Wilmas is a Queen

Filed under: cat — admin @ 9:09 am

I know i havent written in ages and this post may be long as i have so much to tell……. *haha*

Friday my youngest was having her Bday party one of the dance studios she takes lessons it was a last minute palning but we got it toghter pretty good she wanted it to be themed 70th and wed we where tiedying 12 (or something) tshirts to have in the party treat bags, I am glad my bassment where the washing machine lives int a really nice area cuase it was messy.

Friday morning i was running the last errends for the party plus subbing at the cat shellter cleaning cages, so when i got back home around 1230 i was tired and hungry I made my self lucnh and decide on something really odd to have it in bed…. well i wanted to spend some time with Wilma as the day would soon become busy at three I was suposed to be in school to see midle DD play basketball against the teachers the ticket was laying beside my bed.

Around one where i propped up in bed watching animal planet and Wilma came purring cuddling into my lap just as knew she would. I was relaxing and petting her she was laying against my chest her head burried under my chin she is such a sweet little thing her huge belly was calm. then all of a sudden she became restless and started to move around in my lap and then i saw it,,, blooooood omg she was going to have her kittens in my lap…..

i couldent move and i didnt know what to do i was burst with pride that she feelt so much comfort with me but at the same i knew it was almots two a clock now.

my cleephone rings and my sweet volunteer cordinator was outside wantng to drop of bday gifts for me and DD i told her about Wilma and said just com on up.

by that time Wilma slide of my lap and was laying next to me as close as she possible could. after that first visit we had more my oldest with a freind dropped by and then the kids came. in the midst of all this Willma got a bit more restless and the fact i needed to get out off bed made her run under the bed and into a small box we had given her one of 4 places we had made her.

but when i came back she keept jumping back and forth between the box and my bed so finaly i tooke the box and placed it in bed.

it was there she had her kittens i was there for the first two but i had to leave.

the third one came when i was in the car picking cake and pizza up me and DD arrived at the party at 620 and it was starting at 630 and i was to sett things up (wow) well thankfully they would dance first and that gave me time to set the table and decorate some.

I have no photos of my sweet DDS 12 yrs party as the camera where with my other DDs and the new Queen Wilma.

Sweet Wilma she is such a good mom but she was suposed to have four kittens and we where eagerly awaiting hoping for a orange tabby. but he never came sat morning i drove to pick a DD up at a sleep over along with a friend my poor girl was sick and would not go to her dance lesson i droped her off at home and started drivning the friend,, well teh problem was that wilma didnt get her fourth kitten and she was phasing around and acting starnge and she was running a fever.

so i had to call the vice presdient whom said take her to the vet now. and i relised i was 30 mins from my house and it was allready11.30 a saturday… welll what do you do … hmm i called home gave the girls instructions called the vet and thanked god the vet is basically 6 houses down the road no more then 4 min walk Then i wished i had one of those blue lights the cops have as i was on a mission,,,, *haha*

well I got to the vet in time safe with no dents on my car nor anyone elses as far as i can tell. I think the would have let me in a few minutes late as I was the one whom payed…

There was no more kitten in her but if she had otehr things left over he couldnt tell as she was running a fever we shoudl keep an eye on her and give her meds.

I think that was enough drama for me for one day and i went home to care for my pets and my sick baby. (12yrs baby)

plus doing such glamoruse things as cleaning the house.

Sunday we where all a big happy family the girls played catopoly in my bed watching Wilma and or the tv I was working in Illustartor and doing a laundry or two, a nice sunday with no must and nowhere we had to be wich is a rare gift in our house. we where going to eat Rostbeef with a sort of potato cassrol or what it can be called in english.

Anyway food that needs to be in the oven for a few hrs. at around six my odlest arrives from collage and is hungry as a wolf the grey cat whom i havent even spoken about here yet had been in her bed all day wich is kind of unsal for her as she is the biggest lap cat i know off. she allwasy comes to greet me and then jumps up in my lap as soon as i sit down. i didnt think much about it as i could feel her kittens was way smaller and i didnt think she was due for a other week or so.. wellllllllllllllllll huge wrong

at six my midle one cries out for help i am on teh phone hidden from the kids in teh back yard as guitar hero was on way to laodly in the house.. so i miss it i miss the firts one and the drama around it it was stuck for a moment and she didnt lick of the sack something she was doing poorly with each of them.

thankfully i had gone through every step with all the girls they knew what needed to be done and with a little towel dipped in warm water the rubbed carefully the small newborn to its first breath. I am so proud of them thats my girls.

Ofcause my oldest whom did this now wants that cat she has a bound to it that is spceal. and that kitten is a Hemmingway meaning it has six toes and he has the cutest little tail that sticks right up in the air not laying falt against the blanket as kittens tails usally do at this tender age and its all coverd in dark curly fur…

so well i guess have to let you all…


She is cutie silver gray paws and charchole gray fur, she is a lap cat whom either run away or been kicked out as she is by no chance a wild cat. however she has been out a while her fur needed some taming and she is not trusting people 100% yet.

But i do think that we did gain a huge amount of her trust last night. as we helped her with her kittens she do seem qute diffrent today.

We ate our dinner in shifts as she had tuff labors and was screaming and obviusly needed some help.

Around ten we had four kittens all of the very tiny compered to Wilmas huge once. and we had no idea how many she had so i sent the girls to bed and lay down on a sleeping bag next to the cat knowing er screams would wake me up if i feel asleep.

the hard floor woke me up around two by that time the mom was nursing and purring and half a sleep i dint think any more kittens would come so i kissed her good night added some food and went to bed finaly.

Well I now am a carzy cat lady as i have 11 cats in my house plus my lovely poor dog.

But what can I say I love pets and I love helping them out I will have 8 busy weeks, then i will have memories and my two youngest girls has been through two cat births now ( my oldest was through a cpl back in sweden) .

and i think it is very spcial to care for newborns and there moms its very spcial to take frightened cats and make them into secure lovebugs.

Viktoria she is already a love bug all she needs is a bit of time and someone whom wont give her up.
