And finally on Saturday 3rd of December at around 2 am Rua broke her water and they started coming out… one at the time. Ginger was her first, and a couple of hours later, one after the other came his two sisters and several hours after, at about 7,30 Combat arrived, she climbed on her mum and latched immediately to one of her udders. By 8 am they were all happy and nursing away and getting all the good colostrum her mum produced for them and for their immune system. Rua was very very tired and so were we. She avidly ate the placenta the kittens came with, she drank a lot of fresh water and she went back to nursing. This was Kevin’s first litter and he was a great assistant. We had to help Rua a little with Combat as her mum was very tired and she seemed a bit stuck half way through the birth canal, but as soon as she came out she revealed her amazing combative, active and curious nature. She was also the first to come out of their nest and the first to climb on Kevin for pets… She wasn’t even 3 weeks old. Hope you will enjoy the pictures! Her 2 sisters, who look a bit like superheroes with their little eye masks are playing sweetly with their brother who is super cute and he reminds me a bit of Master Yoda with his years… but he’s a very handsome red boy and you will fall in love with him in no time.
