Luna's a Mommy!

Luna presented us with a beautiful kitten this morning about 3am! Must be a throwback to Melanistic Bengals in her or Komet's lines....or he/she will change colour later? Little gaffer is crawling around trying to nurse.

Kitten #1 is 101grams and appears to be a male. I didn't look too long and the room is still darkened. 'He' even mowed at me.....Luna wasn't even nervous when I picked 'him' up to check his weight,

'Meli' looks like he might be an only kitten. He gained 16grams in his first 8 hours and is constantly nursing. Luna is being a perfect Mommy....she cleans him constantly and lets him nurse all the time. She proudly showed him off to Mystik (touching noses with her). Luna was quite excited to show Meli to his daddy, Komet, this morning too. Luna's breeder shared a photo on our cats' FB page of Luna's mom as a kitten and there are some pretty dark kittens with her...so she definitely carried the Melanistic gene. Hard to believe our very first kitten would be a rare Melanistic Bengal! Meli has some faint markings on his legs, but they haven't shown up on photos yet. I will try to post another photo up later....the ones we post in FB all have our cattery name on them...not sure if that is allowable here.
