped a box off at my work with a note that said 6 kittens need good homes. I rehomed 4 and kept my 2. Congrats on your new additions!

    1. Oh my! That's so sad, but it's awesome that you found all of them homes. You need to let me see some pictures of your darlings. Thank you very much for your kind words.

  7. They are soooo adorable! I LOVE torties! I think our cat might officially be a calico because she has white on her, but the rest of her is more like a tortie - she is a tortie in her soul! What is the legend you read?!

    Good luck on this exciting new adventure!

    1. Thank you, I feel like a proud mama! Torties are super cute and that legend I talk about makes them awesome to me. I'll go check out your blog to see pics of your kitty, I'm pretty sure you must have some in there. ;)

      As soon as I finish translating the legend I'll post it here so anyone interested can marvel at the awesomeness of their torties and calicos.
