My two Siamese cats were bred; they are mother and daughter. Mya is a seal point Siamese turning 5 years old on May 30th and Mouse is a chocolate point Siamese that will turn 2 years old on April 19th. Mya is due on April 28th and Mouse is due on May 31st. Took Mya in for an ultrasound last week and there are 4 babies in there! I give all my kittens temporary names (owners encouraged to change them if they want) based on a theme. Mya's litter will have the theme "Greek Gods and Goddesses" and Mouse's litter will be "famous mice" (because of her name). I will choose from these names:
Mya Kittens: Boys: Hermes, Zeus, Ares, & Apollo
Girls: Selene, Lina, Athena, & Iris
Mouse Kittens: Boys: Despereaux, Fievel, Gus, Tuffy, Mighty, & Jerry
Girls: Tanya, Trixie, Minnie, Maisy, Pearl, & Bianca
I will eliminate some of Mouse's kitten names once she goes in for her ultrasound and I know how many we are expecting.
Mouse had a litter due 2/12/12. Unfortunately, she lost her two babies after giving birth to them on 2/14/12. The kittens were just too large and according to the vet it is most likely because it was Mouse's first litter. First little one was a boy, who we named Romeo, came out still. After rushing to the vet's after this (I rushed to 3 different vets because no one was open at the time), Mouse gave birth to the second kitten, Juliet, who was also not alive upon being born. It was a stressful day. I had called 5 different vets because I had been thinking Mouse was having trouble but they were not concerned and told me to wait it out (never again will I go against my instinct). I call this the litter of 2 due 2/12/12 that was born 2 days too late....2 years to the day that their mother was conceived (Mya was bred to Mouse's father on 2/14/10). The vet gave us the OK to try again right away, so Mouse is now pregnant with her second litter and hopefully will have more luck with this one. If something happens with this litter, she will be spayed.
All of my kittens are "sold" (I like the word adopted better) under very strict conditions that potential owners must agree to which include spaying/neutering upon acceptable age, keeping the cat up to date on all shots, keeping the cat indoors unless supervised outdoors, no declawing, & if the cat ever needs to be re-homed that he/she be returned to me. I am well aware of the cat overpopulation and I will NOT see my babies end up in shelters. In order to do my part to help reduce numbers in shelters, I also offer half off the price of a kitten if the owners also adopt a cat/kitten from an animal shelter (I lose money because of this but the cause is great).
Anyway, I will be posting lots of pictures (I have tons!). I will post here or you can go to my website: M.I.A Siamese | Facebook This is the father of both of my girls' kittens, Shade & on the right is my girl, Mouse This is Mya (front) and Mouse (back)
