Tummy Tuesday!

Well look at what those lovely people at Zoolatry have made me, to make the start of my last 2 full weeks of pregnancy! :) I hope that stork is ready to work overtime, 'cause my belly's getting huge... ;) I've also noticed that my nipples are getting all big, in fact I've become rather fascinated with them and have been spending plenty of time grooming them - Dad keeps teasing me and saying I shouldn't start trying to drink my own milk or there'll be none left for my ickle baby kittens... Silly Dad, just cause I guzzled your tea the other day, you fink I want to drink all the milky stuff I can - well ok mostly you're right! ;) But the kittens will have plenty of milk and Mummy's got a supply of kitten formula in just in case...

Most days now I'm hungry enough to ask for a little extra meat at lunchtime as well as my bikkies and cat milk or yoghurt! The boys are helping me eat it all up iffen I don't get there fast, so Mummy has to stand guard until I've had my fill... Honestly you'd have thought that Tigmut'hep was the one having the ickle baby kittens from the amount he can shovel away! ;) Mummy says it's only 2.5 weeks now until the kittens are due and I may feel like finding a nice spot to have them in soon... I will have to read my pregnancy book with Mummy some more to see what I have to do next - it's a shame they don't have pregnancy classes for ladycats, though at lease I have Mummy as my birth coach! :) She'll be there to hold my paw and see to my every need and that of each and every ickle baby kitten I have - Mummy has pointed out that she may need a few extra hands for all the jobs I have lined up for her... ;)

Let me see, I want her to hold my paw, mop my brow, make sure each kitten stays warm while it's siblings are being born, weigh each kitten at birth and tell me iffen it's a boy or girl kitty - oh yes and put on an ID band so I can tell who is who right from the get go! :) I mean when they are first born all kittens look much the same, and Abys are often exactly the same colour too and have no distinguishing markings, plus they'll smell the same until they start developing their own special individual scent (please make sure none smell like Baby Mao!), so it's kind of essential that Mummy makes it easy to tell them apart! ;)

You'll be fine dear. I think all the nipple grooming is to stimulate your milk so it will be ready to go when the kittens get there.

Oh Isis, this is so exciting! We are glad your mom is making sure the boys don't eat too much of your food! It's wonderful that she's all prepared to help you with everything. We wonder how many kittens you'll have!

I can't wait to see them! I didn't think about them all looking the same as babies! I had only 2 that where twin babies, they stayed really close looking growing up but their personalties were WAY different. :) ~Queen Snickers
