Our first of two expected litters was born
today - 4 kittens to CH Heartbir's
Xara of Golden Seal and GC Heartbir's
Redeemer. This group took a
LONG time getting here because Mom started showing signs of labour about 5 AM
this morning and the last kitten was born at 4:30 this afternoon. We almost
called the emergency vet when Xara had laboured to almost the point of distress.
A gentle nudge from a gloved finger seems to have gotten the show on the road.
Mom is exhausted and so is the mid-wife. These kittens can be blue or lilac.
Sexes to be determined.
