KITTENS!!!!

UPDATE: There are a total of SIX kittens. Found another tuxie when changing the bedding this morning!
We changed the appointment at the Houston Cat Hospital until tomorrow at 1:30 pm. We lost too much sleep last night to even function. This first photo is blurry, but you can get an idea of how the kittens look. This is one of the "noir" cats (thanks, Rose):
Here's three of the six, just hours old. There are two Charcoals, two Noirs, and two Tuxie Juniors. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SIX PACK!
Also, Margaret comes home from the hospital in a few hours. Just too much going on here!

******************************************

Well, Dinah wouldn't wait!!! The doctor's appointment was for 2 pm today and the C-section was scheduled for tomorrow moring! I went in as she was delivering the fifth tiny kitten. All the kittens are very healthy -- and loud -- and the little mommie is doing great. There may be more....???!!!
This is #4, perched on Mommy Dinah's shoulder (you can see her white whiskers to the upper right). #4 was still in its little bag making gasping noises, so I cleaned it up. #5, the latest kitten, is nursing. And #1-#2-#3 are beside her, wrapped in a clean sheet for warmth. Dinah is dozing off and on.

**Ohhhhh** new baby tiny kittens! Congratulations Dinah, and welcome to the world, newcats! It's hard to believe that Dinah is a mum when she's only a kitten herself. C'est la vie!

Well, Dinah -- nice job!
I guess she wasn't too tiny to deliver healthy kittens (but I know that ML will make sure that this is her only litter - if you need us to start a paypal fund for Dinah's ladygardenectomy, you just let us know!). We're glad the kittens are healthy.
Our purrs go out to Dinah & the kittens, and our continuing prayers to Margaret.
ML - you are an angel.

lots o' love,
Daphne, Chloe, Jazper, Spooker
and Not The Mama

We are most delighted with the new arrivals to the Sherwood Household! Such a Beautiful Momma Dinah is! We should like one of the little Princesses. Actually, HRH Prince Brutus would like another Princess around to Worship Him! She shall be called Ebony Noir, Princess of Middlesex, House of Myres...although, these babies being hours old would have to grow into such names, We imagine. Still, Blessings on Gracious Godmother ML, Benevolent Godfather Charlie and not least, KC and Missy!

Daisy said...

Oh, Dinah is a very good mommie-cat. Congratulations on the new babies.

I hope Margaret is doing better today.

Kelly Cat said...

Dinah must be wondering what all the fuss was about. She's a cat, and a cat just knows how to handle these things. Here's hoping all her little ones are healthy and that they all live happily.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Oh, how 'citing! Yay Dinah! Yay ML! Purrs for the new little family and for Margaret too! This made our Lady smile. (She's been sad recently 'cause her friend is not expected to live more than a few more days. Sorry we haven't been online more.)

Samantha & Tigger said...

Very cute! Yeah, Dinah, you had the kittens all by yourself. We are so proud of you. Congratulations on all six!
Your FL furiends,

DK & The Fluffies said...

Babbies! Must. Snorgle. Babbies.
