Minerva and Rius’s beautiful litter of kittens have arrived. They are absolutely stunning! Minerva had a long but smooth birth and is now extremely content in fulfilling her mummy role. The kittens are excellent weights, big and healthy. We have 3 girls and 1 boy. We are keeping a little girl from this litter. At present the are all very pale. Three of them are white and one off white. The kitten colours and patterns are Chocolate Mink and Chocolate Point. As with all of our past kittens these babies will be given rose names, for us the kitten names are very important and have to be not only suited to their colouring but also their nature. We have now decided on the names Tonkinini Cloud Dancer (the boy), Tonkinini French Vanilla (staying with us), Tonkinini Honey Butter and Tonkinini Snow Owl (in tribute to our dear little Brownie who’s nickname was Owly).

 I am lucky getting to spend all day with these gorgeous little things. As always they are starting off in the kittening box next to our bed, any squeaking in the night and I can just peek over and check that all is well, they will move into the kitten room once they are old enough to start terrorising us in the night :) By about 6 weeks they will be given free reign of the house (apart from at night) to join in with all aspects of family life!

Here are some pictures of the new babies. As you can see both they and Mummy are wonderfully content! Minerva absolutely thrives with motherhood, she is a truly wonderful queen.. You will also see some with aunty Maia who is always happy to help.
