Thank you, no, no names yet!
Do you know what sex they all are? look forward to seeing them grow.
not yet no, i didnt want to faff around with them too much today, i will be sexing and weighing shortly though. they are all feeding very very well and mum is very happy and content, more relaxed than me when i give birth lol

awwwwww so adorable
awww so cute congratulations on yr new arrivals. keep us posted with pics love to see them grow x
at least 3 girls lol (torties)
The one with the white face.... has he/she got a fever coat too? or is that the effect of the flash on his/her back?
yes she/he has.
i thought so!
more pics please!!!!!! I beg you!
There have been a few threads on here with novices who's kittens are born with fever coats and often its hard to explain to them that the coat will change!
Its not something many people have come accross and so there usually ends up with alot of crossed wires on those threads!
hehe can you do a picture diary in the changes to his/her coat as he/she matures?
very cheeky of me i know!
Too cute :001_wub:
Sorry Im confused :eek6: what is a fever coat?? x
lol, i'd happily do a picture diary for you, no problem at all
a fever coat is the silvering of a cats coat. It most often effects kittens but i have heard of cases of it effecting adult cats too. It occurs when a cat is exposed to a virus/illness of some form (usually in the womb of mum cat). For some reason this can cause the coat to develop this silvering effect.
Usually this coat is just an idication that they have been exposed to a disease of some form, but they have already fought it off and recovered.
When they shed the coat will revert back to its natural colour! So if its a black kitten then the frosting will dissapear and the natural black coat will be back to normal.
Here are 2 pics from photobucket of fever coat in kittens. the 2nd pic shows a tortie kitten recovering from her fever coat. Her front legs have returned back to the normal black colour... but her tail and back legs still show the frosting.
Its a very striking and pretty effect in kittens, and ive seen fever coat kittens advertised as Rare, Unique etc.... all for stupid amounts of money, considering its just a temporary effect.
thankyou thankyou thank you!
Oh congratulations!! They are all so gorgeous!
