Zhaklin Gives Birth to Four Beautiful Kittens

One week ago today, bright and early on a Sunday morning or more like dark and early on a pre-Sunday morning, Zhaklin gave birth to four gorgeous, healthy kittens! She woke us up about 2:00 a.m. — she was very uneasy and doing a lot of meowing. We went with her to the birthing room and waited. About 5:00 a.m. she went into labor. An hour and a half later the first boy was born. We were amazed at how well Zhaklin performed. There was no screaming, no running around the room, she just went directly to the birthing box and did what she was supposed to do. Her God given instincts just took over. By 9:00 a.m. the birthing process was over and she had given birth to three boys and one girl. And I had time to take a shower, get dressed and make it to church on time! Jim stayed home to be there in case there were any late-comers. But four it was – we think the perfect number!

    Beautiful healthy looking kittens. Congrats. So enjoy my boy from Chirpys last litter

  3. Thank you, Cheryl. Sorry we did not have a kitten available when you were looking for one; I would have loved to meet you. So happy we were able to recommend our friend, Chirpy – she is the “salt of the earth.” Give your boy an extra pat for me!

  4. I think I come back just to look at them every couple of days. So cute! Definitely can’t have a bad day when you’re looking at a bunch of kittens. Looking forward to seeing future litters! 🙂

    • The kittens are 4 weeks old now and so very, very cute. I will be posting new pictures soon. Our pet parents say the highlight of their week is when they receive the weekly picture updates….I am looking forward to the time I am sending them to you, Shea!
