Finally we have some kittens on the way

Very pregnant Siamese cat

After much delay, we are extremely excited to announce that our latest litter is due in a few days.

Sorry to disappoint, bit as we have had so many enquiries, all the kittens in this litter are spoken for.

Litter D - Week 1

Newborn Old-style Siamese kittens with their mother

Lola produced six kittens on Monday.

All six kittens and Lola are doing fine despite Lola being unsettled by all the fireworks that were let off this past week. I will be making sure that in future I never have a litter due during bonfire week.

Litter D - Week 2

2 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

Lola's little fuzzballs are growing nicely.

Their eyes have all opened and their coordination is improving by the day! They are beginning to explore their surroundings and are very inquisitive when they hear movement or sounds nearby.

Litter D - Week 3

3 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

We intoduced the kittens to Honey (our ShihTzu) and Pink (their older sister) this week.

Pink has had us in hysterics - after a couple of weeks of her being terrified of the little mews coming from my bedroom, she has realised that they are kittens and has decided that they need a second mummy.

She hasn't left them alone since, mothering them constantly. She looks very left out while they have their feeds. Fortunately Lola and the kittens seem to like having her there.

Litter D - Week 4

4 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

We have moved the kittens downstairs this week so that they can get used to the hustle and bustle of household activity. They have adjusted well to the move, and are enjoying being part of the action. If they hear your voice they all come running to say hello.

I have also introduced the kittens to kitten food, they aren't keen on eating yet but know from past experience that they will all be eating within the week.

Litter D - Week 5

5 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

These kittens have really been well loved, Pink and Lola both dote on them constantly and they are never without 'adult' supervision.

They are growing nicely. they are all now eating solids and know how to use the litter box. I am always amazed how they instictively know what to do.

Litter D - Week 6

6 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

The kittens had a ball playing with their Christmas presents.

This is a very strange litter indeed, I was expecting baubles to go flying but they didn't even acknowledge the Christmas tree.

Litter D - Week 8

8 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

There is nothing on earth better for the soul than a lap full of kittens.

I believe they feel the same way. You cant sit down for long without these little ones finding a spot on your lap.

Litter D - Week 11

11 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

These precious kittens had their vet check and first vaccinations on the 8th January. They handled their first visit to the vet very well, and there have been no nasty side effects from their vaccinations.

They are all bulking out nicely now that they are no longer snacking on their mothers milk all day long.

The magic gender fairy has visited and one of our boys has 'magically' lost his bits! It appears we now have 2 girls and 4 boys, and not the 5 boys I thought we had.

Litter D - Week 12

12 week old Old-style Siamese kittens

The kittens had their 2nd vaccinnations and microchips done this week. They will be ready to go to their forever homes next weekend.

The last week is always bittersweet. It will be nice not having 6 hooligans haring round the house, and yet the house will seem quite empty once they have gone.
