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!
