MOTHER MAISIE: 1.
Maisie started looking as if she was about to start to give birth about ten o'clock. In the two hours since then she's produced two kittens -one tabby and one black and white. She's in a little igloo in a corner of the conservatory and I can see her, though not her kittens, from where I'm sitting typing. right now she's either cleaning her babies or licking the entrance to her vagina in preparation for another; I'm not sure.
I have been in to see her once the kittens were out and feeding. Maisie was quite happy with this and purred loudly as I stroked her. I'm going to leave her alone for at least another half hour before checking if she's had any more. Meanwhile, here are some photos.
