Our Cat is a Momma


Our sweet kitty Chloe is a Momma! Yesterday she gave birth to 8 babies! One was stillborn, having died in the womb, it was not fully developed. As best we can tell there are 5 males and 2 females. My girls have, of course, named them all. Here are their names in birth order; Charlie, Lola, Scout, Colin, Lizzie, Mr. Darcy (also known as Fitzwilliam) and Mr. Knightley.
Chloe is an excellent Momma and they are all doing very well.
I am so proud of my girls who took such good care of Chloe yesterday, helping cut the umbilical cords, when Chloe wouldn't, and helping to clean their faces so that they could breathe better. Lindsay wrote everything down, who was born when, their coloring and markings, etc. They asked "does this count for science?"
There is never a boring, dull day around here!
