Cats n kittens

hewoo all
this is called Bears catching up on blog entries well this is over a year ago. Most know of the cat who adopted us and was a kinda wild but tamed beautifully, but of course as is the way of these things she was PREGNANT.----NO!! ---- I hear you all say ----- of course she was----it took us a few weeks to get her to trust us and then to get her to trust us to let her in and out of the house, then knowing the date had to be soon well she became a true house cat. As can be seen here she was HUGE I estimated bout 6 and sure enough she gave birth to 6 wee babies, it turned out she had 2 females and 4 boys

The above are the bubbies about a week later, she chose to have the bubbies under the headboard of our bed and it took us a week to convince her that the babies would be fine beside the bed in their box. the next move was to the Laundry that took another 2 weeks but finally all was well and they grew and grew, if you look to the above pic you will notice the all over grey kitten far right hand side of the box this became Smokey the one we kept (thinking she was a he ---even the Vet had to check 2 or 3 times ggg). Kieron kept the other wee girl - she was the trouble maker of the wee crowd. Kirk kept a little boy (actually he was the biggest of them all then)  he was black mostly and has sandy stripes but is a longhair as well as smokey though different  ---he has the most silky long fur really very beautiful -- he was the first born and the most gentle of them all a wee bit slower then the others at times but has caught up and is a delight - you see I have visiting rights to the "grandkids" VBG

This is the tribe following the big move to the laundry, they were about 3 weeks old here and becoming way more mobile and of course Kierons "Tiger Lil" was becoming the boss of the litter by this stage, she had already climbed out of the box and in another week began to work out how to climb over the cat blocking fence that was supposed to keep them in the laundry. anyway they all thrived and were beautiful kittens, I have to take a piccie of the girl now - my "Smokey" these days I call her bubbs more then smokey - well smokey is more a boys name isnt it?? but have a couple of photos of the Mum who is now known as Bea and is desexed (rapidly done after the kittens were weaned) and Bubbs --all of our kittens were desexed the 2 up our home with the sons are in home always Bubbs also is a strictly house cat and Bea well its harder to get her to stay in BUT she comes in every night and goes out after her Brekky, she still catches lots of mice to add to her diet and is a plump happy girl and her daughter our Bubby is FAT contented kitten. When Bea comes in at night and they have their dinner and then the house becomes a play zone and the noise these 2 make while playing has to be heard to understnad how noisy they are but they are both beautiful cats and life around here has mellowed a lot more since we became pet owners again. actually no thats incorrect we are owned by the 2 cats arent all so called pet owners???

These are when Bubbs was very young I know I have another pic of her older but need to download the photos onto the computer - will do that tomorrow so for now you can go ahhhhhhh and isnt she cute, they both are really cute - when tthey are asleep gggg.

If all goes well tomorrow I will show whatI have been working on this week I havae a young friend who is about 6 weeks off having her first baby so being that she is Vietamese born and this year is the Year of the Rabbit I have been doing Bears on some little singlets and a grow suit for her. Athough I am asking myself why seeing how its been so long since I held a needle in my hands did I choose to do Bullions stitches and in Edmars Rayon thread???  Crazy is what I am calling myself at present crazy!

til then
love Bear xoxoxoxoxo
