It gives me great pleasure to present the first CP newborn- "Kitten 1" was born this morning at 00:40. Resembling some kind of slimey miniature cow, Clive's first born is healthy and squeaking away. In true spazzy Clive fashion she didn't have a clue what to do and completely ignored it, so I had to get in there and free it from it's fluid sac, and cut its umbilical cord for her. I did, however, refrain from eating the after-birth.
"Kitten 2" was born at 01:45, requiring similar assistance. A livelier tyke that Kitten 1, Kitten 2 seemed more interested in scaling Mt Clive than trying to get on a nipple.
"Kitten 3" followed shortly after, fully emerging at 02:05. He's pretty spazzy too, they all are. They're still heavily involved in some kind of kitten bundle at the moment, they're not feeding just yet but I'm pretty sure they'll work it out soon enough...
I've filmed the whole thing too, and will endeavour to cut it, if i can drag myself away from these tiny beasts. So don't expect it particularly soon.
All in all, total success - Clive and her three babies are fit and well, and I'm quite sure this is the best thing that's ever happened.
More updates to follow.....
