Woke to a strange sound this morning, and there in the closet were newborn kittens. I thought they were guinea pigs at first, and at 6:00 a.m. it was very difficult to figure out right away. Sometime in the night Sjokolade became a mom. The kids were thrilled. Pam had wanted to allow Sjoko to have one litter of kittens in order to give the kids the experience of raising baby cats for a few weeks. The kids all thought it was perfect that there are 3 kittens and 3 kids, but I've made it clear they won't be staying. 3 months and then they'll be off to new homes. Ther are very sweet, and Sjoko sits with them and purrs and purrs. I've never seen her so happy.
