Meet Lilac, one of our new moms. Lilac came to us with four babies when they were just a week old. She and her newborn kittens were left at a local shelter because her family could not care for her and her babies. All I can say, Hello – Spay your Cat! But it’s a bit too late for that! Lilac will be spayed as soon as she is done nursing her babies.
Lilac is a beautiful blue and white domestic short hair cat. Here you can see just how pretty she is. A word about being outside: this was only for the photos. Lilac and her kittens are safely inside but photos taken outside simply turn out so much better. You can see I have put a collar on her which is attached to a leash. Although I don’t think she would have strayed far but just to be safe.
This little kitten is Rasta.
Her kittens are Raspberry, Rasta, Roxbury and Radish. I chose non-specific gender names as I can not tell which are females and which are males. They all look alike to me. Her kittens are adorable. They all have some measure of white .. this little one has quite a bit of white.
This little guy is Raspberry
One kitten is mostly white with some brown tabby, one is mostly brown tabby with some white, one has a brown face in the photos but a lot of white on the body and one has mostly brown tabby (or maybe blue tabby) with just a bit of white on the face.
They are all just as cute as can be.
Lilac has the enormous bright amber eyes. These are eyes begging for artists to create masterpieces. Gorgeous.
Lilac was funny. she was fine sniffing around while I snapped photos with my new camera. But then she had had enough and started taking matters into her own paws and mouth! She began to move the kittens one by one back into their carrier! Here she is grabbing one of the kittens with her mouth. Lilac was so done with me and my camera!
So, I packed up the kittens which made Lilac happy and took her back inside. The kittens will be ready for adoption down the road! They are already sweet little kittens.
