Lotto the cat, and her five kittens (April 05, 2015) - 06

First days of kittens

After the birth, my dear Lotto has taken care of her five kittens very good. In the first few days were the hardest. She was taking care of her kittens almost 20 hours in a day: licking them, nursing them. Even when they’re sleeping, when it’s time, Lotto was waking up them and let them suck her breasts. She slept so little. So she was always tired, but a proud mother.

My dear Lotto was still so tired after the birth. But see the video above, how good she has taken care of her kittens.

With feeding five mouths, so tiny but gargantuan at the same time, my love was really exhausted. She was a tired, but proud mother.

Lotto loves to sleep on my desk. But after the birth, she didn’t came to me, until April 5 (11 days later the birth). This evening, she came to my desk and spent around 15 minutes with me.
