Lucy Lou and her 4 kittens are thriving this morning.
It was a rough go yesterday.
She had trouble laboring. The last two of the 6 kittens were born much later than the others and were dead. Kitty angels. Circle of life and all that.
But the 4 that were born alive are thriving this morning and
Lucy Lou is feeling great. She's eating and drinking and
running to meet me at the door. Then she runs back to show me her babies...
2 grey 2 black.
Even though I've seen many babies born, in my nursing career, it is always a thrill. This is my third time bearing witness to cats give birth.
I'll really enjoy knitting in the NURSERY room today watching all the kittens and their sweet momma.
Thanks for all the well wishes. I haven't looked to see if they are girls or boys yet....I like to stay hands off in the beginning.
We can just bring her pink and blue flowers.
