Pickles and the babies

May 13th, 2009, 11:21 AM
Well, we have been feeding a stray cat in our neighbourhood that we named Pickles - we encountered her when she was just a kitten in August, and she spent Mother's day having her own kittens in our garage.. Only two out of the three kittens made it,. :sad: We've nicknamed them Gherkin and Dill. (get it? get it?)

These really aren't the best pics, but they were the best I could do at the time - more to follow!

Right after Gherkin was born (he/she was almost born on my foot!)

and here's one of the two kittens - Gherkin and Dill. Again, I'll take better pics soon.. Pickles is very open to us going near them and touching them, so that's a plus! She keeps them in a drawer in our garage - we close it when we're not in there to give them some privacy :)

And here's a movie we took right after Gherkin was born - not sure if you can even see the kitten - it was late!

What a lucky little girl to have found both you and your FH. :cloud9: The babies are adorable. So sad the third didn't make it. :rip: little :angel:.
And speaking of angels......... you sure are one!! :grouphug: Thank you for what you are doing to help these kits.

And I love the names too!

They are super cute.. right now the orange one is Gherkin and the black one is Dill. The names might change - but I'm glad you like them :laughing:

I'll try and take a few more tonight now that they are a little more mobile - their eyes haven't opened yet, but my FH is already convinced that they are both boys.. I think it's too early to tell, but whatever :rolleyes:
