Nova and Sebastian have been mating for 3 days.
Sebastian, even being so young, did not need much time to figure out what to do. Not like Frosty, who needed several months before he got it right.
The timing could not have been better as I had already put myself down for a week vacation the same week that she will have her kittens if the mating was succesfull. And
I think it was. Her heat stopped on day 3, and she usually show signs of being in heat for a full week. And they mated a lot !
It is difficult to plan the arrival of kittens to a week where I can stay at home every day, but this time it could not have
been timed better.
It is good to know that I can be there for her 24/7.
It will be less than 10 months since she gave birth to Acey, but she is in very good health. And because she only had one kitten the first time, she was not
exhausted caring for a bunch of kittens either.
In ab. 3 weeks I will know for sure.
