The Arrival

Dear Loco,

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG I’ve just been dying to tell you all about today.


Luna went into labour today. She started bleeding, many times just over my lap, and I was so worried.

I took her to the vet, and he said it would be a difficult birth because there were 2 babies where there would normally be 4 (so, they were bigger). He said if she doesn’t give birth by the 20th, we should come back to him. And that she was having 2 kittus.

OMG, you should’ve just seen her dumb, goofy face when she heard the heartbeat. She definitely knew!!

We come back home, and she runs off into the cupboard. I think she just needs her space, and suddenly I hear crying…

We’ve called the doctor, and he says “Next baby should come in 3 hours OR call me”. In the meantime, I’m obviously fervently googling. Turns out cats can have something called “interrupted labour“. Because she’s absolutely going about her usual business – nursing and caring for her newborn – NOT PUSHING.

We take the x-rays to Doctor Asha, next door, and ask her what she thinks – she says this can happen.

So, we leave it be for the next day and try to have some faith.
