:iconrules01plz::iconrules02plz: Rules for using my Stock

Lillepus, my brother's cat, was supposed to get sterilized, but the vet said she was too young. Shortly after, before the new time the vet gave them, she became pregnant. Not wanting to abort the kittens my brother decided to wait till after they were born. During this time he found 5 feral kittens in a dumpster at his work. He brought 4 of them home with him (the fifth a co-worker took). The now very pregnant Lillepus took to the young ones right away! She took care of them, washed them and would probably let them suckle had they tried (they suckled on every surface they got purchase, so not sure why they didn't try) She felt such a connection to them that when she went in to labour she placed herself in between all the kittens. We moved her in to a separate room so she could birth in peace, but it made her unstable and stopped trying to push. One of the kittens came to the door and meowed, wanting to join us. We let him, and she immediately calmed down and continued birthing. The big kitten just wanted to lay there with us, and during the birthing he helped out by holding the already clean kittens warm while she gave birth to the next. There where no complications during the birth, but one of them worried me as he had an extremely large scrotum. He seemed to get better, but after a few weeks he still seemed to have some pains, and was taken to the vet. Apparently he had no but hole, the scrotum had simply ruptured in the area where it should have been. Fixing it would be hard, and he would still have pains the rest of his life, so he was put to sleep.

The fluffy white one was a female called Milky (got a new home at 8 weeks old. To early for my taste, but it was their decision), the spotted one a male called Spotify (I believe they kept him. I left the country so not sure =P ) and the black was a male called Zorro (Zorro was put to sleep...)

Warning: I wont use mature filter unless prompted. Even my 4 year old niece didn't mind watching ;)
In fact, Tea was super fascinated at seeing where they came out =P
At first we tried to keep the children out, but both ended up watching carefully without bothering the cat at all. The youngest one, 2 year old Lilly, petted the kittens 2 cm above them until they where fairly big :love:
