Daisy's Kittens Update!

This is the Mom...I promise to finish the Squillion raffle and publically announce all the winners as soon as I get the kitchen table ready for hat pouncing! Katie Too and Maxie will have the honors.

I just had to tell this Wordiful Mewz!!

Daisy and Babies are past the first critical 24 hours! Kittens are calm, very healthy and made their first normal growth spurt! Amazing how newly born babies have spindle see thru legs, matted fur and in 24 hrs are all fluffy fat little tummies, real legs and paddy paws! Course their eyes won't open for a while. They're beautiful... I'm the Grandma, so I get to say that!

Daisy told me Tuesday morning to stay with her all day!?! She wanted me right there to help with the labor...She has been isolated in my bedroom along with little bitty Bootsie to keep big ol Maxie from bothering them for the past month. (Just like a typical boy -- has to chase the girls for fun...)

I slept in the recliner Monday night. Tuesday morn, Daisy cried at the door and I just knew. So I cuddled with her on the bed all morning til the contractions came close together early afternoon.

Long time since I helped with birthing. When Daisy started to cry with her first baby (Olivia), I instinctively took the pressure off - gently with my fingertip, Olivia's head to made it thru. The second baby (Bella) came out back end first - and is the largest kitten. The largest part of the head stuck. Daisy cried and I reduced the pressure again - Bella came through! The other three birthed just fine... After photos and a video of them nursing, I helped transfer Daisy and kittens to a big cardboard box in my closet!

Daddy was a neighbor's cat. "Wolfie" is small boned, long haired black tabby and a "Wolverine" face. Four of the kittens will be smaller like him and are shades of light to medium grey and may have long hair. Bella has Daisy's long waist and brown tabbiness with a bit of copper on her face. Seems there are 2 boys, 3 girls. My photo and video equipment is old tech. Will post photos when developed, hopefully next week. I need to copy the video to DVD for uploading.

Except for Bella, named for the movie abt a waitress unexpectantly pregnant, I picked names from Law And Order: SVU - Olivia (Mariska Hargitay), Harlee (Richard Belzer's wife), Elliott (Chris Meloni) and Munch (Richard Belzer). I will be contacting two local no kill orgs to help me with forever homes.

My main concern now: during labor, the birth canal did not stretch at first and there may have been some tearing with the first two kittens. She's not running any fever and I am giving her extra vitamins, Kitten Chow and glucosamine.

I want to have Indian Hills Vet check Mom and babies though - the appointment runs about $65.00.

I'm also worried about Bootsie. She slept on the edge of the bed and didn't bother Daisy and I until all the kttens were born. Then I had to put her out of the bedroom, because she started growling...

Funny thing, later out in the living room - she found a fuzzy white mouse and started carryin it around like it was her kitten! So in her own little way, she figured it out.

Yet, Bootsie won't hardly eat anything except Temptations and she's been all wound up hormonally for days. Normally a very small cat, just under five pounds. Big Maxie who is a chubby 15 pounds keeps chasing her...(I am looking into a forever home for him. He is so quiet, sweet and fiesty playful...just too much of a handful!)

Bootsie needs to be checked out before being spayed to make sure she hasn't lost too much weight first.

Hugs n Purrs,
Katie Kat,
(da noo Grandmommy)
