Well ive now calmed down abit, morning stress of trying to keep an eye on her but keep my five excited children out of the room as not to disturb her. This meant that not only did i miss the birth of the first 2 everytime i went to sort the kids out she sneaked another kitten out
I managed to catch her eating the afterbirth of number 4
and was really thinking i wasnt going to experience watching a kitten come into this world. The kids luckily were arranged to go to there friends for a few hours today so just before i dropped them off there i peaked in and she turned around to have her back end right infront of me and had number 5!
Had a bit of a panic phoning Angie as ive not watched this before and 10 mins after she still hadnt had the afterbirth so the kitten was hanging from the cord to her still but she had cleaned it of and it had managed to latch on. But angie said it was fine for awhile like that so panic over.
Then ran round my friends dragging my 3 year old poor thing, chucked them at her and ran back. Now mum curled up sleeping with her 5 lovely kittens suckling fine. There wasnt much time between 2 and 5 about 1hour and 20 mins and its been almost 2 hours since number 5 so i think thats it. 5 is great for me though cos my kids like to name one kitten each when we have kittens come in so no fighting over that one.
