Camera Critters

I'm very excited to join in this new meme by blogging friend, Misty Dawn! The meme is called Camera Critters and you can post pictures of any kind of critter, whether or not it's your pets, animals at the zoo, bugs, anything. Just make sure you or someone in your house took the pic :)

My picture is of our cat Stars when she had her kittens last year. It was a surprise for me because I thought it would be another week before she had them, but one morning I went down and found 4 tiny black kittens there (you can't see one in the pic, the runt is under her front leg). We no longer have any of them, but MIL took the runt so we get to see him when we are there. So here's Stars with Devil, Tiger, Junior, and (unseen) Monkey.

Awwwwww! I remember the first time Mokey had kittens - it was such a treat, because although I had many pets in my life, I had never had one of those pets give birth. It was so very special and exciting for me!

Stars looks like she possibly has some Siamese in her. Am I right? My Mokey has some Siamese in her, and that's where she gets her ummmmm 'attitude' from ;-)

This is a fantastic pic, my friend. Thank you SO much for joining Camera-Critters! It means SO much to me that you joined!

We love surprises like that. When our first litter of Golden Retriever puppies were born, we had no idea until my 5-year old son walked down the steps and asked what was beside Aphrodite. :)

Misty- I don't know what her breeding is, she's a "mutt" lol, though she might have some siamese in her, one of the inlaws cats looked like it had some siamese and that's where we got her.

Sanni- Monkey went with the inlaws, Tiger went to one of Hubby's coworkers, Junior went to the pet store and they say he got adopted very quickly (he was my favorite), and unfortunately Devil passed away at 6wks old.

Tammy- yep all black, though I was hoping we'd get one looking like Stars lol. Two of them did have very faint stripes and Monkey ad white tips around his neck for awhile but grew out of it.

Thanks for all the comments. Stars sure is a beautiful cat and she was a good mommy, I felt bad when we gave the kittens away, she was so sad, but we couldn't afford to keep them all.
