APRIL 2016 KITTENS

APRIL KITTENS

This litter was unplanned but it could have been part of our outcrossing efforts.

Isabella, now renamed Istas, our much too young queen in training, went through her first and silent heat much too early. It was also silent. The resulting litter was very premature and all the kittens were well underweight. We thought one would make it but his digestive system eventually failed and we lost the last one on 18 May.

It's a rather sad day here at UpperValley. Experience reminds us that life is fragile and things don't always work out for the best.

When Queen Isabella reaches one year old we will plan for a new litter. In the mean time she has a lot of growing up to do.

(16-11 - 16-16)

The following pictures and text have nothing to do with this page. It is part of a test to get rid of a rogue bug in the editing process.
Don't worry, the bug is trapped in a "roach motel" so it can't get out into the Internet.
