I know this will take the wind out of the sails of the previous post, but it deserves it’s own spotlight. Sequoia has been a conundrum, as you all know from an earlier statement on her “condition.” She went into her first heat, mated, showed some signs of pregnancy, but was not as obvious as I’ve grown to expect. Yesterday I took her to the vet for an ultrasound and to have her examined. The vet was a little surprised that I was asking for a pregnancy determination on day 50, but after palpating her, he didn’t know either. The ultrasound shows that our little Sequoia is, in fact, pregnant! With ONE kitten. It appeared to be well formed and we could see its little heart beating. The vet is about 90% sure it’s only one, but left the back door open for a possible second hidden in there. I believe he’s correct and we can expect just one kitten. This will be the smallest litter I’ve ever had. A ‘singleton.’ And he or she is likely to be a very fat, spoiled little kitten. The due date is around September 4 – 10th. I may be taking the nursery away from the current litter at night for the next two weeks so that Sequoia can start feeling comfortable in there.
