Two Weeks and Two Days!

Well it's not long to go now, 'til I have a lovely litter of ickle baby kittens to love and clean! As you can see I'm looking rather wonderful and still enjoying posing for lots of photos, as well as playing with my brother Ramses or that grump Tigmut'hep! ;)

I've not gained any more weight this week, but Mummy says my waistline is looking more bulgy! Honestly Mummy yours would too iffen you had a belly full of kittens, especially as they're starting to move a bit now... Just nice gentle reassuring movements, nothing scary like in that movie Alien! ;)

Mummy says I can now count the days until my kittens are here on my paw pads, since Tuesday I've counted off the two dewclaws and am now starting to count off the toe pads of my back left paw - I've been checking the paw every few hours to make sure I still have the same number of toe pads on it! ;) On Monday next week I will start counting off the toe pads on my back right paw... By this time next week I'll be able to start on my left front paw, once I've counted that one off daily and am on my right front paw the kittens could come any time! :) Mummy has warned me that they could be a few days late even so not to get myself worried iffen they like it in the warmth for an extra day or two... ;) Anyway it's not long now! :)

Oh and last night Mummy came home with some new scales for weighing the kittens on! :) She has to weigh them straight after they are born and then twice a day every day for the first few weeks to make sure they're thriving and drinking up all their milk like good ickle kittens should! Once they're a few weeks old, Mummy will only have to weigh them every 2-3 days just to make sure they continue to grow nicely... Next week on "Tummy Tuesday" I'll be going through her list of things she will or might need for the kitten birth with her and seeing if she's remembered it all! Oh yes I'm keeping a close eye on everything from warming pads to kitten feeding bottles... It's surprising how much preparation is needed to make sure everything goes smoothly for me and the kittens, but it does mean that unless it's a real emergency I shouldn't need to see my Vet man, Hubert or even Sally Vet at out emergency vets! :)

Now I fink it's time for a nap before I start asking for my lunch... ;) Oh yes and I'm seeing someone else one of my kittens might own on Saturday morning! :) Plus Mummy'll be going to a cat show this weekend and might come home with treats and toys for us all!

My bean has a really funny kitten story from when my Bean's Mom's cat Juliet had her kittens. It seems Julie decided only my Bean would do as midwife, so she waited until my Bean was at the house one night, laid down right in front of her and went into labor. They rushed her to the birthing box and everything was going along fine. The first one came out, no problem, but my Bean HAD to go use the litter box, she couldn't wait anymore. So she figured Julie would be okay with one kitten and one on the way for a minute or two but no...she came right after my Bean, with kitten number two starting to push out the back end. Oh my...

She ended up with three beautiful little kittens and all of them were healthy.

I hope your delivery goes as easy.
