I have so much to tell you about and so much of it all gone and passed it no longer has meaning, but what does have meaning is the fact that six weeks ago, these little treasures were born to Flaire. My Big Sister has taken everything in her stride and accepted Motherhood with flying colours. She is sweet and determined to make a good go of things, despite the bad start she had with an awful C Section and then the tragic loss of her mammary glands due to necrosis after the surgery. Now, although very thin, she is coping very well. Momma made sure the 4 baby girls are being well fed and often to the detriment of her own well being. She is calm and kind as well as loving and careful with them. This is the only litter that have stayed out all day to run about as Flaire is a great Mum and caters for each need so well. Not like our own Mother Gracie, dragging us about by our necks and she even tore my throat open and I ended up at the vets at only four weeks old.
These 4 girls are so bold and dynamic. Their colours are fun too, not the usual sultry chocolates, but an array of orange heads! With orange heads comes fiery natures and VERY determined catwomen. Heaven help the new families! They screech at everything they don't like, like eye washing and toenail clipping as well as yelling when they are hungry. Oh my, they are a right lot. Not at all like me.... ::snigger:: well, OK, there is a bit of bonkers in all of them!
I can not wait to play with Pearl, she is the whitish looking one with blue eyes. Oh, hold up, they all have blue eyes this week. Well, OK, she is the least orange! Apparently she is lilac and orange with white markings. That will be very pretty as she will have pretty blue eyes too like her Mother. Momma always finds they are more delicate and squint in the sunshine, so there are lots of cat bogies around to be wiped away. Oh the screams, like Momma pulling their leggies off. I listen at the door, I know how they feel. I had awful stuff put on my bite marks, I screamed so much that day!
Well, I have other things to do now. I must go and terrorise Lillibet, she thinks she is tough, but I am onto her. One thwak from my septre and that puts her back in her place. She is SO scare of me. My Mum Gracie is growling at me now, I am so strong I think I am challenging her role as bottom cat! She doesn't have to defend that role really, but she really would like it if I was bottom cat and not her. Wait until Flaire and Pearl come out of the kitten room... Wow, that will be a day of confusion!
Lots of love from QV <3
