Mummycat Monday...

Well I have just about 5 weeks to go now until the kittens are due and I'm making the most of my rest time and cuddles with Mummy and my brother Ramses! :) They have both been most supportive over the past few weeks, especially with the sudden and tragic loss of my beloved Sen-Chan... *sigh* Just to have known a mancat like him has been worth the sadness though and I shall do my level best to make sure his dear little sister Tama-Chan goes on to become the ladycat I know she can be! I know he'd have expected that of her, after all he had the most wonderful manners for a mancat! ;) I speak with authority here having shared my home with 2 mancats all my life and them both being messy eaters, who I'm constantly having to clean up after... Until I met Sen-Chan I thought all mancats were like that, but he gave me hope for mancatkind as he was both, gentle and kind as well as far neater than either my dear brother Ramses (who has the excuse of having a few teeth missing) and Tigmut'hep - who's only excuse is that he has a bad case of the munchies (post 'nip abuse hunger pangs) and can't quite remember what he's doing half the time (again down to 'nip abuse I think, rather than him having a seniorcat moment!)

Anyway I'm doing well and my ickle baby kittens are just starting to swell my belly a little, in fact my weight gain is just a little in advance of last time - this means there is a greater chance that I'll either have more kittens than last time or I'll have slightly bigger ones! It's all rather exciting, especially as Marie's Mommy is due just a few days after I am!!! :) Oh yes Marie's Blurpie and my kittens could well share a Birthday even - if so this might well be the same day as Daddy's Mum's Birthday! So you see mid February is going to be a busy time for us here... What's more my second-cousin Baillee could well be going to visit her first real boyfriend Storm by then, which will mean that her Mummy will come to visit with us for an hour or so, on her way home from dropping Baillee off. I so hope that I have some kittens here to show her by then as I know she'd love to see them and I do so love to show my kittens off! :)

Oh well time for another little nap before Mummy has to get ready for her Fizzy-O, you know I really don't know why they call it that as I've licked and licked that shoulder and it doesn't really taste any different than the other one... Maybe I'll have to try it sooner after she gets back to notice any Fizzy-O?! I also think that Mummy may well look for a t-shirt for Tigmut'hep later today when she and Daddy do the weekly food hunting with the D'boy. I think it's very admirable that Mummy and Daddy both try to teach D'Boy about food hunting, although I have noted that Daddy is not allowed to prepare it for eating... I gather this is because he's a little like Tigmut'hep and would scoff the lot before anyone else got a look in, even though Mummy says it's because of something she calls "total incompetence with regard to cooking" - since I understand the word totally to mean "everything" I'm pretty sure I have my own definition correct, in that he'd eat it all, or have to eat it all himself! ;)

Dear isis,

I feel so comforted to know that you are there for me now that my brother and mentor, Sen-Chan, has gone to the Bridge. I am so looking forward to the birth of your kittens and to watching them grow!

Last night we watched a show called "Cats in the womb" and it was about a pregnant Bengal as well as a lion! It was cool to see the babies grow inside the mom's. We hope your little ones are playing nicely in there!

Oh, this is 'citing stuff! Wouldn't it be such a lovely Valentine's Day if your ickle babbies were born then?! Nobean would forget their birthdays!

Thanks so much for your crossed paws for my tests. They were "interesting" to say the least, though all the hanging round was very boring! :) xxx
