Sebastian when he was just days old


I was feeling a little nostalgic and so I pulled out some of the pictures I took when little Sebastian was just days old. I think in this photo he is 3 days old. He's shown here as the middle kitten. Yaffa, even though a young mother, knew exactly what she was doing. Her instinct as mommy just kicked in from day one. Yes, she was awkward at first, not understanding how to nurse these little kids, but the kittens knew how to come to her. Yaffa is very gentle, caring and nurturing. She loves her kids. The whole experience with watching mommy kitty take care of her little kittens was truly amazing. It's also so amazing to know how wonderful these kitties have grown. Everytime I look at Sebastian, I still can't believe he used to fit in the palm of my hand.

I met Scout when he was 2 days old and he's been mine ever since. He was a litter of one, so he got all the food and attention from momma who used to carry him all around the house with her. When I brought him home at 6 weeks I felt so bad taking him from her. But then she had another litter of 4 kittens soon after.(My friend used to let her wander). sss's mom

Mom says she feels the same way looking at the boy. He's 10 and I can't imagine he ever fit inside her tummy. Love the baby pictor. Since I was left on a humane society doorstep, my youngest pictor is 8 months old, when I dopted Mom.

My friend's young cat had 2 kittens in her only litter and she was very protective. The girl kitten slept on me overnight, but the momma cat kept running back and forth between me and the closet (kitten home) to make sure she was safe. Finally, she trampled me to retrieve her kitten. You can't be too careful who your daughter sleeps with!
