Kaylee's Babies

Kaylee is a little black female cat who found me at my parents' house. My mom already has a female indoor cat and she doesn't get along with any other cats. Kaylee was living under one of the outbuildings. When I saw how friendly and sweet she is I decided to bring her home with me. I could tell the first time I saw her that she was going to have kittens. She is such a small cat that she was showing after only a couple of weeks apparently. I took her to the vet and she did a sonogram. She said Kaylee would have at least three kittens in a couple of weeks. Well... I waited and waited... and waited some more. Meanwhile, Kaylee is getting rounder and rounder. Her belly started to resemble a bowling ball. I didn't see how she could get much bigger. It seemed obvious to me she was going to have more than three kittens.
Kaylee a couple of weeks before her babies were born.
 Finally, she had the kittens. I had to babysit the older ones and keep them warm while she was having the younger ones and taking care of them. I couldn't believe it when she had six babies. Four black and two gray. She was exhausted by the time the ordeal was over.
Kaylee's one day old kittens.

Meal time! One day old.
Kaylee is such a wonderful and patient mama and it's obvious she loves her babies.

My Captive Highlander is one of the stories in Kissing the Highlander.

Can unexpected passion and a little ancient magic turn enemies into lovers? 

During a fierce storm on the west coast of Scotland, Shamus MacKenzie barely survives a galley wreck only to be captured and held for ransom by the enemy MacDonalds. Aided by the gift of second sight, Maili MacDonald, sister of the ruthless chief, senses the handsome, dark-haired stranger will somehow be important in her life. Compelled to help him, she insists on providing him food and a healer to see to his injuries. She knows she is daft to fall in love with this captivating warrior after one forbidden kiss but cannot help herself. With each visit from Maili, Shamus finds his thoughts consumed by the enchanting lass. Can he convince her to help him escape the dungeon and prevent the impending battle between the two clans?

What a good mommy Kaylee is. Sounds like her life was rough for a while. Now she can love her babies while being in a loving home. Good for you Vonda!

OMGosh! I want to come to your house and hold them all! I love cats and kittens. The photos remind me so much of my little Zach when he was only 3 three weeks old and lost. I'm so glad we found him. He weighed 12 ounces! He's now 14 and we have him on a diet to keep the fat off, lol.

Thanks so much for sharing, Vonda. The photos made my day.
