Pearl (MAYSTAREX REGINA GLORIANA) is coming to the end of her 2nd trimester and already she is the size of a cat about to give birth. She is struggling to fit her rotund kitten filled body through the cat flap. She is eating a substantial amount of tuna and crab meat as well as packing away raw beef and turkey and copious amounts of kibble.
She has access to the kitten room 24/7 and she is often found laying on the hard floor or upside down on the soft bed. No one else is allowed in there at the moment - she is a funny girl and likes her own space to dig about and nest in without any of the others intruding. She now won't sleep with anyone but Momma and Tyga and I have had to move into the kitchen at night time now - which is a real shame as sleeping with Momma is much more comfy!
Pearl is stuffed inside with kittens and we all hope they just come into the world healthy and full of vigour. In the small hours, she wakes Momma by standing on her chest and padding on her bladder. That is a sure fire way to get her awake in seconds. After that, she turns around, purring away, for a face and neck rub and then lays down for a bit of a hip massage. After that is complete, she moves to the pillow and lays right next to Momma's ear and her heart beat goes right through the pillow and they drift off to sleep.
It doesn't last long, Pearl is awake again, this time mewling and rolling on her back to have her tummy rubbed. However, she doesn't do this at the top end of the bed, no, she mewls and cries until Momma lays at the foot and rubs her tummy and she purrs and purrs and purrs so loudly, the whole bed vibrates. If Momma happens to fall asleep, she either gently bites her hand or mewls again until the rubbing resumes. It is OK for Pearl to nod off now, but being in such a vulnerable, belly to the sky and kittens exposed to the world - Momma is NOT allowed to sleep or sneak off and is harassed into then turning on the TV to stay awake, whilst she sleeps soundly, little snores and toes twitching.
I hope Pearl lets me in to help with her kittens, I LOVE KITTENS. And seeing as I now can not have any of my own, it is only fair that my Niece lets me come in and help and I might even bring milky in for them and help out a bit like I did with Little Lord Darnley.
With three weeks to go, she is becoming more and more precious about what she wants. Will only eat raw food on the floor of kitten pen. Will only eat tuna on the top of the kitten pen. Will only drink from a mug! And so it will go on until they arrive!
Bye for now - enjoy your week ahead. I am off to sniff out the turkey in the oven - there will be extra cut off for us and gently steamed. Mmmm.
Lots of love from Queen Vee =^..^=
