How Is Indigo?
Just fine, thanks!
Every time a baby left, she looked for it a bit, peering anxiously under furniture and calling, then seemed to lose interest. When the last two went this weekend, she'd just gone into season and was far more interested in calling to the boys than paying her babies much attention!
The day the babies left, she went back on Ovarid (contraception for cats!) in part because that was what was planned anyway, continually calling is not good for cats, and in part to sort out the chin acne. So she was yowly for a few days, but in a 'I need a MANCAT' way, not a 'where are my babies?' way- and yes, the difference is fairly obvious if you've ever heard a Tonk in heat!!! Since then, she's just reverted totally back to her carefree pre kitten days, lots of cuddles, lots of games, back to normal, in short. She's not in Mama mode any more.
So that's great! I was worried she'd pine, but it doesn't seem to have worked out that way.
