The Arrival of "Little" and "Big"




I'm proud to announce that "Little and Big" arrived last night by c-section. Mother Anya and babies are doing fine. Their interim names come from their birth weights - Big was 127 gms and Little was 106 gms (this is a pretty average weight for a kitten - so Big is pretty big). Today on a different scale at 12 hours old they were 137 and 118 gms respectively - both of them are growing quickly. Big is the dark mackerel Tabby in the first picture and Little in the second picture takes after me and is a classic tabby. The pictures really don't do them justice but hopefully as they get bigger the typist will improve in her photographic skills. The typist and vets think they are boys but its a bit early to know for sure.

BIG congratulations! They both look really very big and round, so mom, daddy and the typist can be very happy.

We are all very happy! I always like it when the kittens do well and these guys (possibly girls) are doing great!
