Weekend Cat Blogging - Welcome, Kittens!
I was pretty much sure that Glinda would have her babies the same night we were having a huge, 13-course gourmet dinner. And indeed! Halfway into the evening, right in time for the cheese course, she started. And we ended up with four absolutely gorgeous little miracles, and some very awed guests that had never witnessed a kitten birth before.
Here's a first picture of them. You can't see very well, but there are two black and white boys, a brownspotted and white boy and a brownspotted girl, just like mommy. Glinda is doing very well and is happy with her new role.
Names? These will all start with a J, and I like to have a good theme. We're thinking candy (Junior Mint, Jolly Rancher, Jelly Belly, Jujubes), whisky (Jim Beam, Johnny Walker, Jack(ie) Daniels, Jameson) or Shakespeare characters (after all, they are born on Twelth Night - Jupiter, Jamy, Juno and... we're not sure.).
But any suggestions are very welcome! :)
