Ten. Ten kittens in total. Not like last time, when Briti came up with a sweet duo: Paddy and Dushi. Ten no less. They all look pretty special, but still: ten. Briti and Paddy had better enjoy every second of it, ten children from the both of them is more than enough for the world to enjoy.
At least Paddy has now been convinced to move to a new box with her family. Much more comfortable for both mothers, now they have room to stretch out completely and even change position without upsetting the entire balance of twelve cats in one box. (It must be said: ‘the balance’ was a pretty sweet state to observe: two cats purring, accompanied by the sound of tenfold suckling.)
In fact the new situation offers so much room that Paddy decided to move all kittens in one box, hers, during the night. Only grudgingly would she accept that the kittens are divided equally among both mothers again. Still, the slightest kittensqueeking during a nipplefight is enough for her to jump in to her mothers box and grab a kitten to take home again. Her fellow-mother Briti is not too bothered about it.
Nonetheless, when the same happened as Briti had left her children briefly for a drink of water, she nonchalantly took hold of one kitten in Paddy’s box on her way back to her own. Thus keeping the score even.
