Birth Announcement!

Butch, the mommy!Butch is a mommy! I just found her under the stairs in a drawer full of old hair rollers. She's given live birth to one tuxy style kitten, and we believe she's still in labor and that more kittens are on the way. I'll put up pix later after she's done with labor and delivery. This makes me an aunt. :)


Babies have these markings.Update: 19:58
That makes two! The second one looks like the first, tuxy style like Floyd. No, Floyd is not the daddy. Floyd can't be the daddy. The likely candidates are this shorthair black cat I call Shadow or a longhair charcoal cat I call Smokey.


Update: 22:02
Still only two, and on closer inspection, the second has quite a bit of calico in her, but mostly tuxy style. There are more on the way, but these things take time. I'm open to suggestions for names, but technically they're Patti's to name. The first is of unknown sex, but the second has to be female.

oh hooray!!!

That is wonderful. I'm glad to hear that Butch gets to be a mommy!

and you never know about the daddy...my friend Jeannie's cat (all black) had a litter of kittens of every color and hair length. ONly one cat could have been the daddy (they were indoor cats) and he was all black too. So...where did the orange one come from? Hmmm.

Recessive genes? Cats are weird like that. Manx cats give birth to half-Manx cats with extra long tails. I think it's because cats are magical creatures and defy the laws of genetic inheritance.
