So "Ginger" is still not birthing those babies. She does love it when I pat her belly, and I think I might feel a flutter.. if so we are going to be doing this for a while - and OMG I bet she is going to have a huge litter because she's already quite large belly wise.
She is doing better in her fear / trust issues. The first few times I went in it took forever for her to come out and she had to see my face first. Last night she came out pretty much on her own. She mewed at me first, and I called to her and she came out.
She really likes sitting on the couch, so I decided to put a tarp on the couch under the covering so if she does happen to give birth on the couch it won't ruin it. I tried to re-introduce her to the box I bought in hopes that it would be used as a birthing box, but she still doesn't like it. Maybe she just wants to avoid it until it is time to keep the smell of her to a minimum.. (if her scent builds up it is like a calling card to predators.. it is also why they eat their placenta and the waste of the kittens)
Looking at her I noticed she looks a bit like a Sphynx. Since I know some times Sphynx kitties have hair.. since it was a genetic mutation that took it way, I'm guessing a genetic mutation might put it back? I don't know, I'm sure someone much more versed in these things can tell me I'm way off course..
|OK fine, I have crappy photos of her, |
but she does have that Bull Terrier look about her
Seriously, tell me you can't see the resemblance.. check out this photo of a Sphynx with hair.. it's at a stock image agency. Oddly enough finding another photo was near impossible.. (OK fine, it was impossible because I don't want to look beyond the first page of google results) I have to say I REALLY hope there aren't hairless kittens growing in there. I know people think they are really cute, but I have absolutely NO idea what to do with them.. I suppose I can learn..
