I’m not real up to date on momcats. The only ones I knew, before Lorelei, were the feral moms. Like Little Guy, the mom of Sammy, Opie, Richie, DaNiece and Angel. She was a good mom. Well, I don’t exactly know how good because we snagged the kittens before they had a chance to grow up wild, then she was eaten by a coyote.
Little Bit had two viable litters and we grabbed those babies from her. But she was only separated from the second litter for a couple of days, when she got spayed. Well, wait, maybe it was a little longer because we had her crated until she had somewhat recovered before letting the kittens in to see her. And she let them be with her for a couple of weeks, then was done with them. She didn’t want them near her, growling them away and slapping at them if they crossed her line.
But Lorelei. Lorelei, man, she’s a good mom. She loves her babies. The night she came home from her spay, they were suckling and she was grooming them. A week later, she’s recovering nicely from the surgery and this morning, I actually watched her playing with Rory on the patio. I’ve never seen Little Bit play. Bounce when she runs, yes, but never play.
Just a little while ago, I was in the bedroom and I saw this:
She's such a good mom!
