What the Easter Bunny brought….

I went to go help my friend, Emma, clean her house which she’s in the process of selling. She took in a pregnant stray last week, and we knew it might be any day when she gave birth. Well, she went into hard labor about 5 minutes after I walked in the door. 40 minutes later, the first kitten finally popped out. I did a fair amount of helping in the form of petting momma and giving encouraging words. I was a feline doula. A little more than I ever expected to do with my hands.

Five kittens in all, 4 orange and white, one black with a touch of white under his chin. 3 boys, 2 girls. All healthy and squirmy and mew loudly when they get too far from momma.

Here’s 2-hours-old One in my hand for scale:

And Two in my hand:

There are more photos here. Forgive the messy towel, it was protecting the carpet from the birthing activities.

Anyway, if you live in the CT/MA area and are interested in a kitten, these should be available in about 12-14 weeks. And Momma will be available too. She’s one of the nicest cats I’ve ever met. Purred all through labor, let us pet and scratch her. Lets us handle the kittens as long as we don’t take them too far.

We’ll return to knitting soon.
