    Aaahh....that's really cute.

    Why not give the kittens ceph related names? That'll really confuse the neighbours when you call for them late at night!

    Good luck with the little beasts!

    Is Ink showing any signs of jealousy?

    You could build a bathysphere for the kittens, and have an inter-species
    "mixer."

    :shock:

    Congratulations to Fuzz. She must be exhausted.

    (I would've made all these comments in one post, but someone's put the whammy on my posting console.)

    :x

    Congratulations for the arrival of the kittens - a toast to new furballs!
    :glass:

    I'm impressed that Fuzz is unconcerned with humans handling her newborns. Our cat was less trusting.

    I am not convinced that this is un-cephalopod related. Look at the kitten in the human hand. There are razor-sharp, lethal hooks visible on the ends of those splayed toes!
    :meso:

    I have rescinded the whammy on your posting console (and everyone else's)... Little configuration mistake on my part. Sorry! :police:

    Welcome to all 5 kittens!

    Thanks everyone!!!!

    Quite an experience!!! Even had to cut acouple cords!!! She got tired towards the end.

    Poor Ink took the back stage the last 24, but got me back with the crab today!

    Ya know never thought about those razor-sharp, lethal hooks!!!!! Maybe ceph related!!!! :mrgreen:

    Fuzz has been so tolerant through all this! Quess we're really lucky! She does get a little wary when people outside of our family came by to see her babies!


    Heres 2 more shots!

    STEVE'S having kittens!!

    Seems to be a kitten inundation... Steve, who professes to have no interest in 'vertebrate filth' nonetheless has three cats already and looks to be adopting a fourth... he found her (we know she's female, see attached) on the road and hasn't been able to find the owners yet. Not that he's trying very hard. ;)
    She's got two different colored eyes and I reckon she should be called David Bowie...

    Nice shot of the biologist at work. :shock: Now would someone please explain to me why it is that I've just been listening to Bowie today, reading a Bowie article, and now taking part in an odd conversation regarding Bowie-esque cats--with slightly addled biologists and ceph phreaks on a cephalopod website? Bowie would relish the absurdity of it all. :jester:

    As for a name for Kitty...how about "Lady Stardust?"

    Kittens continued!

    Wow! Steve you really analize EVERYTHING :shock:

    I am a cat hater myself but happen to have last count since Sat night, 8 felines!!!! Figure that!!! They really are addicting as they are all so different. Even the kittens at 4 days old are showing personalities! They even fight over who gets a nipple!!! Funniest thing I ever saw!!! We're getting attached to one that was born with one eye open! Today, my daughtor noticed all eyes are now opening!

    Here's another 2 shots! And today they are 1 week old!!!!!!

    Awww they are sooo cute, almost makes me want to rush out and get a Kitten!! Then I looked at my dog and came to my senses :D I still wouldn't mind (& I'm a dog person, so your Kits must be REALLY cute!) but my dog Seamus feels like this :x about cats, still I forgive him he finds octis endlessly interesting!!!!

    Saaaaay, you really want a kitten? I know a teuthologist, in your country even, who's looking to pawn off Kitty #4 to a good home... he might even be willing to deliver. ;)

    uhhhhhhh, I might but Seamus's main aim in life regarding Kitties is to see how many small bits he can shred them into! not a good look!!
