It's Official !!

I'm a Grandmother!
LOL
As of 0530 this morning Kitty was acting "strangely"

For the first time- ever- she didn't want to come out to play. 8O

And so I left her alone for a few hours.
And like magic!
I hear little tiny ratling-voices coming from her nesting box.

I'm not going to disturb her for a few days. Let the babies dry- as it were.
I'll find out soon enough what and how many she had.

:D

All appears well in the "Kitty-realm"
She did come out to play last night (about 12 hours after birthing)
Of course I respectfully did not wander away from her maternity ward. This morning going to the kitchen to refill my coffee cup was ok for her, she just continued grooming me and herself, and bruxing-happy that she has her mommy back.. lol I feel so honored that, even with a passle of ratlings, she missed ME! AWWWWWWW <tips head down, looks humble, scuffs toe in dirt..> She really is my special girl. And she's soooo pretty. I hope at least one of the babies resembles her!

Thank you for the well-wishing, and for sharing my joy.
Hard to believe that this is my first baby-somethings (I don't count guppies..etc) at my age! LOL
{I remember KnightRider, Tenspeed and Brownshoe, Romper Room (I still have my Do-Bee), and gas that cost less than a dollar 8O }

It's like Christmas.. except I've gotten my presents, I just can't unwrap them yet.. LOL

Take care everybody
Anna

Some nicely marked babies she gave you ;). Is she an accidental petstore pregnancy or was this a planned litter?

Why was she pregnant?
Honestly, you need to ask with all the rats you've had in the past? ;):lol:

Aw they're absolutely adorable! Look at the little one with the stripe accross his/her eyes! (bottom pic, the one sort of laid on top of the others at the bottom left of the pic). You so have to call him Bandit or Zorro or something :D

It was kind of an oops-pregnancy
I was actually working on the 'girls cage' when it happened-- lol

Yes Kitty gave me a beautiful pile of pretty babies.
They are Sooooo Cute!!

Yes DonnaK- I will post regular pictures.. :)

Oh, and if anyone is in/near the Willamette Valley/Salem Oregon area, and is interested in babies, we are interviewing for homes. So just give a shout.

Momma has such a sweet temperment, she was never defensive/bitey, and has been in the maternity tank when I was rearranging babies to clean and get pics!

Thank you everyone.

OnlyOno- You're a card!

Ok I have new baby pictures
Kitty was obviously wanting a larger nest box, and her potty corner needed cleaning anyway, so... ;)

You can begin to see what colors they will be.
