General update

Kittens and Clive are doing well. Clive has now opened his eyes and the kittens have found their purrs, there is just 1 kitten still needing a home.

After 2 round trips of just over 600 miles both Rhonda and Dollar have had good matings, so I now have everything crossed for some stunning pups in a couple of months.

Growing fast

Kittens are coming on well now, they have started playing but as yet mum is obviously feeding them very well as they are showing no interest in food.

All systems go

At last Rhonda has come into season, so she will be mated to the apricot dog, CHTaladayga the Entertainer when she is ready. This is to be her 3rd and last litter. She is a very affectionate dog and has given me some lovely pups, so hopefully this litter will be equally good. Typically Dollar has chosen the same day to come in season, and although I would not normaly have two litters together I intend to mate her as well, as I have had a lot of people enquire about a pup from Dollar and it is two years since she produced the litter that gave me Martha. Again this will be a repeat mating, to Ch Lemerle Remmington Steele.

Miss Gatsbys kittens are now up and about, and starting to look like cute kittens rather than aliens! (although alot would say they still look like aliens when fully growm). They are taking an interest in the world around them and I don't think it will be long before they venture outside the nest box. I am already finding myself drawn to one of the girls, who even at this age is looking to be very bold - I hope she finds a home quickly :-). I am now taking enquiries on this litter.

Here he is, Betty's pup - Clive, as yet not much to see on a photo but it's a start.

It's a puppy

I am currently visiting my parents in Worthing, so we brought Betty with us, as although she wasn't due 'til Thursday (and I'm coming home tonight) I didn't want to take any chances Last night she started huffing and puffing and eventually - 1:30am, she produced a little black boy.
I have taken some pictures, but won't be in a position to down load them until I get home. She is once again proving to be a totally devoted mum and the pup, currently named Clive after my dad, is doing very well

More kitten pics

Mum and kittens are continuing to do very well, although Miss Gatsby is looking a little bit on the slim side despite having a constant supply of top quality food available to her, the kittens however are little porkers!
Miss Tibbs is getting quite maternal with them now, and when I get them out to freshen up their bed she is very quick to come over and inspect them, all good experience for her as she is expecting her own babies at the end of the month.
