So, everyone in the family was pretty excited about the kitten news. All but one. But, as CC always does, he came around after the initial shock wore off. I've surprised him with pregnancy news a time or two. He always comes around. And that night, I heard him baby talking her, telling her to be careful jumping with those babies in there.
We read up what to do. Sweet Cheeks sent me texts about pregnancy in cats. She suggested I start taking Cappy's temperature to see if she would soon deliver, complete with a weblink of how to do this. I texted back, "I've read the article, honey. Do you know where the rectum is?" She texted, "Rectum?" I decided to wait for Cappy's happy surprise one day rather than start monitoring her temperature. The vet called out as I left his clinic, "It could be one week...." The kids were flying here, there, and everywhere for volleyball tournaments, field trips, retreats. Everyone was hopeful Cappy would wait to have her babies when they were back at home. Cappy was certainly more than we bargained for!
