Is that third kitten okay? The cord shouldn't be attached that long. Glad to hear they arrived. You must be so excited.

Do you have plans for the kittens? Are you keeping some...have friends that will take one?

I hope you are prepared to raise the kittens. I hope that you also are planning on spaying your mama cat right away.

Good luck with the kittens. Keep a close eye on mom because she could get an infection if a piece of placenta was retained in the uterus. There are many complications that could still happen. Moms milk could dry out or she could get a infection in her breast (mastitis).

Thanks everyone!!

For Bengalsownme:
The third kitten is absolutely fine, may be a little smaller than the others but I took them all down to the vet because i was worried myself. I have plenty lovely homes for the kittens and I'm prepared to take care of the wee darlings myself if anyone changes their mind. I'm also gettimg mummy spayed so please don't worry.

For everyone:
Birth really is the most wonderful thing there is, I think I'm just as proud as mummy!

Mummy is also looking great, she did so well and I'm extremely proud of her!

While the third kitten was still attached to the cord, another kitten was being born. We had a bit of a scrap getting the fourth out because there was a worry that the cord would be tangled and he kept sliding back in. Everything is fine tho!

I'll go upload a picture to show you all.

I'll get some better pictures soon but heres one not long after they were born. As for 'Spachino' my boyfriend named him because he looked like a mix between two of the last litter 'Spike' and 'Chino'.

What was the birth like Yanikin?? I know what will happen and everything. But what were your feelings when they were being born and once they were born??

Must be that time of year - seems there are lots of prego kitties.

I miss having a kitten. :( At least I had the pleasure of raising ducklings through jr and senior high school. They're adorable. Oh God I sound so gay....

I just can't describe the feeling! the first time Doodles had her kittens I was kind of scared , I knew what was going to happen and I was well read on the subject but when the time actually came it was just Doodles and me in the house on our own.

She was miaowing like she was in a bit of a panic, wandering around the house and as soon as my head turned to look at her I seen her squatting to the floor. I had the most unbelievable rush of adrenaline... it was actually happening! I could see that she just didn't know what to do with herself so I popped her onto the sofa with some towels. She settled right down. The first kitten just popped out so quickly and it was an amazing feeling, my baby has a baby! It was just as exciting if not more with each kitten that was born. We had trouble with the last (4th) kitten being born, his little head was stuck, the sac burst and Doodles was exhausted.

By this time I was lucky enough that a friend who is an expert with cats giving birth, came in and helped get the wee lad out. I was petrified but once he was out and was wriggling around I was ssso happy!

This time, Doodles had been out all night and knocked on the door to get in really early one morning. My fiancee opened the door for her and came back to bed. Later on I was woken up with a very loud "We've got kittens!!". I bolted out of bed still half asleep.

This time Doodles had gone straight to her box and there was 2 kittens. One had only just came out because he was still covered with goop. LOL!

I thought that I would be a bit calmer second time round but I was just as excited as the first time only without the nervousness. I must have looked like a mad woman because everytime another kitten appeared I'd be all wide eyed and excited, running around the house looking for Martyn then jump up and down saying "There's another one! there's another one!!"

It's the greatest feeling I've ever experienced! Even after they were all born, you get all excited about the things they get up to while they grow up. You get excited all over again once their eyes and ears open up, when they start exploring and it's such a laugh watching them play together.

Sorry if I've gone on a bit, i got a bit excited again, LOL! Oh, and sorry about my story telling skills, I've never been good at explaining things that have happened.
