This is not a mathematics lesson but you read the answer right. EIGHT! The J Family has increased to EIGHT members today. This is something that I was trying to avoid by wanting to spay her earlier but somehow she got pregnant after missing for 4 days in April this year. Jimmy (1.37am) and Joey (2.08am) came into my life barely few hours ago. Both the twins and mother are in perfect health now. Maybe I should share with you on my experiences and relationship with Mama Jessica. I was the one who helped her to deliver the triplets and she was expecting me to do the same for the twins. Warning: Some photos may be too gross to see!


Mama Jess was feeling rather restless since Friday night but I was not in to help her out. She waited and waited and waited for me to be free. The whole of Saturday morning and evening, I was not free too. Again, she waited for me. When I came back from my dinner around midnight, there she was at the door waiting for me again. Before I could even sit down comfortably to check my mails, she was calling out loudly for me continuously. As I stood up and followed her, she led me to the delivery box which I had prepared for her since last week.


I got my surgical gloves on immediately and gave her some strokes on the tummy. She was purring and panting at the same time. Not long later, something pinkish peeped out. Surprisingly, her amniotic fluid (water bubble) should have been spurt out but I hardly see a lot. It could be due to her licking all the time.


Jimmy was the first one to be out at 1.37am. I got panicked when I saw a black tail coming out first and it was not moving. I kept on stroking Mama Jess’s tummy to ease her tension. With one loud cry, Jimmy was out and moving. I was relieved. Mama Jess cleaned up Jimmy and bit off his umbilical cord.


Joey was born minutes later at 2.08am. She came out real fast but she was an in active one compared to Jimmy. Mama Jess spent longer time cleaning her up as she was still panting away from the delivery.


I checked her tummy and found that there were no more kittens inside. I waited for awhile to double confirm before shifting them into a new and cleaner box. Here is a video clip of Mama Jess cleaning up Joey.

Ohmigosh, that's wonderful!! Congratulations!

Tracymom: I've helped deliver kittens before too, and isn't it one of the most wonderful experiences you could ever go through? It's amazing how much cats appreciate human help during the birthing process (or so I've been lead to believe). And even if the mother is a first-time mother, it's amazing how her instincts kick in and show her what to do. I'm so glad that Jessica waited for you (what a sweet, sweet gesture), as she obviously loves you so much. :) Congratulations!
