3-24-16 Throwback Thursday: Winter and the Spring Kittens

One year ago today, my very first pregnant foster, Winter, had her kittens! Since I wasn’t blogging back then (obviously), I decided to do a Throwback Thursday because I knew you all would want to see their sweet little faces.

Here’s the beautiful mama, Winter.

IMG_4089Pile o’ babies! They’re actually six days old in this picture. I wish I’d gotten a picture of all of them on the day they were born, but at that point I had neither a blog nor a Facebook page to post pictures to, and I was pretty delirious from all the kitten cuteness.

IMG_4069Petal again. Their faces are so fresh.

IMG_4031Petal again. I guess she was pretty photogenic.

IMG_4091Rosebud is the little tuxie on the left, and Daisy is on the right. Aren’t those little toes just the sweetest thing?!

I got Winter at the end of February last year, and she waited almost a full month to have those babies. I checked on her the evening before she had the kittens at around 11:30 pm, and she ate a plate of canned food and didn’t seem any different. And you know what? When I checked on her the next morning around 7, she proudly presented me with her five babies, all cleaned up and ready to face the world. After waiting for so long, OF COURSE she would have those babies overnight and not let me watch. 🙂

Mama Cat has been moved back into the foster room with the kittens. The poor girl is lonely by herself, so I’m just going to keep her with the babies for now and hopefully they don’t try to nurse on her too much.

IMG_6140Honey Pie on the move.

IMG_6193Honey Pie gave me this look for a split second, then turned back to playing with the track toy. She’s just the sweetest girl.

IMG_6201This loony expression on Sugar’s face made me laugh out loud.

IMG_6276“I think Cutie Pie stole one of my ears. Could you get it back for me, please?”

IMG_6284“Please, I pray to the Ceiling Cat, please don’t let Pinkie Pie blame me for stealing her ear!”
