Talking Kittens!!

I know, I know. It is a 'dog' forum but... Kittens are cute, too!

My mom's Siberian Cat is due around Easter. This will be her second litter. We are so excited.

Our family is allergic to everything. Years ago, my sis got a retired Siberian and discovered that she didn't react to her. "It's a MIRACLE!" :lol: (My sis is the person who walks around with a tissue box.) Anyway, my mom decided that her next cat would be a Siberian so that my sis wouldn't suffer when she visited. The whole family was going to go hypo-allergenic.

Enters Anya. Such a sweet kitty.

Anya had seven kittens the first time! Wow. My sis got one. We got one. My brother said he didn't want one until.... his favorite was purchased and left to go home to her forever family. It was a pitiful scene. Mom and T. standing in the driveway, crying. So.... Mom promised T. the pick of the next litter.

I do Mom's website and FB page. I can't wait for baby kitty pics! Just a couple more weeks! I may have to ask Mom to send me a pic of Anya's roly-poly Mama belly.

Here is the website if you need a kitten fix. http://nh.siberian.cats.angelfire.com/ We got Bazinga from her 1st litter. My sis has Moscow.

TTFN,
Pam

I think so, too, but I may be a little biased. Our facebook page has a lot more pictures. We took pictures of each kitten every week so you can see them grow. I had a blast posting all of the pictures. I suppose I should go tidy up the page before the next litter arrives.

In case, anyone was wondering, Siberian cats usually have a very low FEL D1 enzyme/protein in their saliva. That is to what most people with allergies react. Most of the first litter went to homes with someone who had cat allergies. So far, nobody has had any bad reactions.

TTFN,
Pam

I am hoping that when the new litter arrives, they will be easier to tell apart. My mom painted the first litter's toenails different colors. Bazinga spent the first 5 weeks of his life called 'Pink'. Poor little guy.

There was Pink (Bazinga), Burgundy (Dimitri), Orange (Yuri), Blue (Tanka), Black (Moscow), Red (Maksim) and Green-Orange (Coco).

TTFN,
Pam

Lovely kittens,I absolutely love cats,we have 4.We had a litter 2 years ago they are more than half Ragdoll as their Mum was half Raggie and their Dad is three quarters Raggie, unfortunately their Mummy died 18 months ago due to an accident.It was such a nerve racking un yet marvellous experience being the kitty midwife!She would not let me leave her side during labour,she was a great Mum and the Dad our cat Teddie was amazing looking after them watching them, and stopping them from getting into trouble,he also washed them, and cuddled up with them he still washes his son who we kept.

Anya is a terrific mom, even with such a huge litter the first time out. My mom had to give the kittens supplemental feedings because Anya couldn't keep up with 7 kittens. She got so thin. That is why Mom waited so long before breeding her again. I think if Anya has a huge litter again, this will be her last. Anya is a beloved pet first.

Cute protective mama story:

The kids and grandkids invaded when the kittens were 5 weeks old. Lots of hugging and snuggling of the kittens on a Friday night and all day Saturday. By Sunday morning, Anya had had it with people touching her babies. While we were at church, she started hiding the kittens. We got home in mid-transfer... We got the hint.

TTFN,
Pam

Yes our Mummy cat Puella,didn't like it if we fussed her babies too much,and she would wash them furiously after we had handled them,this was just whilst they were very young.I wish I had some pics to post of the kittens but they are on my old lap top which one of my sons now has so I can't get hold of them easily.Looking forward to hearing about and seeing pics of the new litter,I'm sure they will be stunning.DH is thrilled we live a million miles away so I can't get any ideas!!

Oooo! so pretty... Is he a Himayalan? I am terrible at guessing cat breeds. I am much better with dogs.

TTFN,
