We are very proud to introduce Dharmas' second and Ulis' first litter! Dharma was an absolute superstar Mum and delivered 3 kittens within an hour. She is settling with her babies, so we will have more news and photos when Mum has had a chance to get to know her new family and they have had a chance to bond properly. In the meantime all seem to be doing well and Dharma is eating as if she has never seen food before! All kittens will be blue -  either Mitted or HM Bicolour patterns.

Pedigree

Week 1: All three girls are doing really well. Dharma is a really attentive Mum, barely leaving the birthing box at all - she even eats in there with them! She was very protective initially, so I have been quite hands off, but as the week has gone on, she is now fine and allows me to handle them to check and weigh them! As a result of all the Mummy time they have been getting, all 3 have gained huge amounts of weight - well over the doubling of birthweight that is usually expected in the first week and barely make a sound, they are so content. Right now, they either seem to be at the milkbar, or sleeping, which is how it should be. They haven't been named ye, other than their pet names, which we thought fitted in nicely with Dharmas' name! 

Week 2: Dharma is allowing me to share her babies now, so we are having lots of cuddles and socialisation sessions! The girls are still doing great, Dharma is still the perfect Mummy, so they are gaining weight nicely! Their eyes have opened in the last few days and their ears are now starting to come away from their heads. They are able to see and hear a little now. Hope is the adventurous one of the 3 so far and has fallen out of their bed several times already while she has been exploring (only a few cm drop). She has also learnt to scream loudly to get picked up and put back with her sisters! 

Week 3: The girls have now been moved into the kitten room to give them more space to move around, play and explore. Hope is most definitely the most adventurous of the three and is driving her Mum to distraction with her exploring - Dharma would much rather all three were at the milk bar, right next to her - permanently!! They are now starting to walk on legs, rather than the 'commando crawl' they they have been doing up to now and their hearing is improving daily.

Week 4: It has been another week full of new developments and fun! The girls are now running around, 'crabbing' and having great fun chasing each other! Hope still leads the three adventuring and learning new things. Joys' favourite pastime is lying and playing in the litter tray and then scattering it all over the room! Hopefully soon, they will all discover what it's for and use it for that purpose!! Thankfully Dharma has now relaxed and I think is enjoying them occupying themselves some of the time now! I swear she is rolling her eyes at times!

Week 5: The kittens have had their enclosure expanded again this week to give them more room again, as they are now running and climbing lots. They are almost there litter training wise and I want to make sure this is 100% before expanding their horizons to the entire kitten room. They are a little slow weaning and much prefer Dharmas' milk to kitten food, so we are just going along with their rate of doing things. They will get there eventually. All three are developing really nicely and I hope at least one will stay with us at Cwtchycats Towers as a future breeding queen! 

Week 6: The girls are now fully litter trained and have the full run of our kitten room, which they love. They have lots more space to run, climb and play and LOVE to climb the small cat trees they now have access to. Climbing is MUCH easier than getting down though, so I have to assist in that department quite regularly at the moment! All but one are now weaned and she is fighting weaning like the plague, but we will get there eventually - some just take longer than others sometimes, and Dharmas' milk is clearly good stuff! ;) 

Week 9: Dharmas kittens have grown hugely since last posting - both physically and in confidence. They love to fly around playing hard with each other and us. They love cuddles and climbing, not necessarily in that order and eating is high up there too! They spend lots of time in the living room with us now, which they love, and of course we do too. All 3 now have new pet names too, which we feel suits them a lot better than the previous ones! None are exactly shrinking violets, but Hope / Sassy is definitely leader (and has been since she could get around), she is first to investigate something new and not a great deal phases her!
