|Well, I just recently happened to do this little something for someone else, but when I noticed this post...|
...well, you may have heard about "Proud Papas" getting together and showing off pictures...

|I had originally packed that "Ares compilation" to show on another forum, as well, but then thought it could also fit purrfectly here.|
Like Google, Mary was also hissing to her kittens after they crossed 5 or 6 months of age. She's just telling them she's done with them and to go find their own life and especially stay clear to avoid the "obvious" that could no longer happen anyway.
|Of course now that they are nearing two years old (May 27), she is still doing it and they still haven't gone away (however, they tend to not press their luck with that cranky old psychocat and give her a great deal of space.) |
It's just that every once in awhile after an encounter she looks at me like "it's all your fault- I didn't want these things ! Why didn't you stop it sooner?"
of course Penny looks at me the same way when her brothers are around...

|Yep, looks like the ideal for the female cat is, indeed, giving her offspring away. Even Mary must have found it strange to have them still around past a given age (I'd say 3-4 months). Still, I regret following suggestions to spay her after her first litter. First of all because I remember her vitality and level of activity while nursing the kittens: she looked immensely satisfied, happy, active, like never before and never after. And second, because I'd have been happy too, to see a second litter. After having been spayed, Mary seemed no longer the same to me, despite being still pretty active from an objective standpoint (even too much, given that she died, basically, while coming back from a large garden where she was having lots of fun hunting small critters).|
