in Cori's litter. I kinda had a feeling we would. 7 kitties is alot for a first litter, and those were about 1/2 the size of the others. Two bad they were the cutest(both calicos). I still have one calico, but it's now the smallest, so I hope it does okay. Also have 2 grays, an orange tabby, and a black & white monster(has to be a boy, it's almost 1/3 larger than the next largest kitten).

Cori doesn't mind Imp, my other cat, or Clover, my Golden Retriever, coming over to inspect the kittens. In fact, she lets Imp clean them. Clover's still not too sure about them, but I think that's because he's a boy!

Well gotta go, I need to get another litter pan and kitten food for Cori. Jen, Imp, Clover, Cori & family.

I'm sorry about the two kittens. 7 is a lot for a first time mama. You got quite a variety of colors there. That's amazing that Cori lets Imp and especially Clover near them so soon.

Hugs,

Awww, I'm sorry you lost 2 of the babies. That is so sad. Cori sounds like a good mommy. Are you going to be keeping the kittens or adopting them out when they are old enough?

Hugs,

Adopting them out!!! 7 cats and 1 70 pound dog in a trailer is too many, there wouldn't be room for me!!! If the little calico survives, I might keep her, she's so cute! Besides, Clover is feeling a little outnumbered here. LOL! Also, I can't face the thought of cleaning that many litter boxes! The three I currently have are more than enough for me. It seems like that's all I ever get done, scooping litter and cleaning up the yard from Clover! Jen
