First a quick intro! Mittens is a DLH tux, whom I was cat sitting. She went into heat while in my care. I successfully kept her indoors for 4 days! Then one night I came home from work with hands full with groceries. I open the door and Mitten BOLTS. I inform her owners of what happened. They didn't say anything. After then month was up that I was watching them, asked them when they were coming to get her... they said they wernt!!!! SOOO Now I have this beautiful tux with a bad habbit of peeing on things, and a litter on the way!!
I use to rescue kitties over 10 years ago, but it just hasn't been something I was able to do since moving to Oregon. I am terribly out of practice when it comes to babies. I feel like I don't know what I'm doing (even though I do). I've hit the point where I am just really excited about the whole thing.
I have lots of people wanting kittens, sadly most of them want them too young! People need to respect my choice of keeping the little ones till everyone has their shots and spayed/neutered! I may even include a microchip during their spay/neuter surgery. I haven't made up my mind yet.
SOOO Her second prenatal check up we saw 3 maybe 4 kittens in her xray! They also tried telling me I was wrong about her due date because kittens are big and she was going to have them. Needless to say she is still pregnant proving I wasn't wrong. I am just looking for a little support, and feel I have someplace to go for questions if I end up with any! Mostly I'm just very excited about this adventure that has been placed in my lap, and want people to share it with.
ON a last note, I WANT to keep mom, but between her peeing (she hates other cats) and my being SOOOO allergic to her, its just not possible
So I will sadly be rehoming her. However we will be considering one of her kittens to stay with us. We have 2 kitties already, and I wouldn't mind a 3rd.
