Kitten #1 born at 6:06 am. #2 at 7:15. #3 at 7:42. #4 at 8:57. #5 at 10:08. #1 & 2 are black and white. #3 & 4 brown tabby and white. #5 black and white (I think). All healthy, wiggly. Canasta doing well. Edited to add: it’s 2 pm, and I think that we’re done at 5. 4:33 pm: Nope! I went off to take a nap, and #6 (brown tabby and white) was born while I was sleeping! Born at 2:38 pm.
Reminder! You’ve got one more day (okay, a day and a half…ish – until 7 pm Central Time tomorrow, to be exact) to enter to win this awesome crocheted throw!
Karen – Forgotten Felines of Huntsville supporter/volunteer/shipping pro – crocheted that throw. It measures 54″ x 48″, is reversible, and weighs just under 3 pounds.
It costs $5 per entry into the raffle (and you can enter as many times as you’d like!) You DO NOT have to be local to enter – if you’re not here in the Huntsville, Alabama area, we will ship the throw.
Check out the auction page or just send $5 per entry to forgottenfelineshsv (at) yahoo.com via the “sending to friends” option (to avoid fees) and note “THROW RAFFLE.” You can enter RIGHT NOW through Saturday at 7 PM (Central Time.) Saturday evening (7:15ish) we’ll draw a winner live here at Love & Hisses Central (will there be kittens by then? WHO KNOWS?).
All proceeds benefit the Forgotten Felines of Huntsville Sanctuary Cats Fund for cats in long-term care.
Have we got names for the kittens yet? I’ve thought of Cribbage, Casino, and Canfield so far, but I can’t think of other games with a C.
I’ve got a list of names around here somewhere that includes Cribbage – but at the very top of the list is Pinochle. That’s the name that made me DESPERATELY want to use this name theme, and I cannot wait to use that name for a kitten.
Apparently the largest litter of kittens ever was 19…
::Giving Canasta the side eye::
I looked for a picture of this cat all over the internet yesterday and couldn’t find a thing, probably because it was in 1970. I did find this information though: 19 kittens were born in one litter on August 7th, 1970. Four were stillborn. The surviving fifteen kittens consisted of 1 female & 14 males.
That’d be one way to get 15 kittens in the foster room again!
So glad I clicked on the 2008 entry. That story plus the Mr. Boogers pics for purposes of illustration? An Anderson CLASSIC!
I re-read that and cracked up!
