Toonces
September 7th, 2008, 12:41 PM
They are no trouble at all, its our pleasure to have them here, lots of fun to watch them grow, there is only one that looks different his name is Moo Cow :laughing: the kids named him, he was the last to come out and the biggest, he is mostly white with small black patches. I think we have 3 boys and 3 girls everytime I try to tell they all move back into the pile:laughing:

Frenchy she is an amazing mum and she loves when one of us comes in her room for a visit so she can wander around and leave the babies for a bit to stretch her legs, she has had no problems with us handeling them from day one

Awww Look at those little pink noses and pink paws,I think I would want six of them:lovestruck:

Toonces
September 16th, 2008, 05:02 PM
14+ I think we 3 of each, am going to wait another week to see how they develope sometimes its hard to tell:laughing:

Chico they are walking around like mad little kitties now and a real handfull but I adore each and every one of them, so fun to watch! Gabby and Pappa Rupert had a meeting yesterday (first time since the birth and without babies present he has not met them yet and I don't think he will as he is to kittenish himself and would be to rough) it was so sweet they were both rubbing each other and purring up a storm, they are true lovers thats for sure:lovestruck:

Gabby really wants to move them tho, she is sick of having them in the crate but its the safest place for them. Currie went bonkers when she saw mum upstairs and insisted on following her and cleaning her all over and Gabby loved the attention, she was rolling around and exposing her belly and Currie was having a feild day cleaning her and checking her all over (makes me wonder if Currie didn't have a litter before we got her, her motherly instincts blow me away)

chico2
September 17th, 2008, 07:20 AM
Toonces,it sounds like everyone get along,that's great:lovestruck:
You'll have to post pics often,so we get our tiny kitten-fix,ok:cat:

Toonces
September 24th, 2008, 07:28 AM
here ya go folks some new pics, they were 4 weeks old yesterday so we had a party in my room:laughing: boy are they bonkers now, I had to take one to the vet yesterday as she has an eye infection, I got enough meds just incase the others pick it up, also took in a stool sample of Gabbys because her bms are nasty:yuck:, won't have thse resutls for a few days.

enjoy the pics:D

Toonces
September 24th, 2008, 07:33 AM
and a few more, momma Currie really wants to get in there and clean them but one swipe of her tongue and look out:laughing:

chico2
September 24th, 2008, 07:38 AM
OMG,OMG Toonces,absolute cuteness overload:lovestruck:
They all look great,as does mom,she must be taking really good care of them:lovestruck:with your help:thumbs up

Toonces
September 24th, 2008, 07:55 AM
Gabby is an excellent mother, she is out now walking around while the babies snooze. You should have seen Emma's face when I brought them upstairs last night, not impressed at all but the dogs are what get me espically Currie... and Petey his head never stops tilting, Brandy on the other hand could care a less because someone else is stealing her attention so she sulked on her blankie the whole time:rolleyes: Toonces hopped up for a visit and checked them all out, Gabby is great about it I guess she knows they won't hurt her babies but Rupert on the other hand will never meet them, he is not even good with my cats he is only nice to Gabby and I swear he thinks he is a dog even at supper time he comes running and tries to steal their food and the dogs allow it:laughing:

oh wow. Incredibly cute. I bet your house is a BUSY place these days! And Gabby looks like a wonderful mother. Good to hear that everyone is getting along too!

It sure is we have alot of rotating going on. Rupert can only be out if my 2 cats are away so we have to make sure all doors are closed, also the bunny has to be in his cage because even tho Rupert is neutered now he wants to hump the bunny, not to mention all the litter boxes gotta really keep ontop of that, I don't think after this experieice I would ever become a hoarder, 3 dogs, 10 cats and a bunny is a bit much even for me:laughing:

I think we have 3 of each but am still not sure its so hard to tell yet if :the boys" have dropped:laughing:

:laughing: 14 yeah that is Gabby and Toonces thismorning having brekky, Emma was not present she was sulking in the corner of the counter because Toonces was hanging with Gabby. I may have a home for 2 together so that makes me quite happy but nothing for the other 4 yet, yes Rupert's kids are adorable but these are his last we took care of that:evil:

Its really hard to keep Currie away from them she thinks they are hers and when she comes along Gabby is like "oh thank god where have you been I need a break"

Mmmm, maybe it's Gabby who's the diva! Treating poor Currie like an unpaid babysitter.

