N is for “Nursing Newborns”. I’m entering this in the Treasure Hunt Series – Letter N challenge Hunt Series – Letter N, hosted by the 12 Great Features group.
The mother cat was dumped in our neighborhood. All the people in our building took turns putting food out for her. She started looking pregnant around the coldest part of the Winter, so we snuck her into our bedroom. Shaun wasn’t pleased, because we already had the limit of cats that our lease allows, but we couldn’t leave her to have her kittens outside. The weather here in January and February gets down below zero Fahrenheit.
This is the last litter we will have in this household, thank God! The little tortoiseshell, the only one of this litter remaining in this house, was spayed, along with her mother, a few days ago. The orange tabby, who now lives with my oldest son and his wife, couldn’t be neutered yet because the vet said one of his testicles hadn’t dropped yet. We’ve had this problem with orange tabbies before. I wonder if it’s a breed specific problem.
The only changes I made were to use dodge and burn in Photoshop to get rid of the blood stains on the bedding from the birth. If you look closely at the orange tabby, you can see his umbilical cord.
