This weekend was rather a traumatic one for us and Opal. Opal showed signs of going into labour on Saturday and started pushing on Sunday. It became clear after a while that things weren’t going to plan and we rushed her off to see Catherine and Erin at Park Hill Vets in Tiverton (http://parkhillvets.moonfruit.com/). Unfortunately Opal needed a caesarian to get the remaining babies out. I cannot praise Catherine and Erin enough, they were efficient, caring and devoted to the job in hand.
We were thrilled to bring home Opal if a little dazed and confused with her 6 little bundles. She is being a good girl nursing while she recuperates and looking after her babies with a little help from us.
Meanwhile, Kizzy’s kittens are 2 weeks old and are doing really well.
