If I have learned anything in my life, it’s to expect the unexpected.
Last night my cat Abbey had kittens! There are 4 of them, soo adorable you just can’t believe it. I can’t be sure, but I think we have 2 girls, and 2 boys.
Because she is MY cat, and this is MY family, there is a little bit of drama in the birth story. Abbey was acting a little bit weird late last night, and we figured she might be in labor. My daughter Cat and Abbey have been best friends since we got Abbey, and she decided to sleep downstairs with her, to keep an eye on her. Abbey laid down and went to sleep in her usual spot, on Cat’s leg. Around 2 this morning, a frantic Cat woke me up. Abbey had a baby- on Cat! She was a little grossed out, and a little mad that I couldn’t stop laughing, but she got over it quick enough when we got downstairs and there were 2 babies! We transferred Abbey and the babies into the box we had prepared and Abbey started feeding her babies and went to sleep. Figuring she was done, we all went to bed. Imagine our surprise when we woke up this morning to 2 more babies!
Mom and babies are doing well. More pictures to come.
