I know this is very early but I’m going to call the genders. Consider these tentative for now. I could be wrong. Everyone is doing fine, including Sahara. She “allowed” me to get the bedding completely changed this morning which always makes me feel better after a birth. She was a little more nervous during the morning weigh-in and only tried to drag a couple of the children back into the nest. All kittens have gained since birth and are quite vigorous.
Here are their genders and milk names, and for once I actually know their birth order. I attempted to color code them as they were born by tipping one ear with a sharpie pen. That ink does not have staying power however, so a few hours later I painted toes with nail polish. You can see a pink toe in the photo below. The two tabby patterns helps, so we have Classic Tabby (swirly like daddy Simba Kahn) – green & red and McTabby (stripes around the body like a tiger) – green & red.
India – First born and the smallest (Classic Tabby): Female
Intrepid – Second born (Classic Tabby): Male
Idaho – Third born (McTabby): Male
Ivanhoe – Fourth born and the largest (McTabby): Male
