Sometime during the early morning of Saturday, February 19th, our adoptee-cat Chirp gave birth to six little kittens! We knew it was imminent because we kept finding her in closets, under the bed and other dark and cozy places around the house. In order to prepare we had built a little cave and nest for her delivery in the “game room” under a desk and showed it to her the previous week, and she actually used it!
Mama and the kittens all seem healthy and are bonding well. She has allowed our other two cats, Joan and Julius, to sniff and inspect the kittens with no issues, but she swats at Banjo the dog and growls anytime he enters the room.
It’s going to be a fun 8 weeks before we find them new homes!
