I was out in the barn this morning grooming the bunnies. The kids came out to bring my camera. Caleb was playing with the cats and asked me if I thought they were getting close to having their kittens. He thought his cat "Q" looked like she was breathing heavy. I glanced over to see and sure enough she was in labor and VERY restless.
After her first kitten was born she kept dragging it all over the cold hard cement floor. We got an old blanket and transferred her there.
There was so much activity in the barn. Chickens clucking, Roosters crowing
Noisy and NOSY Sheep
We got a box and decided to move her into the other room of the barn where I usually keep my hay.
Only to discover that another of our cats was having her kittens. We gave them separate boxes but they insisted on sharing.
Its quieter in the room and Q finally settled down to have the rest of her kittens.
Our cats love each other very much.
We have one more cat who looks like she is expecting.
Normally cats don't stay around long on our place. With all the wooded area, they seem to "disappear" But the 5 we have now have been around for almost a year. I think that they will be paying a visit to the vet very soon!
