The kittens are here!!
We have four and i think that's it, last one was born 50 minutes ago .
I've been watching her closely the last couple of days.I knew she was pretty close. So when she acted really strange this morning i took her inside.She was very vocal and tried to hide behind my computer desk.
so i fixed her a basket and put it in my closet with the door open a crack. she lay in there for awhile moving around a lot.
then she came out and had the first one in the hallway right in front of i just put a towel under her and let her take care of business.

first one was born at 2:10 pm, and the others came about 30 minutes apart.

right now mama is asleep with each kitten attached to a nipple.

I'll let them rest up for awhile and then I'll put them in a clothes basket in the living room.For some odd reason all the kittens look just like her: orange tabby.
Good job Bib :)

Getting close...

Here are some update pics of Bib,who is more like a Blimp right now:

She is starting to crawl into corners and under furniture , a sign of her due date getting close.
Poor thing can not get comfy, she lays here ,lays there, this way and that.
When she's on her side i can see the babys moving :)
Coincidental we are also awaiting for my niece in Germany to give birth any day now.Maybe they'll have them on the same day, how cool would that be!

Of puppies,kittens and a whole bunch of sox

Still not much going on here.We're just plucking along from day to day, awaiting spring .We had two very nice days the beginning of the week ( 74 as a high on the second day) . Got a couple of hours horseback riding in and just enjoyed to be outside. Now its raining again and drab, yuck!!
Well, enough with the weather report.
Here is a pic of Bib, as you can see she is a wee bit big around the middle.

When we got her i was under the impression that she had been spayed. Well, apparently not. That belly is not from over eating, there's kittens in there!
I expect her to have them within the next 8 days or so.
I already been asking around and might have two placed to good homes already . 
Jack has grown quite a bit but we found out that he is totally deaf.

So now i have to train him a little different ,which is no big deal but we'll have to keep him on a leash at all times unless he's behind a fence cause he can't hear whats coming . One good thing : he really pays attention to you and makes constant eye contact.
I think he tries to read our facial expressions since that is the only way for him to know whats going on. One of his little ears has flopped over which gives him a feisty look which fits his personality.
He sure is a sweet little guy. He loves to be picked up and he will sit on my lap all proud .
I haven't weight him lately but i estimate hes got about 4-5 pounds now.
The bucket you see on this pic is a two gallon small bucket and he is about that size.

He has a ongoing feud with the Turkey but he gets along fine with Skimpy ( they actually started playing a little ) and he loves the cat. They are living in the studio now and will be my working buddies once i get started in earnest.

 What I'm working on right now: another big order of socks .
Nine pair in all ,going to Canada.I've finished two pair ,working on the second sock of the third pair.
