We did not plan a new litter from Angelique until mid winter, 2021-22.  Gifter had other ideas. In a way, this was good for now we have kittens carrying the TR gene from both parents. The gene is recessive. Both parents are now proven single gene carriers. We knew for sure that Angelique carried one gene  but were not sure about Gifter, the sire. This proves that he is also a carrier. We have at least one Tennessee Rex kitten to add to the development of the breed

We will have photographs pf the new kittens posted here within then next day or two once mother Angelique has settled down.

DELIVERY

Angelique insisted on having her kittens on my bed. There were towels handy and they were spread out in time. Her first kitten was born at 22 minutes after midnight.  She was still cleaning up at 42 minutes after the hour and her back end was just about in my face. As I tried to mover her kitten appeared with no obvious contractions occurring. 

All was quiet  for about two hours. I built  a barrier to keep the kittens on the bed with the gentle purr of a mother cat bringing on some needed sleep.  Then it happened. There was a stirring on the bed. Angelique grabbed one of the kittens and jumped to the floor and into her maternity box. She was in labor again. I moved the other kitten in with her as she delivered kitten three. Two minutes later number four arrived among the hurried cleaning of the third one. She did this once before, having her last two in rapid succession.

But this time her fifth and last kitten came just three minutes later. She had her paws full . . .  I help clean the last two enough to be sure they were breathing and did not disturb her again.

At about 0720  she had the five kittens all lined up in a row and busy nursing. A great night.  

It wasn't long before this litter demonstrated  a trait from their dad. This will be a very active litter just like his last litter with Angelique. Even at only nine hours old they were fighting over mom teats, something that usually does not happen until several days after birth.



Angelique's July Kitten Weights   Vernor has moved to his permanent home and all the cats here are concerned. Vuono, his litter and playmate is sulking and taking it very hard. This shows up in his weight chart.  he has been staying very close to me and is sleeping under my covers and tight against my torso. There were four other litter mates that have moved away a month ago and that was also hard on him but he still had Vernor as company

The chart will now be revised to show just Vuono since he will be the only kitten remaining here until he moves to another Tennessee Rex breeder.
