I twisted my ankle at work yesterday so when I got home from work I sent my husband down to check on "Skinny" and do the necessary care. He joked and asked if she wanted to be his friend if he could be, I laughed, but he is right, lady cats love him.
He came up a few minutes later with a concerned look on his face. He heard kittens. So I toddled downstairs with my camera in hand and this is about as close as I am going to be able to get to them.
this is why.
Yeah, I thought she hated me before.. that just went up to level 1000. I tried to make her comfortable by moving the towels on the couch to drape in front of the couch and make her feel more private, but every step I took, every move I made, she growled.
This is absolutely killing me. I want to make sure she is okay. I want to make sure the kittens are okay, I want to clean things up, I want to offer her someplace soft and warm for her kittens instead of the floor.. I have no illusion that she will come out and put the kittens in the basket that I love fostering kittens in, and I doubt she will use the white cube there as that is far too open as well, so I decided to create her another cave hoping she will take advantage of it.
If she voluntarily gets into the cage, it would make my life SOOO much easier. I do not want to stress her out forcing her somewhere else, but I so don't want to leave her where she is, as birth is never a clean prospect.
so.. I have kittens.. I have yet to see them with my own eyes. I did risk pissing her off to no end to move the meshare webcam to the corner where she is hiding, so I saw them. I attempted to take a video, but the app didn't record it (although I did find a really cute video from last year). While looking at the video after I placed the camera as best I could (with a very long stick) I am pretty sure I saw at least three kittens. One of them I saw a good amount of the body of, and the kitten seemed healthy enough.
So I have kittens, and I don't have kittens.. and this is KILLING ME!! I WANT KITTENS!!! (and yes, feel free to laugh at me)
