The picture you hoped your mother would destroy. Bonnie about to give birth to her first litter
Bonnie with her 7 kittens. During her labor she was frantic to have her mother with her but Mollie was nursing 4 babies herself.
Bonnie's solution was to fetch one of Mollie's kittens. My solution was to mark Mollie's kittens on the foot with a permanent marker. Mother and daughter with 11 kittens resting more or less comfortably
