About Catherine and the Royals

On February 24, 2013, Catherine (Kate) came to us from a woman in Athens. Kate showed up in her yard, started making herself at home, and an examination by a vet showed that she was pregnant. Her kittens will be named after royal figures, though the names will not necessarily be restricted to UK royalty.

We can’t wait to meet her babies!

Kate had her babies on March 19th! There are five of them, and they are absolutely beautiful (two tuxies, two tabbies, one black). Read about them beginning here. (Their weight chart is at the bottom of this page.)

You can see all the pictures of Kate and her babies over at Flickr.

  1. Just got onto your site today, so thankful she has a nice place to live and play, the other kitties make it look like a cool place to visit all day, we will keep up on her progress.

  2. Howdy I am so glad I found your weblog, I really found you by mistake, while I was searching on Digg for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say cheers for a fantastic post and a all round thrilling blog (I also love the theme/design), I don?t have time to browse it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.

  3. Well over an ounce weight gain in two days?!?!? These meatballs are the kitten equivalents of your Cornish Cross chicks!!!!!

    Good thing! Keep growing, little dudes!

    🙂

  4. Princess Kate is doing an AWESOME job with her babies. Meatballs indeed! (Which reminded me of the TV show “All in The Family”. There would be a new name theme for a future litter – Archie, Edith, Gloria, Michael, etc.)

  5. I wonder if there’s been a litter named after M*A*S*H characters (Hawkeye, BJ, Trapper, Klinger, Radar (pretty sure we have or had a Radar at the shelter – black kitty?), etc.)

  6. At this rate, these Royals are going to be well over a pound at one month of age (average kitten weight is 1 pound a month)! Great job, Kate!! Great job, Robyn!!
