ABIGAIL's Kittens Born

 Well, a nice message for all on my waiting list.  ABIGAIL had her kittens on Saturday.  She had 5, all boys and was having too much trouble.  So for the first time in 12 years, I had  to take a cat to have a C-Section.  Poor ABIGAIL.  She had one more little girl to add to the mix.  She is, of course, already adopted.  But that leaves 5 happy families who will get a little boy kitten.  I have started e-mailing and calling ones on my waiting list.  And as so many  times happens, I haven't gotten any positive responses yet.  So I will be moving on the the next few on my list.  I need to wait a little bit to allow time for contact, and then go on to the next name or names.  It is a process, but the only fair way is to do it one by one to reach everyone in turn.  I pretty much go by the date that ones contacted me.  I don't have a numerical list of names.  So to ask what number you are on the list...I don't have that. If you contacted me in January 2021, I still have to work my way through October, November and December of 2020.  So patience is key here.

Here is a sneak peek at the little ones.  What is so cute is that we got 2 Colorpoints (don't know what colors yet) Two black, one Black w/ White and for only the 3rd time in 12 years, I have a solid black Siberian kitten.  He is big and strong and beautiful.  And , for me at least, rare.  So exciting.

And then we have 2 Blue Tabby points. one girl (adopted), and one Blue w/ White boy.

MY beautiful ABIGAIL.  She is doing good and has had one more visit with the Vet.  And I am glad I no longer have to keep bottle feeding the kittens every two to three hours,  man, was I tired.  She just had to have supplemental help for a few days because surgery can make her produce less milk.  But she is one strong girl, she was feeding them right along and quickly got her milk production to where she can take care of things on her own already.  What a  trooper.

Very early pictures, obviously.  (smile)

2-2-2   2 Colorpoints,  2 Blue Tabbys and 2 Black , one solid and one Tabby.

I lined them up like this and had to hurry to take the shot. As you can see one boy already turned around on me.  They don't stay still even when newborn and eyes not opened yet.

The boy Blue Tabbys face shows the white coloring on him.  The girl has solid Blue Tabby features.

I hope you like the pictures.  And I know the waiting list is full and there are only 6 kittens to go around.   But DREAMER should also be delivering in another two weeks.  She looks kinda small for her, so I don't have any idea how many she will have.

So, for now, enjoy the pictures.  And I have a long job in front of me. (haha)

More pictures in a week or so.

I don't know why Google will not allow me to change my address and phone number on the WEB page, but the real information is always at the closing of each blog.  My daughter DID make all the changes once, but with everyone telling me the phone number didn't work, I discovered Google changed it all back to the old address and phone number.  So until that gets cleared up, here is the right information once again:
