The kittens are 3 days old

Hi Again.
Sorry for the delay - things have been busy here. The Typist (Owner/Slave) hasn't had time to assist me -something about building a new house.

I hear human fathers sometimes smoke exotic cigars to celebrate the birth of their kids.
I much prefer sampling some exotic grass (see picture above) - much healthier.

Well I'm very proud of the babies. They have gained at least 16 gms every day and are changing rapidly. The two girls definitely are classic (blotched) tabbies and they are all getting more and more toffee brown coloring to contrast with their black. Check out the picture below from day one

We have also named the kittens Murlyka Alina (Ali), Murlyka Alexandre (Sasha), Murlyka Antonia (Toni). I'll put individual pictures on a later post.
Bye for now.

I'm a Poppa!

Very exciting news! Last night (well early this morning) the first kittens from Murlyka cattery were born! I now am the proud father of three beautiful tabbie kittens - two girls and a boy. The boy is definitely a mackeral tabbie - while the girls are currently looking a bit more like me (classic tabby). Right now they are so busy eating its hard to get a good look at them. Anya (Vonliebchens Anya) has really taken to motherhood. This is no surprise, as she is always mothering all of us. She is happily purring away and feeding those babies.

That's all for now - We'll try to get pictures to you later today.
