Howlyn Cattery - Our Kittens - August 24, 2003 Litter

August 24, 2003 Litter

August 24, 2003 started at 3:00 AM at Howlyn Cattery. Rosebud had been sequestered to the nursery for the last 2 days, and she decided at 3AM that the time had come. She got up Lynn (who got everyone else in the house up) and climbed into the birthing pen. She had a tough first kitten. It was breech, with only it's tail wagging on the outside. Lynn went in after it, as Rosie was quite distressed at the pain. After a few bites on Howard, the first (huge) kitten as delivered at 3:30AM. For the next six hours, (with a rest after the fourth one), the kittens came about once every 30 minutes. All eight cats are well, and Rosie is nursing all the kittens. Time to catch a few winks, in shifts.

As usual, everyone (every 4 legged house resident, that is) was waiting outside the nursery door to see what was happening. When morning came, everyone in the house got a special breakfast, including ham.

The first pictures are now being prepared. But first, the pedigree stats.
