    Thought i'd update with a few pics, i was really surprised one of the kits opened her eyes at 2 dats old :eek:.
    They are so sweet and Tia seems a great mum, running back to them at the slightest of squeaks when she is downstairs.

    For some reason i couldn't attach any more pics that i wanted to. The black cat is Coco and has taken kits on a surragate daddy....i dare not tell him he's not all male :blink::rolleyes::

    Hi Myanimalmadhouse

    You are welcome to Coco, he's not in my good books at the mo, he wee'd on the carpet next to where the litter tray is, i don't think he likes the fact that i put the lid part back on :cryin::eek:.

    Nah i wouldn't really part with him, my friend found him but didn't want him so i took him on after doing some searches on the lost websites in my area and checking for a chip. My daughter has taught him to do high 5 and kisses for treats, it's really funny to watch.

    He got really protective over the kittens yesterday when i got them out to handle & stroke, he does what the mum does and took it by the neck to take it back upstairs with him :D.

    My only real gripe with him is that he's in and out of the house like a fiddlers elbow with me having to open and close patio doors :blink:

    Coco look just like my big boy Firebolt (had to be PTS last year due to a heart defect) He's lovely!!!!!!

    N if you're wondering about the name, his brother was called Nimbus and my mum has their sister called Muggles. Can anyone make the connection :D

    Has your mum cat decided to move her babies at all??? mine are a week old and tonite she put on behind my settee :eek: she dint move any of the others, but when I looked in the box, 3 of them were lined up at one side, while mum and the last baby were at the other side of the box, any idea wot might be going on???

    PLEASE do not let this cat anywhere near your queen and her young :( If he is going outside he could bring any number of sicknesses in to the queen and her young.

    He shouldn't be near them anyway, but seriously that's a massive risk to your queen and her kittens!

    Arg, i never actually thought of that :eek:. It was just that Tia and Coco are so close and Coke really did miss playing with Tia while she was pregnant that i didn't think anything of it :eek:.

    Thanks Aurelia :001_smile:.

    Hi Loz83

    I had been watching your posts and was wondering whos babies would be born 1st, mine are only a day or 2 older than yours:p ;), i saw you pics and they are so sweet :D.

    Tia hasn't tried moving her kits at all so i guess she feels safe where they are.

    Have you tried asking that question on a seperate thread at all?

    Hope all is well with them all.

    Well cats will always let their slaves know their place ;)
    Love the fact that he is acting as surrogate daddy though, and it's nice that mum feels comfortable enough with him to have him so close to her babies!

    To be honest as long as Tia and Coco are both up to date on their vaccs then its not really much of a bigger risk unless you have been completely steralising everyone and everything that comes into the house every time.

    Mum, Coco and kittens all look happy and healthy from the pictures and being as they are so close it may actually upset mum to seperate them at this point.

    I'd say use your instincts and if they seem happy as they are then leave them to it and just intervene if either mum or the kittens seem distressed or if coco starts to change his behaviour.

    At the moment Coco's behaviour is of a typical protector which is why he is constantly in and out. He wants to stay by mum and kittens but he also needs to keep checking the perimeter to make sure nothing is trying to get into their territory x

    She hasn't tried it again since, although they did have a low weight gain yesterday, but another member suggested that it might be the heat. wondered if that was maybe y she was trying to move them, might have been a bit warm for her in the kitchen, she seems fine now tho, changed all her bedding again and she settled straight down with them :)

    yours are beautiful too :) a couple of mine have just started opening their eyes :)

    hope all is well with your litter too :D

    :(I'm sorry but that's dangerous advice. No Vaccine is 100% effective. Also a cat going out is more likely to have contact with other sick cats than a human going out.

    So maybe the best advice would actually be to let them stay together but stop Coco from going out?

    I would seriously not upset mum without due cause though and they seem quite contented the way they are x
