The kitties are here!!!
Miss Kitty had her babies on Tuesday morning! She did great. She had five beautiful, healthy, gorgeous kittens.
Two black and white tuxedos,
Two white with grey/black tiger patches,
and one that's mostly grey/black tiger with some brownish areas.
Have I mentioned that she is about the sweetest cat I have ever met? Even while in labor, if I was petting her, she was purring.
That contrasted quite nicely with what I had anticipated: that if I reached my hand into the box, her head would spin around and she would scream "Don't touch me you son of a b**ch!"
Nope. Sweet and loving through the whole process.
You could tell she had read the What To Expect When You're Expecting Kittens book, because she followed all the steps precisely:
1) Birth a kitten.
2) Eat the birth sac.
3) Clean the kitten.
4) Birth the placenta.
5) Eat the placenta.
6) Look like you're about to hurl.
The other kids had already left for school, but Daniel and I were around for most of the process. When he got an eyeful of that first placenta, he tapped into speed I never knew he had. He made a personal best as well as a household best in his time in the Leaving the Room event.
I know some mammals of the human variety eat the placenta, too, and who am I to judge, but GROSS! Although watching the process, it made me realize how natural and probably nutritious (and revolting) it is. In fact, I thought of a couple of slogans should the placenta crowd ever want to market their approach:
It's what's for breakfast.
Packed with protein, placenta really satisfies.
What do you think? Would either of those make you want to eat your placenta?
No? Maybe I shouldn't have quit my day job...
Taking orders for kittens NOW!!! Just think, you can have one of these little beauties for your very own in about six short weeks!
