Kitten invasion!

Friday, July 31st, 2009

So, no updates in a while huh? Well, here is an update for you!

Yesterday around 16:00 Saria gave birth to 4 lively kittens. I will present them to you, and also try to keep updating the blog so you can follow their first 12-14 weeks of life here.

First out was Arawn. He was giving his mother a hard time at first, but finally came out and was well taken care of by mummy. For my own part didn’t have to do much else but sit there and take some photos and keep Saria company.

Arawn, a few hours old. Fawn Somali boy.

After that came Aeval, smallest of the litter, blue Somali girl.

Third out was Amaethon. He decided he wanted to come out behind first, and was having a wee bit of problems coming out since Aeval‘s placenta was stuck behind him. Fawn Somali boy. He was also born as the biggest in the litter of 4, 113 grams!

Last we got a little surprise. I was almost starting to believe she was done, then poof, there was a 4th getting cleaned by mother cat. Ai, fawn Somali boy. (might be a girl, Ain in that case)

All the names are taken from the various Celtic Mythologies around the world. Arawn was the Welsh god of the underworld, Aeval was the Fairy Queen of Munster among the Celts of Ireland. Amaethon a Welsh god of agriculture and Ai a Irish Poet God.

I’ll also share some pictures of the whole litter, some kittens and their mother.

I’ll try and update the blog continuously so you can see them growing and finally finding home for themselves.
