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!!!

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!
