Pregnant cats should not climb trees

Moni's cat that came from Łódź to become a permanent part of the household is pregnant. Liluś eats more, spends more time resting on rugs or radiators and is less frisky. However, that other call of nature - the imperative to ascend trees - proved stronger than the maternal instinct. She spent all night up this silver birch. But by morning the thought of a full cat bowl prompted her to make a cautious descent into my waiting arms.

Being a tortoiseshell-and-white tabby, her offsprings' colour will be determined by gender. Only the females will acquire tortoiseshell colouration; Lila's male kittens are more likely to reflect the father's coat. Five or six weeks to go...
