Every time my cat has had kittens , it has been on the same shelf in my closet .(I keep no clothes on it) lol and this is my significant other holding one of the newborn kittens and the lighting was perfect.
My mom's black lab had a litter of 10 pups. Here they are having a pile on nap at only 1 week old.
A stray cat birthed five adorable kittens under our house. She eventually took three away, but left these cuties: Amy Pond and Sally Sparrow.
Sweet dreams, little guys.
If the question is "wouldn't mama be proud," then the answer in this particular photo is a resounding "YES."
