Wasn't it just yesterday...

when I speculated that my cat was preggers...

Sometimes, I hate to be right. I just didn't know how right I was!

Warning, the rest of this blog contains some graphic kitty birthing pics. We homeschoolers are nerdy that way.

If you are going to have kittens, why not get your heart set on doing it in the girls' toy box in their closet...instead of any myriad of other, safer, quieter places.

And then, by all means, give birth TAIL FIRST...I'm sure that's the way they are supposed to be born!

Everything went fine until this point...and the head was stuck. Good thing I have a little birthing experience myself, and didn't mind assisting a bit.

Our new kitten. Yes, there's only one. That's why it took so long to know she was pregnant-there was only one kitten in there. By the time I realized it, she was obviously on the cusp of delivering. Gender is unknown and unknowable for a few weeks, and the kids are desperate to name it of course. They want a Christmas related name like Coal or Noel. We'll see. They also are lobbying hard to get to keep this one, so if anyone out there wants to lean on the hubs a bit to convince him, the kids would appreciate it!

Pin It!

Wow--cool pictures! And a little gross too. Congratulations on your newest addition. I think the name Coal as a "Christmas" name is just too funny.
