The Nursery

Admittedly, the nursery looks a lot like the cat room. 😉 Just much cleaner than it was, all bleached and rinsed to get rid of any lingering calicivirus.

I’m happy with the nesting box, though:

IMG_4472It doesn’t look like much, but I was inspired to do this:

IMG_4479She feels safe and secure with the lid down, but I can get a better look at what might be going on. When the kittens arrive, I’ll extend the towel/bed out a bit and put a towel barrier so no kittens can roll or crawl out. Eventually, when I know she’s comfortable and relaxed, I’ll get a bigger, open box with lots of room.

Even with the heat on, the room is kind of chilly. I’ve hung a blanket over most of the window and hope that helps. Getting rid of the cool mist humidifier would probably help, but I think she still needs it a couple more days, at least. I have a heating pad, if necessary, but I’m not keen to leave it on when I’m not there. I think as long as Oprah is well fed and comfortable, she’ll keep the kittens warm enough.

She’s eating so well now — I even got her to eat kibble last night!

I tried to get pictures of her but it was yet another grey and dull day.


Without flash.


With flash.

Usually the flash will wash out a black cat, but this angle shows a lot of detail (no eyes though!). Even her poor red, raw nose. 😦
