Reminds me of the time many years ago when my #2 son, who was 3 years old at the time, came out of his room in the middle of the night yelling, "Dad, Boots (our female pregnant cat) is falling apart all over my bed!!"

Sure enough, Boots had just come apart to the tune of 6 kittens. Old family lore now since that was 43 years ago.

Snow on the roof but with fire still in the hearth