Oh That's the one you're keeping! It is the same one with Currie, right? Or am I thinking wrong. Absolutely adorable!
I am sure you will find homes for the other two soon. Or at least I have my :fingerscr you will.
How is the search for Rupert's home going? And how is Ms Gabby doing? I guess your brother will be taking her soon. :thumbs up

Toonces
October 8th, 2008, 02:00 PM
Yep this is one of Curries buds....Rupert is still with us I thought I had a home but it fell through, Gabby is doing ok but still has the runs really bad, am waiting for the vet to call me back, I don't think it would hurt to have her stay at the vets for a few days on IV to get some fluids back, the kittnes are all eating dry, wet and drinking so thats not a problem. I feel so bad for her she is skin and bones:sad:

chico2
October 8th, 2008, 03:47 PM
OMG,he's so sweet:lovestruck:
I have no idea what lungworms are,or what it does to a cat,is that why Gabby has the runs??
I have to check back to look for a pic of Rupert,I don't remember what he looked like.:confused:he sure makes pretty babies,Gabby had a lot to do with it too,such a good mom!

Lungworms are an example of a parasite ("worm") that can infect the respiratory tract of cats, symptoms are coughing and trouble breathing, she has none of these but I took a sample of her poop in and she has these plus all the regular worms hence the icky poops so she is on meds for them all but her runs are still horrible so tomorrow hubby is dropping her off and she will stay on an IV for a few days, plus meds for her runs, they will alos give her something to dry her up so she does not get engorged, poor little dolly:sad:

Oh and Moo Cows new name is Floyd! ( after one of my favorite dogs from
GSRT)

Toonces
October 9th, 2008, 06:52 PM
Mastifflover thanks for the compliment but I think we are the lucky ones to be keeping him, yep the fam is huge now but thats ok more furry critters to love and spoil.

Chico Rupert is the biggest suck around. I do bring him in the house when all the other cats are away safe and sound and he curls up on my lap and purrs and sleeps for hrs, the only one he gets along with is Gabby.

I get to bring her home from the vet tomorrow but now have to keep her seperated from the babies as she will not be able to nurse them while on her meds, poor thing she will be so confused:sad:

14+kitties
October 9th, 2008, 09:40 PM
She may welcome the break from the babies Toonces. It's the babies who may be a little confused as to why they can't have more of momma's milk. They are doing fantastic though. They will be fine!! If you want you can give them a treat once in a while with KDR or Nutrience Milk Replacer. It's a powder you mix for them. They would love to lap it up.

You, my dear, are in danger of catching up to me. :p :D :highfive:

chico2
October 10th, 2008, 06:42 AM
Toonces,I think Gabby will be happy just to come home,to have a nice cozy spot to rest for a few days and she'll never ever have to have kittens again:thumbs up
Not that she was not a wonderful mom..
I am glad Rupert the Casanova has a safe spot at least ever now and then and does not have to go hungry,thank's to you.
It is always a worry about black cats with Halloween coming up:cat:

Toonces
October 10th, 2008, 06:54 PM
:laughing: 14 yes Hubby says anymore and he is going to have an intervention:laughing: Gabby is home and doing well, she has already gained a half a lb but she is freaking and wants her babies no doubt to nurse, she can't get to them they are in a seperate room but she knows they are there:sad:. I have been putting warm compresses on her to help releive some of the pain for her she is quite engorged, any suggestions I would appreciate to help her cope with this.

Chico, no worries for Rupert he is safe here, locked in the garage at night and hangs out on the deck in the day time

14+kitties
October 10th, 2008, 07:19 PM
The "body sock" I made from the knee hi seemed to help the momma I had in here with her babies. She didn't seem to suffer too much. Just cut holes in for legs and the sock sucks everything in.
I thought they were giving her a needle to help dry her up? That must be so uncomfortable for her. Poor Gabby.
Other than that..... :shrug:

Tell hubby he's a chicken! :p
Actually, he sounds like mine about 20 cats ago... :rolleyes:

Toonces
October 11th, 2008, 07:56 AM
I thought she was getting a needle too but they said they don't do that, will make a sock for her today, thanks for the idea

Congratulations on keeping one :highfive: ......Floyd is super cute. :lovestruck:

I love the last pic of Gabby and Rupert.....you can sure tell that they are in love. :flirt: And, I hope that Gabby has a speedy recovery. :goodvibes:

