Kitty Stars of the Week for June 6 - 12, 2004

Our submitter writes,

"My mom and I work in a milking parlor where we milk about 150 cows. Naturally where there's cows there's cats, and this farm was no exception. One cold November evening in 2003, my mom went to the farm for evening milking. Now in this parlor set up we have these big barrel type things for the towels (to clean the cow's udders). Princess, as we called her jumped in the barrel and was acting rather weird. It was soon apparent that our little Princess was having her babies! After a long, long , long 3 hours she only had one baby. My mom was soon done chores and was ready to leave, but Princess was still in the barrel in labor. After a few minutes Mom decided to take Princess home. The next morning we were shocked to find that she still only had one baby, and she was straining and pushing and quite tired so we rushed her to the local vet clinic, baby in tow! After a stressful C-section, we soon learned that another baby was stuck in the birth canal, and behind it was another baby. Unfortunately, both of these babies died during the night as they were quite weak, but the kitten who was born -- Zeena as we named her -- was quite all right and went along for the ride. After a few days, we finally brought our girls home, not back to the farm. Princess has since then made a full recovery, and has gained weight, and Zeena is growing like a weed. They fit in well at our house with our other cats: Spice, Abby, and Bing who all have their own stories to tell, but maybe some other time. The picture below is of Princess (bottom) and Zeena (top). Aren't they the cutest?"


[Editor: we can all learn from this story, so we're glad our submitter sent it in. If your cat is giving birth does not have all of her kittens in a few hours, please take your cat (and any kittens) to your veterinarian immediately. And even better -- if your cat has not been spayed or neutered, PLEASE make an appointment today with the vet.]
