I will never forget when the kittens was born
I came up to my room after getting ready for bed. Ronja, who never wants to be petted, suddenly craved attention while purring and stroking her head against me. She climbed up on my lap while purring lowed and clear. I had expected it to be today, even written so here on DA "I thin it will happen tonight". While she was sitting on my lap she started pushing; I could see the little tail sticking out!!!
I immediately put her in the box with towels we had made for her. She sat in a "pooping" position, and tried to push it out, but had some trouble getting it all the way. You could see the tail come out, then go back in, several times
According to what I've read kittens are born 50% head first and 50% tail first
She jumped back out on the floor, and came over to me again. She practically sat in my lap when the kitten finely was born =^_^=
She seemed a bit clueless, turning about while the kitten was still stuck to her (by the navel chord) So I gently held her in my hand while she was still stuck, to keep her from harm. The mother seemed to appreciate it
After a short clean up, the second one was born. While she was cleaning up number two, sitting in a position that made the kitten unable to suckle, I held the tiny little toddler in my hand. It was so magical!
Before the third was born mom left the kitten on the floor to go in to the house on the scratching post. She then put her head out, looked me in the eyes and meowed. I know cat, she said: "Bring them to me?"
It seemed a bit small, she had trouble giving birth there. So after one more kitten I took the kittens to the box we had made for her. When I tried to take mom out she refused. But as soon as i got her in to the box she noticed: "Oh, their here "
She gave birth to the last two in that box. Five in total (two on floor, one in scratching post house, and two in the box)
I spent any and every available time with the kittens. I watched them grow, while taking photos and filming them.
I took many thousand photos of them, with 8 MegaPixl camera they take up about 50 Gig I believe
Thats why, many months later, I'm still capable of putting up great kitten photos you have yet to see.
I generally pick a week (I have sorted the photos on weeks old), look through the few hundred photos in that folder, pick my favorite out of many that I love, then after a post production in Photo Shop I upload it. Do the same with stock, just without any post production.
I have 12 folders, all of them has at least 5 photos I consider to make print, and 10 I consider making stock.
But picking the right photo in the sequence of many similar, the post production and uploading takes time, and i want them to last as well, so I only upload a few at a time (Once print and one stock a week lately)
All the kittens got fine homes =^_^=
But the weird thing is, they were given away from last born to first born, without exception!
They were born: Eevee - Muta - Duma - Sylvia - Sylvester
They were given away: Sylvester - Sylvia - Duma - Muta - Eevee is still with mom
I noticed that today
I'm glad they all got new homes, but I miss them allot :')

I got a Savannah Kitten!
I got my long awaited Savannah kitten this week!! <3 I have been looking into and talking with a breeder since sometime last year. While waiting for her cat to give birth in about a month I found this guy! He was the last available kitten in a tiny litter of three, and he is just gorgeous! He is an SBT Savannah, same as the kitten I was waiting for would have been. And since they didn't have a waiting list anyway I didn't hesitate to contact, and I got him! The breeder was so kind as to drive him all the way to me too, 5 hours each way O_o It was that or me flying to pick him up, and she wasn't comfortable sending him with a plane. He
