Five little kittens

After much drama (mostly on my part) I introduce the 5 newest members of our home.
When I got home tonight I found Ally buried deep inside the blanket in the box we had set out for her. Four of the kittens were all still attached by their umbilical cords. After frantic calls to a few people, including the vet, I decided to cut the cords. I'm so glad I did, because when I started I found that one of the umbilical cords was wrapped tightly around the back foot of another. I'm keeping a close eye on it now, but hopefully everything will be fine. I'll post more pics soon. Both Ally and I are pretty tired.

There are two black, one gray, one orange/white and one calico.

Wow! 5 kittens! They are cute! I'm allergic to cats, but I like to look at them from a distance! So cute!

Oh my goodness...I can't believe they all look so different! Keep us posted - how exciting!

Congrats on the kitten! I can't wait until I can get my little girls kittens - my hubby says no more cats in the house, but when my girls are a little older, he won't be able to resist their sweet pleas! I will coach them. :)