Toonces
October 13th, 2008, 06:35 PM
Thanks Rainbow,

Gabby is doing very well gained another 1/2 LB so we are very happy with that her ideal weight should be 9 LBS so we have 3 more to go, hates her meds but takes them like a trooper. My brother is adopting her but I won't let her go untill her meds are done and she is spayed and recovered from that (yes I am anal:o but I think a change to fast for her with all that has gone on might be to much) She has also started fighting with our Emma but Emma won't fight back she just runs for dads cover:laughing: she is just worried about her babies thats all, she really adores Toonces tho and the dogs its so freaking cute

October 14th, 2008, 06:27 AM
I agree with Rainbow,the 2 of them together would probably make an easier transition to your brothers house(fishing:laughing:)!

14+kitties
October 14th, 2008, 09:55 AM
Awwww Gabby and Rupert!! :cloud9::cloud9: I know there is some reason that your bro can't take both. I think it's because he has another cat that would not accept Rupert? It will be such a shame to break them up :sad: but she will be happy in a permanent home. I have a feeling that Rupert may have found his. :D
I just thought..... I hope once Gabby goes Rupert doesn't go looking for her. :eek:

Toonces

My brother can't take Rupert because of his male cat Spook, funny thing Gabby does all the yowling and Rupert just lays there, I don't think he will miss her that much he has Emma to torment!:evil: He can stay here as long as he wants, he is outside on the deck all day and at night goes into our garage that is heated with all of his toys and a bed to lounge on.

I really wish I could bring him in but all the times I have tried him and Toonces fight and that is just not fair to my old boy so untill something better comes along this will have to do:sad:

I too would not do anything that would bother my Rocky,just like you and Spook,it's his home first.

Well Gabby has moved to my brothers house, she was getting very stressed here not being able to nurse her babies so we thought it was for the best. Here she is with her new brother Spook.

Look how big those babies are!! So cute!! And Floyd is sweet. You will have lots of fun with him. Toonces doesn't mind the babies? Just doesn't like Rupert too much, right? Not that Rupert is suffering. He is doing just fine! :thumbs up
Cute pics. I still love Spooks eyes! :cloud9:

Where's Rupert's pics? :yell: Is he missing Gabby? :grouphug:

Toonces
November 1st, 2008, 01:57 PM
Toonces is very good with the babies, infact he thinks he has to protect them from Rupert so if Rupert is laying on the deck and one of the babies goes to visit Toonces will stand between the kitten and the window. Toonces and Rupert cannot stand one another so Rupert stays outside and at night goes in the heated garage, despite his nice cat bed he prefers to sleep on the seat of the 4 wheeler:laughing:

Rainbow Gabby is going in for her spay soon, the shaved leg is from when she was at the vet on IV fluids, will work on some Rupert pics next he really does not miss Gabby he still has Emma to torment:evil: and does everytime he sees her in the window, man can she scream!

Toonces
November 1st, 2008, 06:15 PM
It was very hard trying to decide which one to keep but I think he picked us, he is always on our bed, very clingy and follows Toonces all over the place:cloud9:. Marley the little girl is a real monkey she will come running and jump up from the floor and land on my hip and she also sucks on my ears in the middle of the nite, Kurt the other boy is very laid back, we had a reunion here today Gilburt one of the ones that was adopted came back for his second deworming, when that was done they all toddled off into my room and slept together in their bed just like old times.

Awwwww, :grouphug: you are going to miss them so much!!! But you still have Rupert and Floyd. Those pics are sure sweet. You can tell how much Rupert loves his babies. :cloud9:

It isn't fun to decide which one stays and which ones go. :sad: You feel sort of sad to see them go but happy at the same time because you know they are going to good homes. At least you hope they are.

I am delivering a couple tomorrow too. Or if not tomorrow within a few days. We can commiserate together. :grouphug: to you and your hubby for the great job you have done with these guys!! (When does the new bunch come in?) :p

Aww Toonces,youhave done such a great job with the whole kitty-family,they all look soooo good.
Rupert seems to be an amazing cat,taking to the kittens just like that,it's not like he knows he is the father,or does he?
He is a beautiful black kitty,wish I could take him,but I am sure he's better off with you,in familiar territory:lovestruck:

Toonces
November 5th, 2008, 02:42 PM
Thanks guys we really do miss them but they all got really good homes and Gabby and 2 of the babies stayed in the family so I can see them whenever I want. The little boy that went last nite (renamed Herman) will be coming back here when they go away on their honeymoon and will also be coming here with his dad as we are getting some work done to this house and Hermans dad is doing the work so he asked if he could bring Herman with him so he could play with Floyd.

