Babies, Babies, Babies…!

So the temperatures outside maybe dropping (and rising and dropping and rising), but it sure feels like Spring here in the KyTy Kittens family! With all the new babies and upcoming litters, we’re excited to bring another beautiful bunch of sphynxes, bambinos, and (hopefully soon) dwelves!

Agatha‘s 19 September brood of five was NO surprise.  We had been expecting her to EXPLODE for days…when sitting still, you could actually see the kittens moving inside her belly!  Remarkable to say the least!  Now, at 6 weeks old, these kittens are growing and exploring and becoming amazing little lovebugs.  It’s impossible to walk through the nursury without having at least one of them instantly following behind.  We don’t play “favorites” in this family, but if we did, these little ones would definitely be among the list. 😉

“Should we go ahead and get her nest box ready?”

“We’ll do it when we get back [from a friend’s].” he replied.

Well, as it turns out, when we got back a couple hours later, we found her (and a baby) curled up on the couch waiting for us.  So her 19 October litter of four rounds out our current 10 kittens who are (or will become) available.
