A BIG Distraction and LOTS of Contractions!

 Lady (our cat) f.i.n.a.l.l.y. had her kittens!
Every day for the past 2 weeks we have been saying, "Oh, she will have them Today!"
And then another day goes by with no babies.
Yesterday was the day and we were able to watch a couple of them being born. It was quite exciting.
Oh my! - biology class for 5 and 7 year olds right in the barn.  :-)
Seven babies in total
(Free kittens!)

The girls thought you might want to see the proud father:
She was laboring and he was doing a puzzle - of puppies nonetheless.
