Cats on Tuesday: My Exciting Announcement

Cats on Tuesday I few of you already heard this announcement in the chat room, but I am making my official announcement here.

In December, I will be getting a little brother!!!

The kitten won't be coming from my breeder, unfortunately, because her August litter consisted of only one little girl, who is a furry Sphynx. (Yes, Sphynx will fur are still occasionally born - remember that Sphynx have been crossed with other breeds to create a healthy, robust breed with a wide gene pool. Also, the Sphynx gene is recessive to normal hair, although it is dominant over Rex-type curly hair.)

Another German breed had a litter of kittens on September 2nd (two girls and two boys) and one of the little boys will be coming to live with us in December! He will be a pointed (Siamese-patterned Sphynx). We don't know exactly what colour he will be yet, because he is still so young. Like with Stella's Meezer babies, the pointed Sphynx are born solid white (pink) and slowly develop their point colours as they grow older. The kittens' sire is a red-point and white and their dam is blue-point and white.

In these photos, the kittens are just one week old, so they are still pink and very young. We don't yet know which of the little boys will be coming to live with us (we'll see how the kittens develop) but one of them will become my little brother in December!

These first photos are of the two little boys. There are courtesy of the breeder, Miracle Love Cattery. (Click photos to view a larger image)

Wow ! DH these are very good news ! I am very happy for you, you won't be an only child anymore and you can play around with your little brother like Rosie does with Arthur ! When we crossed Munich I told Mr. Gattino that you lived here, we waved but you weren't sitting at the window !
I called my neighbor to have news of my little darlings they are all OK and Lisa is back to her old self, standing every morning at the neighbor's door and waits to be fed !!

Ramses said...

Oh that's such great news! :) Having a sibling around is such good fun, even if mine doesn't think I wash properly! ;) But they're great to snuggle and play with and best yet, you get to eat baby food again! Or you do if you're fast and just a little sneaky! ;)

Oh boy! A brother for the holidays! I am very happy for you - do you have names to choose from?

What cuties! I just want to keep them warm purrr. The servants say there's nothing like a little kitten to add to the holiday spirit. There's been talk about me getting a sister or something but I hope its an urban legend because Im not the sharing type!

Oh, those kittens are so cute. Our mom missed our kitten stage, so she was very interested in the pictures. Congratulations on getting a baby brother, Dragonheart!

meeyauw said...

congratulations! wow, that is exciting. they do have a bit to grow. think of all you can teach the little buy. personally i hope he's a red point. does cat gender have anything to do with the prevalence of a certain color?

just think, you can get all the baby pictures but not have the worry and fretting!

Big Piney Woods Cats said...

Wow, are you efurr lucky. I wood luv a little kitten to play with. My butt gets on fire, and I don't have anyone to chase, cuz Mittens hides and Patches climbs the tree. That is lots of naps, though, until your little brofurr arrives. Concatulations!

The Crew said...

Oh, those babies are too cute!

I'm so happy to hear that you're getting a brother, D. When that happens you'll be elevated to the prestigious position of Senior Cat and your brother will become your assistant, or second in command, like Max is to me!

I'll tell you, D, it'll be great having a brother. You'll hang out together, play and share things like brothers do. You can teach him everything you know and train him to become a Mancat, exactly like I did with Max.

We can't wait to see what he looks like and find out what his name will be!
