Weekend Cat Blogging

Our Princess of Fluff, Kelly, has a small secret to share.

And here, you can see the bump. In about ten days or so, I hope to show you pictures of just born kittens.

Meanwhile, Glinda and Ywette are busy suspiciously investigating the latest addition to their outdoor cage. It's simply a length of wood, but as it's new, it's definitely worth looking into. My cats are fairly easy to amuse.

I bet you can't wait to see those babies!!! I wonder where she'll have them - some people say that cats choose strange places like on top of that cashmere jumper that should have been put away!! I look forward to seeing those photos!

Jessika said...

Easy to amuse yes, but first there's the fact that a cat takes no risk unless we _smell_ what it is ;).

Hope all goes well with the babies!

You are to young to be a Granny! I know your excited!

The cats look like incredibly dangerous feline predators, kept in a cage for everyone's safety. One can really see the relationship of cats to their bigger relatives.
And I can't wait to see pictures of your kittens. Please take some as soon as they are born, if you can. I have never seen newborn cats? Do they have fur?

Sam, our cats are usually quite easy about that, and happily accept the box we prepare for them. I monitor them real closely the last couple of days though - I don't want them to be alone.

Jessika, true!

Glamah - haha, I think I'm actually a great-great-great grandma by now, in cat generations.

Anna, they do have fur! :) They're actually really cute right from the beginning. I have plenty of pics on Flickr - look here for our last litter when they were just a few days old: http://www.flickr.com/photos/annehufflepuffs/sets/72157594462656337/

And I totally agree - I do see a lot of "big cats" in them.

Anne - congratulations! I can't wait to see the little kittens. Kelly is so gorgeous and fluffy - what did the Papa look like? What letter of the alphabet are you on for this batch of little kitties?
Good luck!

Anne said...

Jelly, thank you!! This will be the K-litter, and their "family name" is Kellycats, so they'll all be Kellycats K-something. Or possibly Kellycats Golden/Silver K-something. I'll definitely need name suggestions here, it's hard to find something on K that's also a theme! :) The dad is *really* beautiful - I have a few photos of him on Flickr, see if this works:

Or search my tags for "morris". :)

your cats are very pretty!I like cats,so i have 2 my self!=P

Jelly said...

What a beautiful cat Morris is!! Oh, I can't wait to see Kelly's kitties. I'm going to think up some K names and maybe you'll choose one! "Kellycats Korea Kitty" won't work, will it?

Anne said...

Jelly, actually countries might not be so bad! Korea, Kenya...? Um, more countries starting with a K? Maybe we'll throw in Kentucky. :) I don't think she has a whole lot of kittens though, she's not that big and she had three last time. But we'll see!

Selfhuggingjack said...

yay, she looks lovely so I bet the kittens are. We have been looking into buying a cat ourselves

Maria said...

Oh how cute and what a gorgeous kitty! I love kittens and cats!

LOL - those two sniffing the piece of wood are hilarious! Our cat visitors are also too funny when there is something unfamiliar in the house - the other day Troy stalked the vacuum cleaner for a good ten minutes...
