Kittens!  
Two little kittens, one black and one grey-black. Two others stillborn, which is sad, they were fairly well developed but she may have just been too young. The grey one had a little trouble finding a nipple at first, he kept wandering over to nuzzle at her tail. But he eventually got it.

With two stillborn, I thought about running all of them over to Adobe tonight, but the other two are eating well and Nameless Black Kitten is doing all the right things, licking them and curling up with them. So I think all Adobe would be able to say is 'yep, stillborn.' I need to ask Ambar when they should go in for their first vet visit.

They get 3 sets of shots, of which the last ones are given at 12 weeks. So you can either do 6, 9, 12 weeks, or 8, 10, 12 weeks. I suspect I did the former, but don't ask me why at this late date. :-)

Cheers,

Ambar

The bathroom! Which was really awfully tidy of her, doing it on tile. Though I'd think not very comfy -- she had them all over the bathroom, I went in and it was 'ack! blood! limp little bodies!' I thought *all* of them were still born for a minute, until the first live one started wiggling and I scooped him up and put him in the nesting box.

My housemate had actually put the box in there because he saw her and thought she might be in labor. I kind of wish he had come and told me, but ah, well. Not much to be done now.

I think if it hadn't been so hot, she would have used a closet, but she'd been hanging out mostly in the bathroom the last few days, on the nice cool tile.
