Just when I thought my baby days were over three more have arrived as of 2am this morning. They are gorgeous and at the moment snuggled up with Mama in a box beside my bed. That is not where dear Sparrow would like to be but her choice of birthing place was less than ideal for the safety of her kittens. Her spot of choice was Hannah's pillow. Right there in bed with the two children most likely to put her kittens in their pockets and take them outside to play. So being the more experienced mother of us, I put her in a safer location downstairs where she whined until someone sat and watched her nurse her babies. Finally in an effort to compromise we hid the box in my room where I have been making an appearance and rubbing her spouting "good girl, what a good mama you are." I guess all new moms need encouragement....
