Happy celebrations
My cat Mambokatsi (Queen Cat) has kittens
She's been strutting around rotund
Proudly displaying her burgeoning bulge
Everytime you walked past her dining place she would purr expectantly for food
We are now experienced in cat births
Having learnt the hard way
When her purr becomes hauntingly melancholic, then its almost time
She follows you everywhere trying to communicate.
I suspect it's, 'The kittens are coming. Please prepare my maternity ward'
The last time we ignored our queen cat was a disaster
My bed being the most comfortable she simply delivered on my bed.
What a beautiful mess laundering the bed linen.
The other time she delivered in my dog kennel and we only found little evidence of the tiny kitts.
Now we know
When she starts purring frantically,
Follows you everywhere,
Stops eating for some hours,
Know it's time to bring life forth
I put a cardboard box in my daughters bedroom
Added some clothing padding to line it up
Lifted up Mambokadzi, stroked her and gently placed in the box
The queen cat sniffed here and there
Looked at me approvingly
I closed the door and let nature do its thing
And it did
The next time i openned the door there were four little kitties and a proud mommy cat
The amazing thing is there were no signs of gooey after birth. Cats are amazingly clean.
Another day, another life
