IDAZMI SCENT OF JASMYNE
SHAKANDAH RICH 'N' FAMOUS
is almost 4 weeks pregnant and blossoming. Her tummy is starting
to harden and her appetite has increased.
Less than 2 weeks to go now! Not sure how many bubs are in there
but Jasmyne is growing fatter by the minute. The other day she tried
to run between the bars of the baby gate as she's always done -
but she almost got stuck half way! I'm sure the look on her face
said: "breathe in kids" as she squeezed through. Almost
time to start nesting and preparing for the bubs. Sorry Lexi but
Jasmyne wants the kitten room to herself for a while - your turn
Only 1 week to go. Jasmyne's room is all set up ready for
the bubs and Lexi has been evicted. Jas seems a bit bigger this
time so I'm guessing maybe 4 bubs? Only blue and lilac possible
from this mating so the colours should be easy to tell quite early.
I just hope I have better luck picking the sexes this time! LOL
The babies have arrived! Jasmyne went into labour at a reasonable
hour and has had 3 little bubs this morning. All good weights
(98g, 111g, 94g) and feeding well. Not sure what sexes we have
yet and it will be a while until I know the colours. Mumma Jas
is happily resting now, purring her little heart out as the bubs
These little chubba bubbas are doing so well! They have all put
on lots of weight and are today, at 4 days old, the weight the last
litter were at 7-8 days! One little bub is starting to show some
colour on the nose so is most likely a blue point. More pics coming
All eyes are opening and the purring has begun. These bubs are
going great guns and are already responding to me talking to them.
They are becoming quite active and will be off and running in
no time I'm sure! Deffinitely one blue point and possibly 2 lilacs.
All 3 kittens have passed the 250g mark now and they are getting
fatter and fatter each day! I'm pretty sure the Blue is a boy
and the 2 Lilacs are girls. Jas is such a fantastic mum.
Well today I get home from work and find Jas and the "kids" out
on the floor playing! It's pretty hot here today so I can only
imagine Jas thought it was too warm in the box and took them out.
But a floor is VERY big when you are THIS small! It was so funny
to watch them "walking/wobbling" around and trying to get traction
on the vinyl.
first pic is the Blue boy:
the smaller and paler of the 2 Lilac girls:
my favourite Lilac girl (who is working her way into my heart
finally here is the best group shot I could manage of the wrigglers:
I thought I'd try getting some decent shots of Jasmyne's bubs
set up the photo tent - Jasmyne jumped straight in and gave me
her best angle:
the kids came in for a play - but refused to look my way!
mummy left them to it:
light I was using blew a globe after about 2 shots, the flash
caused red eye and without flash the pics are dark and grainy.
out onto the floor for some more playing and a feed
(the bubs have just started to eat with a little encouragement)
little darling was too busy playing to stop for a meal,
and here she is showing me exactly how she felt about me forcing
so delicate at this age...are we?
my batteries died. I'm going to bring the work camera home this
week and hope to get some better shots.
At last a few half decent shots of the kittens! (amazing what
a good camera can do)
These babies are just adorable and are such little personalities.
They are all eating solids now and using the litter tray (sorry
no pics of that!)
seem to have only 2 modes of operation - ON and OFF!
Bonnie is the explorer and mountain climber of the group.
But even little adventurers need to rest occasionally!
has found a favourite resting spot. This boy really knows how
to make himself comfortable.
also found a super sleeping spot in the sun this morning.
here are a few other random pics of the bubs - I just can't help
check out the reflection on the door in this one!
Jamsnye's bubs are all growing up so fast! Here are some random
pics taken in the last few weeks before they left home.
has gone to live with a family in Rose Bay.
has gone to live with Marion in Thirroul (Wollongong).
Bonnie is staying here.
I have received a few pics of the "kidz" in their new
homes. Don't they look happy!
