We have kittens!

I was in a rush this morning (Ollie had his vet appointment - and that is another post when I can do it with out being so emotional) and I went in to feed Lilly, and she was laying in her carrier growling, and hissed when I stepped forward.  I slowed right down and talked softly to her.  I was able to get up close and see a kitten tail, so I knew SOMETHING was going on.  I don't know if she was out of labor and was just being protective or if she was still in labor, but I didn't have time to figure it out.  I went out and came back about an hour or two later.

Nothing to see here, move along..
No really, nothing to see!!
Darn, something moved!!

Hey Look!! Kittens!!!
MY! kittens!!
She gave birth to two boys (the two tiger kittens, one with white boots) and one girl (the black one).  I felt around, and I THINK that is all that is in there, but then again, this is the cat I THOUGHT was in heat when she first showed up here a little over two weeks ago.. Kinda glad I didn't say anything to the shelter now  

She did a great job cleaning them up, they have good stubs where their cords attach.  They were dry and happy.  She however was covered with blood.  I did my best to try to wipe some of it away, but she was getting restless and wanted to get back to her kits, so I put her back (resulting in that last shot) She is definitely a good mom.
