Barbie cat has six kitties! This is her first litter, at least the first I have seen. I believed she was pregnant 3 times before, though I had never seen her kittens. Either she had them and abandoned them or they were eaten by something, or she really was not pregnant. This time she had the babies in Ofcharka's dog house, which seems to be the hang out on the farm. Two chicken prefer it for their nesting box, and Jane had her kittens in it as well. Poor Ofcharka has not slept in his house all spring! Jane's babies disappeared in one day, either to the chickens or to the dogs I am thinking, so I blocked off the entrance so chickens and dogs cannot get in. Maybe this littler will survive. I have not looked to see how many boys or girls she had, but there is one kitten that is calico and is so cute. Two are orange and white and a couple of grey tabby cats. Babie is grey, white and orange, and I have no idea what the male looked like, since no male has ever been seen around here. With the livestock guardian dogs, it seems no one wanted to come courting the ladies, so perhaps they took a long walk themselves. The kittens will be for adoption except for one little girl, if they all survive. Welcome to the Fat Ewe Farm little kitties!
