Bring Out the Babies!

Kitten Season is in Full Bloom!

On March 11th our foster, Gigi gave birth to FIVE healthy kittens! The photo below was taken just 10 days after they were born. Yeah, the photo is a bit dark. I did what I could. If you look closely you can see them squirming or nursing on their kindly Mama. She's truly marvelous with her young ones.

Next week, I'll begin chronicling my time with my newest foster, Mama-cat. She gave birth on Pi Day (March 14th) to three kittens. I don't know anything more about them than that, but I'm already reading up on setting up a proper nesting box, how to keep the room nice and warm for the babies, what to feed mama and so on. I have their room all ready to go and I can't wait to meet them. I've never fostered kittens younger than four weeks old, so this will all be new and wonderful.

Of course, I'll be posting LOTS of pix on my Flickr pages, as well as a few shots here.

I'll also take suggestions for naming the kittens, once they're here. I'm thinking about giving them names like; Apple, Rhubarb, Pumpkin. ;-)
