Spot (he has a white spot on his bum)
Jasper (Charlie's choice)
And Tony (as in the tiger)
Tuesday afternoon I came home to Poppy "caterwauling" by which I mean she was talking to me in meow language telling me that the babies were coming that night! So I went upstairs with her and made her a lovely nest inside the bottom of my wardrobe and she had a sniff around and promptly rejected it! After about 4 hours of her noise I had, had enough so decided to ignore her! The way I saw it was that she would have to settle eventually and give birth whether she liked it or not!
So she spent the evening as close to me as possible and eventually came to bed with me and went to sleep snuggled up between me and Bobby (who has taken to my bed this week!).
When I woke up Wednesday morning she was nowhere to be seen and was not in her "nest" so I went searching and eventually I could hear the kittens! I followed the noise to Charlie's room and woke him to say she must have had them under his bed to which his reply was "no they are here" as he peeled back the duvet......
Seriously of all the places!!!!
I cannot believe that Charlie didn't even stir! He had no idea she was there!!!
Anyway, off we all went to school and work and when I came back at lunch time, she had moved them! Poppy is renowned for moving her kittens and it drives me mad, last year every time I came home she had moved them somewhere else! This time they were in the bottom of Charlie's wardrobe, so I moved all his things out to make sure they were safe and set her camp up in the room, with a covered litter tray and her food bowls etc. Charlie slept in Bobby's room that night so as not to disturb her and upset her.
Then when yesterday when I checked on her late afternoon, they were nowhere to be seen until I looked and found them in the littler tray in among all the litter!!!!!!!!!!! I mean for god's sake!!!! So I told Poppy she was being ridiculous and moved them all back to the wardrobe and she immediately went in there, grabbed Tony by the neck and plonked him back in the litter!!!! I had to give in and clean the litter tray out, put an old pillow case in and that's where they have stayed thank goodness!
Poppy really doesn't like motherhood she is really cross about the whole thing so I will definitely get her "done" as soon as the babies are gone!
I am going to leave with you with lots of boring photos of the triplets (!!!!) they are soooo adorable and it's going to take all my strength to not keep any of them!!!!
In the wardrobe
In the litter tray!!!!
