I had the vet checked the one with curled up feet she said its called twisted leg syndrome but it hasn't got it really bad and it should grow out of it. And minnie is booked in to be spayed in 6 weeks x

Glad to hear she checked out at the vet OK. The kittens look healthy and seem to have grown overnite.

Occasionally a retained fetus doesn't get absorbed and then can cause problems. So keep checking her carefully several times a day that she doesn't have any kind of foul-smelling yellowish discharge from her vagina as it may be Pyometra, which is a vet emergency and requires immediate spaying. There are other symptoms as well to keep in mind, as there may be no discharge.

Glad they got a nod from the vet. Some pretty kittens you have there. The one with the pattern below the shoulders almost looks like she/he has wings imprinted there. (third pic)

congrats on the nice litter.

Tashap,
Congratulations to you, New Mommy, and Kittens!
What an Adorable bunch!:D

I also agree with Catloverami, about keeping an eye on mama cat, just in case of Pyometra...
One of my employees, has a mommy boxer dog, that had puppies recently, she unfortunately, developed this, and had to have the emergency spay!
Looking forward to more pictures!
All Paws Crossed for mama and kittens!

Tashap,
If that one turns out to be a male, and a Torti...that's a rarity, I think!:what:

The male that we seen around our garden was a long haired tori cat so we think that may be the dad and there was also a black long haired male so not sure if both could of mated with her x

If it was a male Torti. likely he didn't father the kittens. As rare as they are.. they are sterile. The mutation of the color gene is on the female chromosome, which would make him XXY and sterile. XX being female and XY being male of course.
