This will show you what procrastination does...I was going to introduce myself and read up more on cats having kittens...and well, here it is, almost midnight - and I'm just introducing myself! And to make things even more exciting (as if me dropping in isn't enough excitement lol) - our cat Princess is having her first litter.

Yep - right this second. Right now! We have 3 little ones so far - 2 gray and 1 white and gray. (Mom is white and gray.) Princess was a rescue and we were told she was spayed...uhhh not so much. She was supposed to be spayed 2 weeks ago - but our vet had a family emergency and had to cancel. By that point we knew she was pregnant - and my kids were so excited, that was the end of that. She will be getting spayed as soon as the vet says it's ok.

We actually have 2 cats (another female who is spayed) ornate box turtle and 2 hermit crabs. Both cats are indoor cats - but this certainly explains a lot about why Princess would dart out the door faster than a greased pig sometimes!

Anyway, it's nice to find you all and I'm really glad to know you're here. I'm sure I'll have a gazillion questions over the next few weeks because I've never been around kittens before. I will post a pic of Princess and Crew once she's done giving birth and everyone has settled down. I've just never seen anything so cute before!

Thanks for letting me rant as I introduce myself! :thumbs up

Well welcome you are in the right place, there are plenty of knowledgeable cat people here to answer your questions! I do believe you need to take them in to the vet though to have them all checked over soon. Sorry to hear that she had to have a litter and I really hope you can find them all good homes. :goodvibes: And thank you for planning to have her spayed! Kids with kittens will no doubt give you plenty of kodak moments! ;)

Welcome to you and your increasing family of fuzzbutts. It's unfortunate that you were lied to, and i too hope you can find homes for the precious little ones.
