IDAZMI SCENT OF JASMYNE
Jasmyne is due this weekend and seems bigger than usual. She has
had 2 litters of 3 - but I'm thinking she might break her record
this time. How many do you think she is having?
Well, she's done it again! 3 kittens for the 3rd time in a row.....my
girl really must like that number! After giving Jas strict instructions
yesterday that she was to keep her legs crossed a little longer
so Eric and I could attend a CW lunch, she has now uncrossed those
legs and went into labour about 5:45 this morning.
born at 6am was 104g and I think a boy.
at 6:15 was 106g and I think a girl.
then took some time off and settled down to feed - but I knew
she wasn't done!
the next one came at 101g and I think another boy.
was sure she was going to break her record and give me a fourth,
but I've had a good feel and nothing more :-(
and the bubs are now settled and they are all feeding well. Jas
is purring her head off and so proud of herself yet again.
We have 3 very big strong bubs this time! All are feeding well
and gaining lots of weight. Cords have started to drop off and
noses are beginning to colour up. Looks like there might be
2 seal points? It's amazing how strong such little ones can
be - they drag themselves around and over Jas and each other
and they even have little fights, pushing each other away from
the milkbar! So wonderful to see the little personalities develop.
today are 183g, 186g, 155g.
Wow! We really have some chubba bubbas here! (Weight range 224g-257g)
kittens now have their eyes open and are becoming more active
every day. One even climbed out of the nest last night to come
to me! They are real little darlings.
has decided that the box I had set up for her and the bubs is
not suitable and has moved them to a location of her choice -
on the floor in a corner! Anyway, who am I to argue? So I have
put a buffer around them so they stay put for now.
These Furkidz will be 3 weeks old on Sunday. They have grown
so fast and are so active now. They are happily nested in the
corner of the room that Jas chose (which I have blocked off) but
they easily climb in and out of the bottom of the cat barrel as
they please. With eyes and ears now functioning they respond to
me and interact more each day. It's so lovely to see the little
personalities developing - but they grow up too fast! I'm still
thinking I have 2 boys and a girl - the little pink nose boy I
think might be lilac and the darker boy and girl could be seal
Well, Jasmyne's bubs really took me by surprise today. They were
4 weeks old on Sunday and have just started exploring the world
properly the past few days. Anyway, this morning I found a wet
bed, then another little puddle on the carpet - so introduced
a small litter tray for them ASAP. I left Jas with strict instruction
that she was to teach them how to use they tray before any more
accidents occurred! LOL
later this afternoon I caught one of the kittens munching out
on Jamsyne's bikkies! (Mind you he was also choking on one!) So
- tonight I have rushed down to the shops and bought them some
cereal which I made up for them with Biolac and 2 of the 3 kittens
went and ate straight from the plate - no encouragement needed!
The 3rd little one took a bit of coaxing to lick from the spoon
- the more "normal" process from my experience.
I guess they feel the time is right to eat and toilet like "big
kidz" - far earlier than my last litters who took some weeks to
do the switch. Fun times ahead!
are some recent pics of the little monkeys:
"Diva" - Blue Female
"Dash" - Blue Male
"Decaf" - Lilac Male
Well, I've finally made up my mind on the kitten colours (about
time huh?) It's so hard when you don't have one of each colour
to compare side by side!
the verdict today is: Blue Male, Blue Female, Lilac Male.
Male - Deposit Paid (13/4)
Female - On Hold
Male - Deposit Paid (15/4)
Jasmyne's bubs are now 5 weeks old and have become cheeky
little things! They are unstoppable!
Decaf is the cheekiest of the lot. He is either at full pace or
He is also a talker and I only wish I knew what he was saying
(I'm thinking Decaf is not an appropriate name for him as he's
deffinitely on something stronger! LOL)
Little Diva is living up to her name - what a poser!
And Dash - a sweet little boy who really won over his new mummy
the unthinkable hapened!......
They all looked at the camera at the same time!
Dash (now Harper) is all grown up now! And it looks like he has
it pretty tough in his new home...
