Tas has an amazing litter and a wonderful mix of colours! Tas was fantastic during the birth and all the kittens were born in just over two hours. She is proving to be a really excellent mum and all seven appear to be strong and energetic. The two boys are the biggest and the sorrel female is the smallest but they are all a good size, especially as I didn't think Tas looked very big!! We are keeping a close eye on their weights and will supplement them if necessary but, so far, they all seem healthy.

At one week old, Tas's kittens are all doing really well. We had to supplement a couple of them over the weekend but they are all gaining really well now and Tas is a fantastically relaxed mother.

At two weeks old, Tas's kittens have learnt how to take turns to feed, so there is much less arguing now! They are all beginning to open their eyes - some have their eyes fully open. Tas is an amazing mum - it's hard to believe this is her first litter because she is so relaxed. Sadly the fawn female died two days after the group picture was taken. We are very shocked by it but we, and our vet, feel that it is just one of those strange kitten deaths that may have been a freak accident (our vet carried out a post mortem and couldn't find any reason for it).

At three weeks old, Tas's kittens are starting to play fight with each other. They have now reached the really cute, photogenic stage.

At nearly five weeks old, Tas's kittens are out of their kitten box and are enjoying chasing each other around (it was very hard to take their pictures, as they kept moving their heads! We are trying to encourage them to eat solid food but only one of the lilacs seems to enjoy it at the moment - hopefully they'll all realise how tasty it is soon so that Tas can have a break!

At six and a half weeks old, Tas's kittens are now all eating solid food. One of the lilac's still needs a little bit of encouragement but once she realises that it tastes nice, she tucks in! It took ages for me to get a picture of the two chocolates because they kept climbing on my lap every time I called them to look towards the camera!

At eight and a half weeks old, Tas's kittens are maturing fast and their individual characters are now showing. They are enjoying 'teaching' Ghost's kittens all their cheeky tricks.

At eleven weeks old, Tas's kittens are still enjoying tearing around the house and do a great impression of a herd of elephants! These all seem to be very cuddly, purry kittens. They will be having their second vaccinations next week and then off to their new homes a few days later.
