so officially at 7 pm last night i got 4 little grandkitties!! i got to see 3 out of the 4 be born- what an AMAZING expierence, i was almost in tears (happy tears of coarse) they are adorable and 3 out of the four look identical (all black) the fourth one looks just like her momma black adn brown. i am so excited to see these little guys grow up! good news is, i wont have to worrry about giving them up to anyone, my mom just told me she would keep 2 and me and FH are keeping 2! i gotta take some pictures to post but i think i gotta wait til they get a little older- i dont want to disturb them. and momma cat is such a good mommy to her babies.
so we now have six cats in the house— pretty sure this qualifies me to become a cat lady.

Congrats! Pictures of kitten cuteness?
Also, will you get them fixed when the time comes?

Yay, congrats! I got to experience the birth of kittens a couple years ago (we thought our girl was spayed, but then she was looking plump and started popping out a kitten on my lap!), and it was so cool.
Can’t wait to see the pictures, they sound adorable!

Pics please, pics please! I know you said you plan on posting them but I always get so excited about kittens! I grew up with a lot of them being fostered into our home so they make me happy.
Congrats on the grandkitties! Oh, and double congrats on now having to re-home them. I love the fact that all four are staying in the family. How sweet!

I bet their cute. And I don’t want to lecture you too much about getting your animals spayed and neutered, however, the shelter worker/spay and neuter advocate in me must (just a little)… Even though you found homes for these ones already, it won’t always be that easy, especially if they are mostly black or dark colors (don’t know why but people don’t like black kittens). It would be best to get ALL of the cats and kittens (when they are big enough, for most vets thats 2 lbs/around 8 weeks) spayed and neutered. Once momma kitty stops nursing them (usually around 6-7 weeks) you should get her fixed asap, because she can turn around and go get pregnant again and then 11 weeks from then you’d have more kittens to worry about (yes, that quick!)
Enough of my lecture, congratulations, kittens are very cute and I’m so glad they already have loving homes. Can’t wait to see pics as they grow. The first 8 weeks I swear they change everyday!
Oh and just make sure she is making enough milk for all of the kittens, some cats don’t… And if they don’t you can suppliment them with KMR (kitten milk replacer, you can get some by HARTZ at the grocery store), just put it in a bowl and mix it accordingly and let them drink what they want. And put momma on a kitten food or even a lactating queen food to help her produce enough milk. 🙂

Exciting time! Yay and I bet they’re so cute.
But I agree with everything that o0olibelulao0o said above. PLEASE get them spayed/nuetered (along with the mom!) when they are ready. There should be low-cost spay/nueter options in your area.

I agree with the PPs….please get mama cat spayed as soon as it can be done. Also, the kittens can, (and probably should), be spayed/neutered before they go to their new homes so they are not producing more babies. Shelters are full as it is.
That being said, congrats on the litter, and hopefully all goes well from here! I, too, would like to see some pictures! Since kittens are born with their eyes closed, I am not sure how a flash could hurt their eyes…? Not trying to take a dig at daydream, I’m just curious. 🙂

Aw, that is cool to watch! I would be in amazement like a little kid! I can’t imagine having 6 cats though! I have 2 and I’m constantly cleaning up after them, they can be messy!

i dont have my camera with me right now but i got a couple of great shots of them that i will post tomarrow!! cute kitties are coming soon!! i promise! And yes i am getting them all sprayed when their old enough and momma is def getting sprayed we dont want her preggars again. 6 cats is more then enough! momma cat (Cassie) is doing well, shes such a good momma- doesnt leave her babies side- that made it hard to get pictures lol. but their soooo cute look like little rats right now
@.o0olibelulao0o– thanks for all the good advice! im gonna go out and get some of that cat food that you recommended.
me and FH have been reading all about cat labor and kittens…. and its a good thing we did because Cassie was exhausted after having 2 kittens and she neeeded help getting the last 2 out… one was stuck in the ummm birth canal lol, i guess you could call it. Fh had to pull it out, poor cat was exhausted and was having trouble pushing. Fh also had to cut the umbicial cord too bc momma cat was to tired to chew it lol. sry if this is to Too Much Information i just find it fasinating. dont worry we read about it before hand, and if your cat needs help with the labor its ok and is encouraged to help out. but what an awesome expierence to see!
