Marble's Kitten Pics.
Badger and Roger.
First I should disclose that Larry (the editor) is my dad. I thought I'd share my kitten pics and let my dad (and the world :-)) know about the arrival of Marbles Kittens.
Little Marble finally gave birth early morning last Friday, she had three males and all are doing very well. I was called from my slumbers by Suzie my girlfriend but by the time I got my bad self downstairs two black and white kittens had arrived and a little ginger chap was on his way.
We have named the two black and white kittens Guinness and Badger, for obvious reasons, and the ginger one we named Roger. I don't know why but it seemed suitable.
Marble is very proud of her litter, and rightly so they are gorgeous little creatures, and is a very attentive mother. Jacob, my son, is knocked out by the new arrivals and wants to take them to school with him.
The picture above is of Badger and Roger, who is being camera shy. I will try and post a picture of Guinness as well.
Princess the dog is intrigued by the kittens, but seems to know not to try and play with them and treats them with respect. Here is a photo of Princess sharing her bed with Roger.
Well, I hope to share some more kitten pics here as the kittens get a little older and, I've no doubt, into all sorts of mischief!
Dad, you come and see Guinness, Badger and Roger very soon, okay?

Roger the Kitten with Princess.
Princess the dog is very friendly with humans, but not usually very friendly with other animals. Her motto might be “ Two legs good, four legs bad.”
When we brought Marble, who was then a kitten, home we were a little hesitant about how Princess would take to the new member of the household. We need not have worried. From the start the dog and cat were the best of friends and Princess treated Marble like the kitten was her puppy!
And now Marble has kittens of her own. Princess treats the new little ones with respect too. In the picture above she is sharing her bed with newborn Roger.
