Schrodinger's Litter
  
PNZY Eiko Ishioka
Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti Roan
Below: Baby Eiko at four weeks
PNZY Little Tiger
Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti Roan
Below: Baby Tiger at four weeks

On January 7th, PNZY Eiko gave birth to eight babies sired by PNZY Little Tiger. One baby passed away overnight after a rough delivery, but there are still five boys and two girls that are thriving. This litter was an ongoing mystery. First, Eiko seemed pregnant after her first visit with Tiger, and was gaining weight. Then much to my surprise, she came into heat and I had to put her back in with Tiger. Then we weren't sure Eiko was actually pregnant until almost before the babies were born. Mamma Eiko seemed to be in discomfort a little over a week and a half after her last visit with Tiger. Her respiration was a bit fast and she seemed reluctant to move much. I took her to the vet who could not detect anything wrong and also said she wasn't pregnant. The vet did a radiograph to see if there were babies and found none. Eiko's weight gain had stalled, so I thought maybe if she was pregnant, she was reabsorbing the litter. After a few days. she began to gain weight again, and I wasn't sure exactly what was going on with her. False pregnancy maybe? Then much to my joy, Eiko started giving birth the morning of the 7th. Sadly by late afternoon though, her contractions had stopped although I could still feel at least one more baby. I gave the vet a heads up I might be coming in with Eiko, but then she finally birthed the last baby on her own.

Since this litter was such a rollercoaster of emotions and we really weren't sure if there were babies or not until they were actually observed, I'm calling this litter Schrodinger's Babies! All are roans and there are some rexes. Colors will be russian blue agouti. Roan is a marking that fades to white over time and these babies will be mostly white by the time they are two years old.

The waitlist is full for this litter, but to get on the waitlist for future litters, visit my Adoption page for more info.
   
The Boys
Erwin Schrödinger, Dumbo Russian Blue Rex Roan (reserved Stella)

Erwin Schrödinger was a noted theoretical physicist and scholar who came up with a groundbreaking wave equation for electron movements. He was awarded the 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics. Most people remember him today for his thought experiment Schrödinger's Cat to explain quantum mechanics, in which a cat is both alive and also dead simultaneously in a box, until one opens the box and observes the cat.

   
Greebo, Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti Roan (Reserved Emma)
Greebo the cat from Terry Pratchett's book "Lords and Ladies", where Greebo comes up with a third state for Schrodinger's Cat, "bloody furious".
   
Meow, Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti Roan (reserved Stella)
In Space Dandy's season 2 episode "I Can't Be The Only One, Baby", which centers on string theory, one of the alternate dimension versions of the main character Meow is a Schrödingarian, an alien race composed by literal Schrödinger's cats.
   
Quantum, Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti Roan (Reserved Sheona)
Quantum theory is the theoretical basis of modern physics that explains the nature and behavior of matter and energy on the atomic and subatomic level.
   
Tardis, Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti Rex Roan (Reserved Sheona)
In the Doctor Who series, the Eighth Doctor is transformed into the destructive Zagreus after he is exposed to an anti-time explosion after he was forced to use his TARDIS to contain it- anti-time being as destructive to time as anti-matter is to matter-, but shifts between his own personality and the 'Zagreus' personality, he realizes that as long as he remains in the TARDIS, the universe cannot decide which personality is in control, noting the similarities between this situation and the Schrödinger's Cat experiment.
   
The Girls
Pixel, Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti Rex Roan (reserved PNZY)
In Robert A. Heinlein's story The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, a kitten named Pixel is of indeterminate existence, and as such, has the ability to turn up in places that are specifically sealed to outside access. When this ability is questioned, the answer is "He's Schrödinger's cat," leading to the response, "Then Schrödinger had better come get him."
   
Shady, Dumbo Russian Blue Agouti (Reserved Stephanie)
In the RPG Wild Arms 3, the character of Shady the Cat, owned by Maya Schrödinger, is based on Schrödinger's cat, and is claustrophobic as a result of the "experiment".
