Itty Bitty Kitty Committee

My beautiful cat Marilyn gave birth to her 4 gorgeous kittens on the afternoon of Wednesday May 19th 2010.

This was her first (and final) litter.

Of course, I’d be in there taking pictures :)
She decided to have them on my bed. Her water broke on my duvet comforter, and I quickly got her in a box in the same spot. The first kitten was born breach, and it scared us alot. My sister and I, and a friend of mine, Andrei, were all there for the first one. We called the vet and they talked us through until the little one came out safely. Momma was scared, and didn’t know what to do with the poor thing. They had a good hour to bond, and thankfully Marilyn took to the kitten within about 10 minutes or so. The second one I’m assuming came easy, as I missed it while I had the puppy outside for a bathroom break. Andrei got to see the second one born. My sister had already left for work by then. By the time the third one was on its way, It was just me there. Baby 3 was breach also, but with a little help from me and momma’s pushing, #3 was born within minutes. The 4th came out fairly quickly and within a short while, all babies were cleaned and nursing.. and Marilyn was purring away, feeling the relief of finally getting them out.

3 of the 4 are calico kittens. I’m told that 90% of calico’s are female, and males are very rare and very expensive do to the fact they are sterile. Baby #3 was the only one that was different from the rest, as it is all orange with a white necklace :)

so far, it’s day 3 of the kittens and momma, and they are all doing just great!
Here are photos for you all to see! I just love them!
