They're HERE!!!!!

"…They're Here! They're Here!!!"
...sang Mr. Redbird from the treetops this morning ~

"everyone gather 'round!"

"They're HERE!!!"

"huh…?"

"Daisy, stop eating for one moment and listen…"


Toby & Henny Penny are excited to hear the news!!

 ….everyone is excited to hear the news!!!
well, except the sleepy Guinea Hens ~


Zzzzzzzzzz…...

 Buddy & Lazy standing (sleeping) guard outside the 'maternity ward'…
waiting to hear the news….


'The Bodyguard'

 the excitement exhausted them I guess ;)


'Old Faithful Friend'

 at 5:30-ish last evening,
our little Minew gave birth to her first-born…


~ Welcome Little Ones ~

by 10:00 pm-ish
she had finished birthing the last of 4 squealing, squirming catkins!!!
2 white with black markings, and 2 striped mini-Minews :)


sweet little face


a tiny pig-pile

 This was Peter's first experience with a pregnant cat, 
and the whole wonderful outcome of watching her have her kittens….


a palmful of love...

 Have you ever seen a grown man melt?




I have….
(a couple of times)


my gentle husband….

 Thank you Minew,
for allowing us to be a part of your family
...and for gifting us with your friendship ~


Good Mommy

 Sleep tight little ones…
you have a whole barnyard of friends to keep care of you :)


Eeny, Meeny, Miney & Moe?

Hoping your day is filled with many tiny Blessings!!!!

Congradulations to you and Peter.....and of coarse Minew,she looks like such a loving Mom. The photo's brought goosebumps to my arms and tears to my eyes, what a great start to my day, thanks for sharing.

Adorable sweet kittens! Enjoy watching them grow and play. I'm sure they will work their way into your art soon!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Sweet little ones. I wish my husband was an animal lover. He tolerates our cat and the fact that I feed all the outside kitties and that stray animals seem to find me when they need help. :) I am definitely an animal lover. Have a great day. Tammy

Ooooh, so cute! My cats had kittens regularly, and I was midwife more than once. I also box-trained the little ones and weaned them, before sending them to new homes. I miss those happy times!

Karl and Denise said...

They are so cute! Thanks for sharing! I like the video on the frame. Cannot wait for my frame to come in!

Jennifer said...

I loved these sweet pics. I lost my sweet girl a month ago and miss her so. These pics have helped me to remember that life keeps on renewing and made me think that someday soon I will find another furbaby that needs a home and will be a balm to a sad heart. They are the sweetest!

Chris said...
