Our Kittens!!

Hi family and friends. I have been so busy this past month enjoying life. Our weather has been so beautiful. I recently stubbed my big toe and when it kept hurting I went to he dr. I figured I had broken it and X rays confirmed it!! Sighing. I have to slow down and that is a good thing. I hope to catch you all up to date on the going's on around here.
Earlier this summer our cat, Anna, got out and was gone for days. I thought she was lost for good but she eventually came home. We had been waiting to spay her and soon realized it was too late. I could not abort her. My belief in the sanctity of life transcends all species . Okay I lied just then........I do not like spiders. If they stay out of my house I will leave them alone. But when they make themselves at home inside then it is all out war! But I regress.

Anna delivered three babies.....in the middle of the night........ she was acting so loving and kept butting my face. I was too tired to pay attention until John rolled over and said 'why is my arm wet?' I immediately knew what was up. We got up and changed the bed and put her in her little birthing box. I had to put it in bed with me and keep petting her while she delivered the babies.
Nakiah and Sydne named them.
This is Sallie. She has attached herself to John and follows him around or sleeps on or near him. Every morning she joins him in the bathroom while he shaves and lies on his feet. He decided we need to keep her. Now we are a family with three cats!!!
Here at a few days old.
This one is Dottie or "dot'. She is afraid of her own shadow but is getting much better about being held. I call her mouse.
This is the only boy. He is Davey. He is so sweet and has beautiful markings. I think we have found him a home. His mommie to be will let us know tomorrow.

Now to find 'dottie' a home. Aren't they cute?

They're adorable ~ especially Sallie. I would've kept her too! I'm sure you won't have any trouble finding a nice home for Dottie. Calico's are everyone's favorite.
Hope your toe heals soon! Dang it!!

Sorry about your toe Catie!!! I hope it heals quickly and without causing you too much pain! Your kittens are adorable! I wish I lived closer as I would take one of them off your hands for sure!

Really kitties are so irresistible I don't know how you can decide which to keep. And so good for laughs. I love their antics. Have fun. Hope you toe heals quickly.

AWWW!! they are soo cute!! I love kittens! when I was little, I had a cat named Flannel (had her from age 5 to 24!) anyways, she had kittens in my hair during the night once! My mom woke me up for school and told me not to move for a minute, then she moved them into a box and I got to stay home from school!! Kittens are just so precious! (so are you by the way!)
hugs
