Kiddy's and Sokrates' kittens are born on June, 11th between 11p.m and midnight.
We were very impressed by Kiddy, she was very brave, and it was only her first litter.
She gave birth to six big kittens (90 - 99g) sadly we lost the last one at three days...
I now take it for granted that breeding sometimes is very hard. The first litter is besides always very special I guess for all breeders... And sometimes, we have to let it go because Nature tells us to.
Luckily, Kiddy has been great since the beginning.
She has enough milk to feed all her kittens - and the kittens are always very very hungry, especially the girls!
There are two girls and three boys, in white, blue, lilac and maybe other colors. I don't know the patterns (tabby / non tabby, tortie for the girl...) and length of the coat yet (balinese or siamese), but they all gain significant weight so that's all good news :)
It was a mating between two variants, so in the litter there can be: balinese, siamese or variant siamese kittens.
