We are a big happy family 8 + 2 :D
I love cats. I love kittens. And then my cat gave me my 'OoomyGosh'-moment, last month, just a day after the departed of our "beloved" Michael Jackson (ok, technically, it was ON the day Michael Jackson died since we live a half world apart). Yes, my beloved Valentine, gave birth to 2 lil-cute-slimy-ooomygosh-i-can't-believe-it-happened-in-front-of-my-eyes kittens. :) I noticed she was a lil antsy when I got home from work. She meowed at me and brushed at my feet (I know the kitty loves me ^^). I was tired and we were suppose to go out for a last time together dinner with my sisters, but I put her in a cute cardboard box. Ok it was a plain box but she was satisfied. :D
After we came home from the wonderful seafood dinner at Top Spot, as usual we had our usual table, I came home to a distress pregnant cat. She was in a hurry to get those 2 lil cute-ness out of her big belly. Initially I thought she was gonna have 4 kitties (I was hoping she would have more than 2) but that's not the case.
She was in distress, and she was bleeding...at the bottom. I've seen my fair share of pregnant cat about to give birth but I've never seen a cat that is GONNA give birth before my eyes. The problem is that...she won't stay in the box UNLESS I'm there. o.O I wasn't looking forward to seeing the actual birth but I am honored. :) My cat, my baby, let me stay and watch her give birth to her wonderful now fat-chubby-squishy kitties.
I have pictures to prove it too. :D The first kitty was born at 10:40pm. I saw, I mean really SAW it came popping out of her butt. Like in a sack, red sack, the kitty is so small...but I bet she didn't feel it was small, comparing her and the kitty, it was huge. And I saw her..licking and licking, and (ewww) eating the after birth. (I don't know what it was called, but CLK said it was the after birth, the sack, or **temunek, as we call it).
It was disgusting, and I was reporting live to CLK...and by experience I know it would be awhile till the second one, but I was wrong. I was busy with my Yahoo! and my Facebook, poofff...out of nowhere the second one was there. Out in the open, to the world, to my beautiful eyes *batting lashes*. And it was clean. Hmmm I don't know the time of birth but I am guessing 11:20pm. :) They are booo-tiful. :D Like really. ^^ I am a happy mommie-kat. :D
Now they are about, 3 weeks old (they were born on the 26th June 2009, almost midnight) and they are fat and
squishy!!! Like seriously....I told CLK but he said it's not a good idea to squish them...*squishy squishy squishy* Like a rubber ducky :D. At first I was kinda scared for the lil one, I called Trooper, cause it was smaller than the first one. But behold, he is now bigger than its kitty sibling ^^. That's my baby!! :D
** I will provide pictures when I have them transferred!!! I am so excited! ^^) Now we are 8 + 2!
