waiting for kittens
Here is tiny Tabitha with her giant belly. Every morning first thing when I get up I check Tabby in her box (in her own private room) to see whether she is still one cat or has become five cats yet.
Eight days ago, the vet could only tell us that she was more than 45 days. 45 days is the point at which there is enough calcification in the bones of the developing kittens for them to show up on the x-ray. Since cat pregnancies are about 66 days in length, we could go as much as two more weeks.
