In honor of the season, they should name her and her squirmlings after the gifts in the "Twelve Days of Christmas" song.

Great idea!

She looks an awful lot like my Pumpkin.

I like kittens as much as the rest of you, but I hope the poor thing doesn't have to deliver 12 of them!

She barely looks grown up herself, poor girl.

TGG, it would only be eleven as she would be named that way too. Probably she'd be Partridge or Pear Tree since that's what starts it off.

Or, we she be True Love since all the gifts come from "my true love"?

Either way, feel free to suggest that to them as you have an in.

According to what KA has found out about her, she may only be five- or six-months old. She was supposed to go to the vet today to have a general checkup. The vet may be able to estimate her age a little better.

S'mai Bawb:

It turns out that Cashew, the new momcat, is not really a momcat. The vet did an ultrasound and an x-ray and no kittens. The vet estimates that she's about 10 months old.

So non-momcat Cashew is now an honourary Cat Tree member. She's going to be taking the usual medicine when a new cat comes in and will be going for her graduation surgery on the 19th.

For some reason, I just had a feeling that she wasn't going to have kittens. Psychic

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "Christmas Cashew Nut" ab Arthur

IMO, she's already learned how to cat.

Most people think cashews are nuts, but they aren't.

Most people thought that cat was a momcat, but she wasn't.

Cashew is a wildly appropriate name for her.

That's the exact face (and pose) that Puss from the animated Puss in Boots uses just before he attacks.

Cheeto used to make that Puss face/pose, although not before attacking (he's sweet and scaredy). We used to call him Puss's Little Brother.

And she's in! No name yet, of course, but she's a lovely calico with a big black dot right in the middle of her chest.

Cashew is in the main room now.

Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

The new momcat has been officially named "Quiche Lorraine" (or Lorraine for short). So it looks like we're going to have food-related kitten names.

In other KA news, Graycie is leaving for her new home tomorrow at 11 AM KATZ.

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "A little Gravy" ab Arthur

It appears Lorraine already has some of the basics of cat down pat, showing a near flawless demonstration of the "rollover routine".

In one of the more recent kitten close-ups, Mr. A. indicated the vet estimated Lorraine was about a month into her pregnancy, and so had about a month to go.

We may not get squirmies in time for Christmas, but probably not too far into the new year.

I love her markings! Those funny legs. And I think I caught a glimpse of mixed-up toes!

You did! Her toes are all white on the left front and right rear, though there is a tan spot on the inner-most toe on the left front. The outer toes on the right front are tan, the inner ones are white. On the left rear every other toe alternates black/dark grey and white. Sometimes the lighting in the close-ups makes the tan markings hard to see.






She seems like a total sweetie each time I've seen her.
