Menemsha's kittens - first update

Finally, I am allowed to stroke the kittens!  (but not yet to take them out of the nest!)

Here are  photos at one week old.  All kittens have potential new owners lined up, though if any become available those who have expressed an interest will be contacted first before listing here.  Please excuse the dirty faces.  Mum has a rather greasy tummy which affects some kittens’ faces.  This will go at around 5 weeks old.  Their eyes are all just opening.

Sorry, no photos as yet.  Aiming to do some over this weekend and will post as soon as possible.

Thank you to everyone who has asked about having one of these kittens – we have been deluged with enquiries!  Im sorry to disappoint so many people, particularly those on my lists who have been patiently waiting, but as always have had to put those who have had kittens from us before first, and they are now all optioned, and those with options have been informed.

Should any later become available then I will post news here.

We hope to do another mating soon, for kittens as these leave us in October.  It will either be Pascali to George, where kittens will all be some sort of red – tabby, solid, with silver, or smokes.  The other planned mating for this year is Peggy to Gus, where, quite literally, we can have any colour as there is solid, tabby, silver and dilute present in both cats!  That should be an exciting litter.

No pictures yet Im afraid.

Menemsha had her babies on Friday night.  It was quite a traumatic birth, and she has been super protective of them since.  Initially it was hard for me to be near her, but she is now allowing me to stroke her, though the babies are still out of bounds!  Hopefully it wont take long, she is usually the sweetest, most head-butting cat ever, but her “mummy hormones” have kicked in, and then some!

Because of this, I cannot be definitive as to what we have.  Colours, yes, but not all can be sexed as yet.  Photos will follow once we are allowed more access.

I will not be placing options on any from this litter as yet, though if you are interested, dont hesitate to let me know.  As always, once they have been assessed for show potential, options will be allocated in the order – people who have had kittens from me before; people already on my waiting list, having filled in a form; new enquiries.

I *think* (though this will most likely change) we have:-

girl 1 – very brightly coloured solid tortie and white or silver tortie tabby and white.

girl 2- Silver tortie tabby, mostly silver tabby.  No white.

Boy 1 – red silver tabby or red smoke and white.

? – black smoke no white

? – black smoke and white

? – Brown tabby, not sure if with white or not.

Hopefully, we will be able to put up photos before too long.