As far as doing it again we would always help a stray in need but untill another shows up (hopefully never) our house is pretty full:laughing:

Rupert really is the best kitty and I can't get over the size of his mitts! Now just gotta work on a home for him! Not sure if he knows he is daddy or not but Floyd sure prances around after him just like he does Toonces

Rupert is the bomb! Scared of nothing, dogs, other cats and any loud noises, he rocks! We adore him but Emma and Toonces do not, he has been neutered and fully vetted, all shots UTD, if you guys took him your uncle and I would help pay for whatever he needed, he truly is amazing:D I would love to have him in the hosue full time but thats not going to happen here this is Toonces house and at his age who can blame him, he tollerates the babies but not a grown male..... and Emma well she is just crusty towards him:rolleyes:

http://bestsmileys.com/magic/3.gif http://bestsmileys.com/magic/4.gif

That must have been some pretty potent fairy dust rainbow - he said yes! :D So Rupert will be coming to live with us, and now he gets to stay in the family!

He'll continue to hang out at Toonces' for a while though...it will take some time to get him here because of hubby's crazy new EMS schedule and we live 2.5 hours from Toonces so that makes it a bit difficult. The poor little guy is probably going to need a good sedative to manage the car trip :sad:

I'll update everyone whenever we finally get him here, and I'll probably ask tonnes of questions between now and then anyway, since I'm completely new to cat ownership! I'm very excited to have him though.....he should fit right in :cloud9:

Congrats Chase_Mom!! How excited are you?? :thumbs up
Rupert will be finally settled in his forever home. You are an :angel: for taking him.
As for meds to get him to you... not necessary IMO. I take all of my guys to TO to get fixed. It's an hour and a half there, two back with the worse traffic, and I haven't had to medicate any of them. He will do just fine!!

Again ... Whooo Hoooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I'm glad to know you've done long trips with your cats 14+ - I've been really worried about putting him through it so that makes me feel a bit better about it. :)

And it may definitely take a while for us to get him, but he's got a very spacious heated garage at his disposal and lots of attention and care from Toonces. He'll have to sit tight for a bit, but he's doing great as is so no worries there!

We figured there's no point in making that big trip JUST to pick him up, so we want to do it at a time where we can stay and visit for a bit. The good news for you guys is that you'll get the benefit of adorable pics of Chase, Kailey, Brandy, Currie & Petey ALL TOGETHER :cloud9: :cloud9: :cloud9:

I am just thrilled!!! Rupert has been in the house all morning right now he is lounging on the step daughtes bed:D Toonces and Emma are tucked away safe in our room, can't wait to see you guys but no rush he is fine here.

Little Marley that was supposed to go to her new home yesterday did not, they backed out because their cat they think would harm her, she is a barn cat they rescued and not the friendlest (I didn't find out about that till yesterday) so Floyd is very happy he still has his little buddy around and so am I

Chaser
November 9th, 2008, 01:38 PM
Awww.....I'm really looking forward to getting him! And I'm so glad he's good with the babies, so I can still adopt a kitten later on (I want a tortie)!

Hubby says I am absolutely, without-a-doubt, banned from owning any further animals for at least a year now though!!!! :o :laughing:

Oh, and if any one is wondering, he will continue to be know as Rupert. I like the name and it seems to suit him very well :lovestruck:

Hope Marley can find a home soon!

Chase has only met my cousin's cat....he didn't chase it and tried to say a gentle hello, but the cat still didn't like him. Chase took off as soon as it hissed at him and stayed away! Chase is a wuss and doesn't really push his limits.

The shelter worker that used to take Kailey home at night had cats and says she is fine with them. Kailey actually seems to think she IS a cat (seriously!) so there should be no problems there.

We'll make our office available to Rupert for his litter, toys, food, etc. and keep the dogs out so he'll have a safe spot if they bug him. But since he likes Toonce's dogs, and I think our dogs will be nice, I'm not expecting to have any issues. I think that's what makes Rupert the perfect choice for us!
