Announcing Missy and Sopretty's litters!!!

Missy has had 5 kittens, on Saturday the 5th March, 2 girls and 3 boys blue points and mitted although yet to know whether any of the girls are tortie's yet. She is an old hand and all went well. However , it was not the same for poor Sopretty! She had to have an emergency C-section on Monday the 7th March. as she only had a single kitten for her first pregnancy , it was now well over due and the placenta was breaking up! So we had no choice, the little kitten was very weak and it was touch and go for a few days, but luck was on our side and after 4 days of supplementary feeding every few hours on my side and lots on motherly loving we turned the corner and the tortie kitten started to put on weight. Now everybody is about the same weight, strong and appears to be doing well. Sopretty is fostering the smallest of Missy's kittens a blue point boy which works well for everyone.
