My Zoey had her kittens...


Well I am pleased to announce that our family has just grown by 4 new members. Our cat Zoey had her kittens on Monday night. I have loved Zoey since the minute I saw her in the pet store. Her coloring is beautiful but that's not just it. There was something about her that just tugged on my heart and I had to have her. Zoey has been my constant companion - there with me when times are good or bad. Always at my side. She ripped the window screen a couple of months ago and ran away - came home pregnant. At first I was ticked because I had only wanted her to be an indoor cat and I did not want more cats but as she grew and I watched her change I developed a whole new appreciation for her. In front of my eyes she was becoming a little mommy with living things moving inside her. it was almost magical watching her grow and change. I have a whole new appreciation for her after watching her give birth. She did so good and instantly took to mothering the kittens. There are 4 new kittens in all - one with her coloring on the back with white around her front legs, one is a beige-orange color, one black with white around it's nose and white stripes across it's back and one that is mostly black with a little white. They are so adorable, so tiny... so beautiful. My girls are so excited and have been asking non-stop when they can play with the kittens. They have each already picked the one they are keeping and have already named them. I told the girls that they could each keep one and that we would give the others away to good homes. Each moment I watch them though, I fall in love with each and every one of them. I think by the end it may be almost impossible to give any away. I thought I loved Zoey so much already but now I love her even more - I love seeing her in the role of mommy.

Congrats! I didn't realize you also had a tortie! That explains why Zoey is so awesome. :) The kittens are adorable. I can't imagine how hard it will be to keep just one.
