These are the last of the kitty photos we have from the Spring Katz show. This first one is a Ragdoll. Mum and dad thought his colouring was so pretty. He looked like his coat was very soft.
This mancat is a Toyger. According to Wikipedia, the Toyger has been in development from the 1980's, with the aim of breeding domestic shorthair tabbies to look like 'toy tigers'. The creator, Judy Sugden, says the idea is they will help promote conservation of the tiger. In developing the Toyger, she even imported a street tomcat from India because of his strong markings. This one here is WNCA Diamond Db Gd Ch Waratah Gd National Ch Xquizit Chester.
This little lady is an Oriental. She had the most curious face, and seemed very interested in what was going on around her. Her name is Azov Salix Vitellina.
This is an Egyptian Mau. Mum had never seen one before. His coat colouring reminded her of Tom Kitten, one of our first fosters.
This is a Bengal. His coat is very cool. And look! He has a Yeow! nip cigar and fishie in his crate with him! Maybe he was sleeping off the buzz? MOL!
These were mum's favourite two kitties that she saw on the day of the show. She said they would win every ribbon available if it was up to her.
We asked if we could have bonito flakes and Temptations instead of ribbons. MOL!
The babies are getting bigger and cuddlier with every passing moment.
The amount of time mum wastes 'ooooohing' and 'aaaaaahing' over them is ridiculous.
Ron is drinking better and better. They are feeding every 2-2.5 hours, with a 3 hour interval between 3am and 6am. Mum is learning to deal with it now, and is functioning at a higher level than she was earlier on. MOL!
When the kittens knead on mum while they are drinking, she nearly dies! It's just too much cute!
Mum has been making sure they get some good cuddle time each day on mum's chest, after reading that hearing and feeling a heartbeat is good for their development.
As a fan of cuddles, mum has embraced that completely:)
