    about 30 mins ago i was going a wee as you do and heard a little squeak. Went to investigate as i though Dinks kittens had escaped again as they are getting around now. But to my shock it was Tiggers kittens. she had 2 kittebs behind my sisters chest of drawers. They are tiny and cold but breathing and feeding of mum so we have hot water bottles under them.

    Her first was a calico as she was drier and the second is mostly black white a white dot on top.

    Tigger is coping well and being such a good Mummy. Not sure if theres anymore

    Aw bless them. Hope Tigger and the 2 lil ones are ok. :)

    Do you think there are more to come? Was this a surprise pregnancy (sorry if you have wrote on another thread and i've missed it) or just an unexpected quick delivery?

    I love calicos. LouLou is a long haired calico and white.

    They seem to be doing ok. Well long story but i rescued her sister Dink about 5 weeks ago as she was pregnant and they couldnt keep her. About 2 weeks ago got a call to say that Dinks sister is now pregnant and they cant keep her either. After telling her what i think we collected Tigger and it wasnt clear if she was pregnant until a few days ago when i could feel them move. But i thought she had at least 2 weeks to go as she wasnt very big but how wrong was i. I pooped myself with shock and screamed for my Mum to come and help lol (im not very good with things like this as i panic too much lol)

    We think she may have more as belly is still quite hard but we will see. x

    I know its too early to tell but Mum is fluffy and the calico does feel quite fluffy x

    Blimey Ria, you must be losing track of Mum's & kittens now - your house must be overrun with cats (bliss :D:D). Seriously, well done for taking in Dink's sister - i won't put what i think of the previous owner.:(

    What do the dogs make of things?

    & more importantly, do you have somewhere to sleep in your pet sanctuary?

    Well believe me we gave her a few choice words and due to young children on the forum i would get kicked off if i repeated them lol

    Dogs are fine. They are used to cats wondering round anyway so a few more makes no difference. Obviously they havnt met the babies yet but they will when they are bigger.

    Yep plenty of spare room to sleep. Its cute as the kittens all snuggle up together and hopefully when these are bigger they will snuggle too x
