Kittens of joy

O wow, the kittens are 10 days old now. A reminder of how time flies by. Their meow started to get louder. When they are not happy, they really scream.

The funny thing is some of the birds around our house sound just like them. So, every single time I hear something that sounds like a kitty, I get up and go check on them. I woke up 6 times last night and I am sleepy at work now. Better curl up under the desk and take a nap.

Our kittens are now 3.5 days old.

They are doing well. Each one of them is heavier than the ones in our previous litter. They look like they are going to be big kitties. :)

Lapa gave birth to five kittens

Our journey starts once again. Lapa was restless, and gave all the signs that she was close. We took her to her nesting room. Sure enough, she started delivering her kittens around 19:46 last night. It took her 1 hour 32 minutes. She was really exhausted by the end.

It's really amazing to watch the birth. As soon as the mommy cleans the kitten, she climbs up searching for a nipple. They have been feeding since last night. Lapa took couple short breaks and went right back to her duty.

We have a big job in hand. First 72 hours are extremely important!
