Kitten #6

This little boy was born last, he took his time coming into the world.

He also has the darkest fur.

He also has pretty markings on his face.

He is very laid back and I find him sleeping a lot. I was worried about him at first but I see him pushing his way through to get dinner too.

Kitten #5

I took this picture first of the little grey striped male because I find him many times on his back sleeping, not a care in the world. This little guy is the first born, he is the only one right now that I see kind of playing by slapping others with his paw. I also have found him trying to scratch his ear with his back foot, it’s really cute.

He is going to be a really pretty cat.

He can walk pretty well for only being two weeks old.

What can I say, he is a sweetheart. I am quite prejudice, after all I helped deliver them.

Kitten #4

This little girl is the loudest, so loud Mama had to come up and sit with her during the photo shoot!

She has the most toes.

She has the most tiger stripes.

I think she is going to look a lot like her mom!

She is also the strongest. She is a go getter!

She knows what she wants and is beautiful.

Kitten #3

This little boy is just real easy going. Just goes with the flow.

He seemed a little camera shy and didn’t like that lens pointing at him though.

I finally got a front view of him. Look at him sitting there with his little paws out in front of him.

He is a really nice little guy and would make a fine pet for someone.

Kitten#2

This little grey and white female was protesting her picture being taken or wasn’t happy that I woke her up.

Good picture of her sweet face.

She was protesting so much Mama had to jump up and give her a snuggle.

Her back legs are strong and she gets around pretty well for a little over two weeks old.

Little bit of stripes on her tail and more grey than white.

Kitten #1

I am going to have a post for each kitten so people who are interested in giving them a good home will have a close up they can study. As of today 08-27-17 they are two weeks and three days old. All their eyes are open and they are moving around on unsteady legs. This is a little male kitten. He is the only one with dark legs and look at all his toes. He will be able to balance himself well.

Here is his sweet face and his personality is sweet also. I was sitting on the floor with the kittens and he climbed up into my lap and stayed there.

As like all of them, he is just a peanut right now, comparing to the size of my hand. He has pretty blue eyes right now, that probably won’t stay that way I suppose. Little bit of tiger striping on the front and such a face!

The back legs are not strong yet, but they can still move around where they want to go, which isn’t far from Mama.

So this is kitten #1, just a little more than a handful at two weeks and three days.

Five Days Old

Five days old and they are getting stronger. I was changing the bedding and had everyone out of the box on a sheet. Left the room for a moment and came back and a grey one had crawled 4 feet away and was crying and mom was getting frustrated. I got everything all put back to normal and everyone calmed down. In this picture it appears that everyone has a full belly for the moment.

A Mamas love.

Love their sweet little faces and paws.

This picture I took at my studio window. These two are from her litter that she had the last week of April. Miggy, the kitten inside is one who joined the family. I call the one outside Pookey and he is the one that we couldn’t catch. Well since I have Mama confined with her kittens he has finally let us pet him and is becoming super loving. His neck looks funny because he was bit a few weeks ago and it got infected and he rubbed the fur off. Since he couldn’t be caught it couldn’t be addressed but it is now healing nicely because I was able to clean it and put antibiotic cream on it. The fur is now growing back. Soon I will be able to have him tame enough to transport and get neutered and such. So the two of them talk to each other through the window.

I just loved the face of the kitten behind her head. So stinkin sweet.

 

The Kittens are Here!

I feel like the housekeepers in 101 Dalamations…The Puppies are Here! Here are the kittens just hours old. When I got home from work at 10:30 she had one of them. I sat there with her for four hours to help her with the rest. She is a really good Mama! A very tired lady right now too.

A little more close up, she didn’t even care if I had the camera pointed in there. It appears that the big grey cat that walks through the yard sometimes is the dad, he needs to be caught and neutered, as Mama will be spayed in about 8 weeks. Many do have the extra toes too. The miracle of birth is awesome! We are going to need homes for these kittens, please consider it.

 

Just a few random pictures

I have two bird feeders outside of the window that the cats can watch them. They sit on their cat tree and make the funny “I see birds noises”. Goldfinches are so pretty and this one gave me the opportunity for a close up shot. That little bird feeder is solar and has lights on it at night,..for my enjoyment, I don’t think it helps the birds with landings for night feeding.

The crane or heron was standing with his back to me and I liked his reflection in the pond.

I have a new lens and was able to get closer. I so enjoy when they come to the pond.

This moose was on loan at a Maine rest area. This is the only one I saw!!

Of course we had to stop by Kennebunkport at the Bush compound to take a picture.

Mama Mia!

Not too long ago I wrote about Mama kitty who brought her kittens to us in “Let Me Tell You About the Kittens.” Well she has gotten herself in a motherly way again. She had her other kittens the last week of April, and I was not quick enough to get her spayed and this is what happens. I was waiting for the nursing to stop. So right now she is in captivity in our sunroom. She wasn’t really keen on this since she is an outdoor cat, but she has resigned herself. We are in the waiting stage right now so we call it our maternity ward, soon to be nursery. Here she is, showing off her very large belly.

This is Miggy, one of her kittens looking in at her. We let him in and the first time, she recognized him, and her eyes lit up, and he got all hissy. Now she gets kind of hissy but he wants in.

Her life isn’t so bad even though she has to stay in the room. She gets fed, clean water, a nice bed, birds to watch, outside sounds, treats, a nice clean litter box and toys.

A nice profile of Mama. I am going to put her in the Community Cat program with us as the caregivers. She will get spayed and shots and we will have a nice outside shelter for her and also her other kitten whom you should read about in my other post. I am now able to pet him and put flea medicine etc. He needed some love since Mom is no where to be found.

When she is not pregnant she is a very thin, long cat. Here is her beautiful face. She has an Egyptian cat look to her. She is a polydactyl cat or has extra toes. 3 out of her 5 kittens had the same thing, they are really pretty neat.

Close up of Miggy. All the cats are sweet, and loving and purr their hearts out.

This is Willie, my niece Angie took the grey boy. As you can tell he is pretty laid back. I need to find good homes for the upcoming kittens. They will be litter box trained and I am sure as loving as can be. A co worker took a female grey and white which they named Winter and she like the others loves to curl up around the neck and purr. Mama Mia makes great kittens. Stay tuned for new kitten pictures. If you have room in your heart and home for a new 8 week old kitten please email me.
