She's had two kittens since this photo was taken almost an hour ago. Although Kitty's noticeably thinner already, Sarah thinks she feels about four more.
- Last month's related post:
- Is she or isn't she?

11:30p Kitty's resting and nursing her five newborns after being moved into a large pet taxi.
I'm intrigued by how well things fell into place tonight:
- After a pair of neighborhood dogs had shown up to harass Kitty during her supper, she was so hissing-mad that I suggested Sarah come back indoors. She stayed though, and helped Kitty through several hours of difficult labor.
- Sarah heard and then saw signs of coyotes in the vicinity, possibly attracted to the smell of fresh meat. I suspect the kittens (and perhaps even Kitty) wouldn't have survived the night if she'd chosen to nest in an unsecured spot and have her kittens alone.
- And to top it off, Sarah's on Spring Break, so there's no concerns about getting to bed for an early morning. How great is that?
