Millie is pregnant but Maya we still don't know. She wants to go to Major every time we go upstairs. She still pees in front of his door. I don't understand since I saw that they succeeded twice! Very odd. But we keep a close eye on her.

I do think that Millie is pregnant. Her niples are bigger but not that pink yet. I also think that Maya will be pregnant this time. I saw that they at least have succeeded twice;-). That will be great! And I succeeded to put my former litters on this new website! It is a lot of work but I will try to fill this one just like my former website. So a lot of stories and pictures.

Millie has spent some time with Brutus. If she is pregnant she will be due around 15 February 2009.
More about our cats/kittens you can read in my diary.

Unfortunately kitten 5 didn’t survive... She didn’t gain weight and I gave her some water and the water came right true her nose. So I went to my vet and they checked her and she did have an open palate. There was nothing I could do for her then to put her to sleep. Otherwise she would starve to death. This is such a downside of breeding cats. When you hold such a lovely kitten in your hands, you become in love with them right away. But never the less I am very grateful with the four kittens who are doing great. All four gained weight. Hennie and I buried this little girl next to her brother/sister. Thank you Hennie! Millie is doing great too. She eats very well and already used the litter box. Millie is such a great mom. But she is so thin since she gave birth….. I do think that four kittens is better for her. She will have enough milk to raise those little ones.
I took some pictures of each kitten individually. Kitten 1 and 2 are both female and kitten 3 and 4 are both males. Forgive me when I am wrong about this… The kitten I had to put a sleep was a longhaired female kitten. But I can’t tell for sure if these kittens have long or short hair for now. Maybe kitten 4 is a longhair…

Around midnight 1.00 AM Millie gave birth to 6 kittens. One kitten was still born unfortunately. And he/she was almost fully grown. So sad. Hennie and I buried this little one. So for now she has 5 kittens. I say for now since her previous litter she had two kittens with an open palate. But I will watch them very carefully. For now the only thing I can tell is that she has three kittens with a long tail and two with a short tail (a great length). Maybe there are some with long hair, but I have to wait and see. I didn’t watch them closely since Millie is getting upset when I pick up her kittens. So when Millie is feeling a bit better I will check their genders. And I can’t blame Millie since she did such a great job. But in any case their weights are excellent. Later this week or next week I will take some pictures of each kitten individually. For now a picture from Millie and her kittens and one of the kittens sleeping closely together.
