Speaking of Pregnant Animals....

We now have inherited a cat, named Moley. Pronounced, "Mow-lee" Cause she has a black spot on her face, like a mole. Get it?

Anyway, she's quite the fertile cat and has had many kittens. And once again she was pregnant. My father-in-law had hoped to put it to a stop. I think he said he got the ol' tom-cat with his shot gun not too long ago, but apparently another one found his way to beautiful Moley.

Well, my mother-in-law had been telling us that she though Moley was close to delivery. Boy was she right. Tonight we walked into the living room and she was pushing her first kitten out! It was amazing! As my MIL and the rest of the family were worrying about the carpet, I grabbed my camera. I'll have you know that I'm used to this stuff. I'm a doula, and videotape births all the time. This one was not much different. Okay, well, it was different. A lot different. Still, Moley told me that she was honored to have her very first doula, after all the births she's been through...

And if you want to see a part of what we were seeing, here you go!

  1. Have you thought of getting her fixed? That might put a stop to the problem. What great pictures, btw!

  2. Yes! All the siblings said they'd donate to the "Get Moley Fixed" fund as soon as the in-laws left. hahaha. We'll see. (I hope so!)
