Trixie - Day 5

This is Trixie. Trixie is Zoe's sister and a very, VERY determined young lady. This is a cat's cat, who knows what she wants and what she doesn't want, and is not afraid to tell you so.

Trixie is currently still at the stud's house and only recently stopped breeding. Normally you allow pedigreed cats to breed for approximately 3 days before putting a stop to it. This is to prevent the kittens to be to far apart in age - a kittern concived on day 1 of breeding and one concived on day 7 - if that was allowed - will obviously still be born the same day.

The duration of a cats' pregnancy, in Trixies case day 5, is calculated from the first day of mating.

Trixie is also shaved down, though a bit further back than Zoe so she has a short but very plush coat now. Still this should enable us to see her change as her pregnancy progresses. The picture above is about one month old. I will take a new one to post when she comes home, which should be tomorrow.
