I just wanted to share some shots of our foster cat's pregnancy, delivery, and her now two-day-old kittens.

This is Scully, last Tuesday, the day I found her in a parking lot (long story, I'll post that too :)). She was, and still is, very skinny:



And here's a nice shot of her pregnant belly:

This past Wednesday morning, I awoke to more meowing than usual. Scully has a pretty high-pitched meow, but this one sounded unusual. She had her back to me in her nest, but I reached over and felt this warm, squirming, wet...thing. Yup, she had already had two babies, and I slept six feet away without even hearing it.

Scully had dug at the bedding, and baby #1 had actually been laying on the floor. We held him to warm him up:



Baby #2:

We were not as lucky to see lil #4 pop out, and with his coat color, we didn't even realize there was another kitten, he blended into Scully so well.

Just editted your title. :)

Just cause some people might not have the stomach for birth pics. I'm usually fine, but just about to eat lunch - haha

Here are the kittens at just a couple hours old:





#3, who we had originally assumed was black, seems to be lightening into a tortoiseshell:



When Scully got up to eat, we took the kittens out of the nest to change the bedding, and got these:







And mama and her babies nursing:

Kittens at One Day













#4 (nicknamed Prince John) doing what he does best: whining




And this one is my favorite (so far)

Omg, they're adorable!!! I love orange kitties!! I wish you the best of luck with them.

I keep telling myself that whatever part of New England you're in has to be far far away from Worcester, MA!

*reminds herself no more cats :) *

Here's a shot of Scully nursing the babies today. Though it may be hard to see, that's #4 (aka Prince John) tucked under her chin, sound asleep. She's such a good mommy...
