Default Keep 'em all!?!??

Hello Everyone
I am new here, and I have joined because I'm looking for some advice, & a place to share my thoughts and photo's of my kittens.

My cat (Lil) had 5 adorable kittens on the 30th April. They are now just gone 2 weeks old, and havn't changed their to-die-for looks! She had 3 girls (Calico's) and 2 Boys, (Black and white). Origionally, we intended on keeping the girls,,, but now we are seriously considering keeping all of them! Lil is going to be neutered soon, which makes these babies ever so precious to us. Lils mother came to us as a 5 week old kitten, and had her 2 babies (Lil and Theo) when she was 11 months. We feel so close to Lil, and dont ever want to lose any part of her!
Space is no option, as we have a large back garden and a nice house for them to live in. Money isn't an option either tbh!

We just dont know whether we can keep them all happy together in the long run. Every kitten will be neutered/spayed @ 6 months,

Any advice & thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks xxxxx

Default Hi there!

Hi to you, Lil and the babies and welcome What is your name and where are you from?

Ooh, if I was in your position I wouldn't hesitate to keep all of them! If you have the room and are able to look after them all properly then I would go for it! There are lots of people here who have 5 or 6 cats with no problems and if they all grow up together that's fab. Hope you can post some pics, they sound adorable

Thank You! My name is Gillian and I am from Cork, In Ireland.
Yes, 6 cats doesn't sound like many, but we already have 3!! Meaning we would have 8 cats !!

Does that sound like too many? HeHe! Of course once they are all neutered it shouldn't be much of a problem, and as you said, all of the kittens will grow up together.

I will get some pictures soon

Hi Gillian, I knew it you're from Ireland ... it's shown in your profile member name...
Welcome to you and your gangs ! Concats on the new additions ... can't wait to see their pictures. They all sound fabulous ! Honestly, if I were you, I would keep them all, and of course I'll definetely remember to spay/neuter them (8 are quite many) !

I would also keep them if you can afford it, they will keep you on your toes, and keep you entertained. good luck.
