Exclamation What has been seen...

...can never be unseen. I just watched my neighbour's cat give birth. Five times. And she still seems to have like 2-3 babies left in there! We left her alone, and I'm going back later, but... *Shudder* That was just horrifying. But hey! I might just get a new kitten! :P

Don't fright... It's the miracle of life. :p
So are you going to get a kitty? Maybe post pics when they're able to walk and their eyes are open!

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

That is one miracle of life I never need to see again... Ever... I don't know yet, I kind of already have two dogs, a cat, five fish, two snails, soon with 7 more Bettas, 5 Cories and a new snail... BUT it'll be different this time, because

1. It will be around my birthday ;)
2. I will be paying for everything (Do you hear that? It's the sound of my poor wallet crying)
3. I'm older than twelve now, so I'm "more responsible"
4. THE ONE I WANT IS SO CUTE OMAGAWD

Haha, some pretty bad reasons... But I have 8-12 weeks to prove myself! :D

You have a lot of pets! Wish I had that much, other than fish I have a mouse. x.x Good luck! If you already have a cat, it won't be as hard to get another. What breed is it? I *love* torties.

My current cat is a shelter cat that we got as a kitten, and I believe is a mix of Norwegian Forrest Cat and Maine Coon. The new kitten's mother is a Calico, but the father is a mystery, so basically ALL colours and combinations :D And yes, I am very lucky to have so many... But for me there isn't enough until there's a whole farm XD I have TONS of friends that live on farms and always use that against my mum >:D

Yes, manipulating. Love that strategy to get what you want. ;D
What color do you want the kitten to be? Don't aim for a farm, aim for a zoo! hehe

Haha, yes a zoo! The two I REALLY liked were a tabby-looking orange and one that looks like a PANDA. It's only an hour old and was already adventurous and trying to escape!

Meh. You ain't seen nothing until you've been handed a puppy (or kitten) straight from the uterus to wake up...

Miracle of life, meet miracle of veterinary medicine...

I got to be with one of my cats through both of her labors before she went in for her snip. It was really cool.

I'm used to cat birth. It's nothing special really, just another proccess in the continuation of life. I just make sure that she has a comfy, dark place in which to do it :) Congrats on a (possibly) new kitty! Nothing is more magical or irritating than a kitten XD Litter box training is not fun, but make sure you get the one that learns to do it first! They're usually the smartest, most curious, adventurous, and least skittish.

Oh man, I'm glad I don't wanna be a vet! XD The one I have picked out (his name is Panda :D Well, we THINK it's a he) is never in one spot, even though he's less than a day old! Always climbing over someone new or trying to escape already!
