It looks like the new boys havent quite got the hang of things yet, Glori doesnt look to be pregnant, and the jury is still out on Tally, but it is seeming unlikely. However, Menemsha, the boys’ sister has been out to visit a handsome brown tabby with white boy, and we are pleased to say that it is looking like we may well be expecting our next litter around 25-27th April. Colours expected are brown tabby males and females; red tabby males; tortie tabby females. We will of course, update if either the others looks to be pregnant after all.
Not easy to get good photos at this age. Mum is being very protective still, but we have tried!
Too soon for photos or even to be sure of them all, but early this morning Izzy gave birth to four kittens. Two black and white males, one high white, the other minimal white. Two red tabby with white – one is female, the other as yet unknown, could be either sex.
Photos will follow later.
All of our kittens (see below) have now gone to live with their new owners, and hopefully, we will have some lovely photos to share on here later as they settle in. Our next litter is Izzy (Northern Lights) to George (City-Slicker) around Feb 26th. Reds, brown tabbies, black, tortie kittens expected.
Following that, we have just mated Tally to Jesse, and Glori to Walter so some interesting kittens hopefully expected in April. Too early to confirm the pregnancies as yet, but from Jesse and Tally we hope for black and blue smokes and solids, and tortie smokes and solids. Possibly red smoke or solid boys. All with white. From Walter and Glori we may get as above, but with the addition of tabbies too – so possibly silver tabbies, silver tortie tabbys, brown and red tabbies…..
Watch this space!
Please excuse the grubby faces. They are still needing to be hand fed, though thankfully can get through the night now. Taking photos isnt easy – they are either so desperate for food they are climbing up my legs, or covered in milk from their feed, having reached the age where they dont want the nipple, but are reluctant to lap from a bowl! As for solid food? YUK! no thanks mum! sigh…… we will get there in time, Im sure.
Some of the kittens are under assessment as potential show neuters, and the girls for show/breeding, so we are making no decisions just yet as to which will be available.
This is Isobel, one of Poppy and George’s kittens at 6 months old. Her owner has just sent us these delightful photos. We have two babies in our current litter with very similar colouring! (see news of new litter below) She is growing into a beautiful cat, and her tail is now fluffing up nicely.
Well, Glori is still keeping us geussing, but we dont think we will have kittens from her in August, as hoped. Remy is looking more promising for the end of August, and we are hopeful that Menemsha, currently away at stud, is going to be giving us kittens in September. We will update on here as and when we have news, and will also let those people who have asked to go on our lists know when kittens are born.
Our good friend at Coonspiracy Maine Coons (other side of Daventry from me) has some gorgeous Cream silver and white kittens that are almost ready to go. Drop us a line if you want her contact details.
