    She has had 2 in total up to now,

    One all black, one black with white socks. I think that is the lot, the vet told us he could feel 2 about 3/4 weeks ago now.

    Both seem to be feeding well, i have had to ocme back to work now and have left my fiance and her friend watching over them.

    Will get some photos on later.

    P.S Placentas look disguisting

    Really? My gosh, i have been trying to look online to find out how you tell that labour is finished. Not had a definitive answer as yet.

    My fiance really wants a Ginger Cat so she's holding out hope for more.

    Here are a few photos of the Kittens,

    My fiance seems to think that Poppy keeps moving the black and white one of her nipples and is convinced she is trying to smother it. What should we look out for or what should we do?:confused:

    Thank you everyone for your messages.

    Both Kittens have made it through night one without any problems so i don't think we are going to have any issues.

    the smaller of the 2 (black and white) has put on 8 grams the larger (all black) has put on 12 grams so obviously feeding well.

    No not properly, i keep calling the black and white one socks due to his white feet but haven't called the black one anything, well my fiance has called it "fatty" because it's the bigger one but that wasn't very nice =P
