The Sisterhood of the Mother Cats

(YouTube link)

We posted about the TinyKittens birth watch webcam a couple of weeks ago, in which three feral cats awaited their litters of kittens. Black cat Ramona gave birth first, and now has four kittens. Rula, the other black cat, had three. Chloe, the ginger cat, just gets bigger every day.The cats have three private nest boxes to select from, plenty of toys, food, and even a TV to watch, but sometimes they crave each other's company. Here we see Ramona and her four kittens making a big fuss over Chloe earlier today. Is Ramona comforting Chloe? Is she trying to warn her what she's in for? Or is she just climbing on Chloe to get away from all those kittens? In a new video just posted, we see that they've settled down bit, and it appears that Ramona is comforting Chloe as her labor pains strengthen.

Check out the live webcam to follow Chloe's labor and imminent birth. The livestream will continue until all the kittens are adopted.

Oh, yes -at least in my house. The biggest is the bully, the other tomcat is his outdoor buddy (but indoors they don't play together), the girl cat lets everyone else eat first, and she mothers them like she did when they were kittens. The girl cat mourned when the old lady cat died, but the tomcats didn't. The big cat thinks he's the alpha, but I suspect the two other cats laugh at him behind his back. And they change over time.

We had a older mommy cat that acted as mid-wife to our younger first time mommy cat. The older one stayed by the younger one as she gave birth, even cleaning up the babies as they were born.
