Exciting times in our household. Yesterday we have collected our new seal point Birman kitten.
Over the last couple of months the breeder encouraged us call in and see how the our kitten was progressing. She was one of five, so certainly a good sized litter. She was so tiny when we first saw her.
Later visits showed the babies growing up and playing happily together while their Mum Angelina watched on. Angelina is a blue point Birman and the kittens are a mixture of both seal and blue points.
Kittens and their Mum
Gemma is not too sure what’s happening in her life just now – where are her brothers and sisters and her Mum? I’m sure she will settle down in a day or so, and stop hiding in corners and under the bed! We are giving her space to find her feet, after all, it is a big change for her.
First day home hiding in a corner
But she is slowly getting braver, comes out from under the bed when she is called, and has spent some time this morning playing in her tunnel, attacking the dangly ball hanging in the front opening with gusto. Hunger has sent her to polish off her first meal with us, and she has found and used her dirt box. What a clever kitten! I’m sure that in a few more days she will be much more settled.
