Dinah's Mites (Di-no-MITES!)

Thanks to the Meowers From Missouri for their great suggestion: "you could call the babies the "di-no-MITES!", so little bitty as they are . . .!"Click to biggify the pictures.

Notice the two charcoal kittens seem very close, they are fighting for the same nipple. Also notice the little loner noir kitten behind Mommie Dinah's rump. This may be the last born that I found off by itself when changing the bedding yesterday, causing me to do several double-takes. And the little white-legged tuxie near her face is always near her face; Dinah will sleep with her paws around that one.

Margaret is looking much better after spending her first night at home in over 22 days. Her wonderful sister, Kay, is down from PA to spend a few weeks; she's been here almost the entire time. And Tazz is just blossoming. Kay had Tazzie's shaggy poodle coat clipped and she is acting like a puppy again, she's really happy to have three mommies.

Oh the little sweeties! Dinah looks so proud, there's no beating the look of a happy mother cat. Hope the little noir doesn't get left out for long!

I love that "di-no-MITES"!! They are so precious. I hope the "runt" is OK. I like the 2 charcol ones are already buddying up.
We love the biggified pictures! They are just as sweet as can be. Great jobbie ML. You too Dinah.

Emma's Kat said...

That is too cute! Nothing sweeter than a momma kitty and her babies, or in Dinah's case "di-no-mites", lol. Can't wait till you can tell which are boys and which are girls. What a good mommy you are being Dinah.

So good to hear Margaret is home and I'm sure she is so glad to be there! Take care Margaret, and continued strength and recovery!

Hey - da little charcoal one on da end (last photo) is doin' a Fully Monty!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Hahaha, one little grey one is nursing on it's back...dat is so cute. Is Dinah taking care of da "lastling"? Or is there bottle feeding in yoo future?

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

I was so busy petting the screen that I forgot to tell Margaret "WELCOME HOME!" I know that Tazz is so happy to have her Mommy home!

ML: You might have to do what I did with Brutus & Marigold. Remember that I would have to take Brutus off of "his" nip so that Marigold could get her share! Brutus and I would have play time while Marigold would "fill up"! Don't be hesitant to "rearrange" the little ones so that everyone has a "nip" for milky! Oh, I wish I was there to play!!!

Love, Deb

The SixPack or Dino-mites are cuties whatever you call them. Hope they all do OK and are getting enough food.

WOW! 6 dinomites!

The Dinah-mites are adorable. I too love the name. I also agree with Kimo and Sabi - maybe you should submit that picture to Monty's contest, to show everyone that some cats are just born to do the "Q."

How precious! Anne and I remember going through this with a mommy and litter that was born just outside a bedroom window in April 1991. My sweet but efficient (hunter cat she was!) Indy came from that litter of 5, and she lived to be almost 15.

And welcome home to Margaret, too. I'll bet everyone in her house, especially Margaret, is happy to have her home.

Now that's a clever name for your new little six-pack of cuteness. Dinah is taking good care of her babies, I see. Hopefully they'll all grow up big and strong. Congratulations again from me and all the Good Cats!

Daisy said...

Wow, those babies sure look like a handful! I love the little Dinah-mites.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Awwwwwww! I'd like to come over and help groom them. Has that little one in the back been eating? Our Lady says bottle feeding is lotsa fun. What cute little babies!

The Dinah-mites are darling. I hope the noir wanderer is getting enough to eat. I am very glad that Margaret is doing well at home. I am sending good thoughts her way.

Di-no-might!
Said in my best JJ Walker voice.

When Daphne & Chloe were babies, sometimes we had to take Galahad (the only boy) off for some non-slurpy time so the runt (that would be Chloe) could get a turn.
But she's a happy healthy girl, even if she is on the petite size.

We're so happy they have a safe place to nurse in your home!
