Litter B was born

On the 11th of March 2024 Missie started to behave a bit unsettled. She was going from room to room, sitting here, laying there. I could tell, that she was getting ready to give birth. Although I expected the delivery 3 days later. My bad. When she was with Theodor, she didn’t show any signs of a successful mating during the first 2-3 days. So, I calculated her pregnancy from the day when I actually saw her having a successful interaction. But, it seems like, Theodor was successful from day 1. 😄

She settled in the birthing box and about an hour later the first kitten arrived. 20 minutes later the second followed. Then for 2 hours nothing. She was relaxed, nursing and cleaning the babies. Thankfully, we made an x-ray the week before, so I was aware that 2 more kittens needed yet to arrive. After 2 hours of waiting, she had contractions again and the other 2 little ones arrived safe and sound as well.

We have 3 boys and 1 girl. They are all growing very nicely. By the 8th day, they all doubled their birth weight 🙏

Regarding the colors: The girl is most likely blue tortie. The boys are most likely blue point. But 1 of them can be seal point. We will see. They have just started to develop their colors on the tips of the ears.
