and the answer is.....

OK - so it really wasn't MUCH of a least not around here.  :) Though several people guessed it was - there are only 7 of us close, but no treat for you.  MOL

The cat advocate at the shelter went to a neighboring county (the same one that gave us Daisy) and brought back 3 moms with various kittens. The shelter didn't have any info on the mom we thinks she is pretty young. The other shelter named her Rapunzel and our shelter is keeping the name. We do know that all three moms have their own kittens plus orphans. Which is how we got this:
hey lady...what is with the flashy box thing???

Yep - there are 8 little heads in there. The estimate is they are about about 14 days old today. However, mom suspects based on open eyes and size, the 2 black kittens and the tuxedo may be the orphans are are a couple days younger.  Rapunzel is a good mom - if not already a bit tired of this many kittens.  :)  But she is a good momma cat and is taking good care of them - they are clean and have stuffed bellehs. Mom picked up one kitten the other day and he SCREAMED and Rapunzel just gave mom this "you gonna put that back now?" expression. The first couple of days there was some hissing at mom by the kitts, which cracks her up.

We have 4 boys and 4 girls. Once again, subject to mom changing her mind.  hahaha

That mom kinda looks like Cookie - mom was laughing when she picked up this crew last week. Normally the shelter names the kittens, but since they are pretty young and there were lots of them, they are letting the foster families name the kittens. Mom is thinking about a space theme: Aurora, Corona, Gemini, Hubble, Nasa, Orbit, Rocket and Sputnik. It appears we have pairs this time around too: pair of black, paid of tabby with white, pair of buff and white tabbies and pair of tuxies - one black one gray.  Everyone finally has their eyes open. The black tuxie is gonna be trouble - he can get out of the bed and once he does he SCREAMS about it. Mom has had to put him back more than once.  Mom will have to sit down with a piece of paper and a pen in their room in order to remember which color is which gender.
