Georgia's Kitten Thread (pic heavy)

59 posts in this topic

A few weeks ago, my mother and I were driving in a parking lot when all of a sudden we saw a cat running across a busy highway towards us. Out of curiosity, as the cat passed us, I called out to her to see if she would approach me. Much to my surprise, she did, and was very friendly. The poor thing was pretty skinny and would probably be hit by a car if we left her, so on an act of sheer spontaneity, we decided just to take her. My mom named her Susie.

 

A few days later my mother took her to the vet to get her checked out. I got a phone call later during the day to hear that the cat was pregnant and giving birth in 2 weeks. :yikes

 

This past Saturday after I came home from work, I noticed she was acting off and very restless. She sat in her bed and began purring loudly and grooming herself consistently. When I noticed her stomach contracting, I knew the fateful moment had come. Within about half an hour she gave birth to her first kitten, and then two after that. I was there with her the whole time, and witnessing the births was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. They are doing wonderfully, and getting bigger every day.

 

Here are a few pictures. :)

 

Proud momma Susie :teehee

***** Please keep in mind that although raising kittens is a wonderful experience, I do not condone the deliberate breeding of cats to have kittens (unless you are an experienced and professional breeder). There are many kittens in shelters looking for homes already! Please consider adopting, and above all, always spay and neuter!! ****

 

I will update this thread periodically to follow their development. Enjoy! :D

Two are black and white and one is all black. 2 boys and 1 girl. :teehee My mom wants to keep the girl (2nd picture). I don't know what we will do with the others yet. There's no way we can keep all three. That would be 6 cats total. :yikes The black one is most definitely the runt, but he is very rambunctious. :rofl

My mom named the girl Daisy and I insist we name the two boys Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway. :rofl3

If you're able to keep the babies till they're 8 weeks old and weigh 2 pounds, your local shelter should be happy to take any you can't place. We love getting happy, healthy, well-socialized kittens that weigh enough to be spayed/neutered and don't need to go into foster care because they're too young or too small.

If you place any yourself, there should be low-cost spay/neuter clinics in your area so you can fix them before you let someone take them. Adopters have good intentions but bad follow-through. I can help you find a good, inexpensive clinic in your area if you want, just let me know. :)

P.S. They're so cute I couldn't stop smiling at the pics! And Susie looks like a lovebug.
