Surprise Surprise


Yesterday, we found three little kittens in the basement window-well outside. Their mom is wild, not too friendly. I don't know how long they have been there or how old they are, not very since their meow is quite weak. After mom left, we took the screen off and put newspaper on top of the ground, a warm towel from the dryer and a small dish of water. They seem to love the warm towel, and it wasn't long until they were up and moving around a bit and drinking some water. When mom came back, she was quite suspicious but...didn't seem to mind the newspaper and towel, but kept an eagle eye on the window. The sun is out today and it is about 12 degrees warmer than yesterday, which should help a little. I do not want to bother them much, for fear mom will decide to move them and where they are, they are well protected from the elements and other predators. I will call our vet this afternoon and let him know we have them and just maybe...he will know of someone wanting a kitten. I can't have one because someone in the house is extremely allergic to cats, like we'd be at the hospital within five minutes. The mom had been hanging out under the porch during the winter, and I felt so bad for her, it was such a harsh, cold winter. She seems to have survived just fine, but I'd sure like to find a way to get her fixed so she doesn't keep having babies. Still, these little guys are so darn cute! There are three and they all look the same. I took the picture standing on a chair with books piled high; they were up close to the wall so I was not able to angle the camera to get a shot of all three. Maybe later, if they are moving around. I am always in awe of how animals just know what to do without having any books, doctors, or manuals to tell them what to do.

Thanks all for the lovely comments but unfortunately, she moved them late yesterday evening. I don't know if it was my intrusion or the two Mr. Toms who were hanging out close by. I hope to find them, my vet was willing to take the kittens, spay and neuter them and find them homes. I did put some food out for her yesterday, after she watched a bit, she would then come and get it.
I hope you lovely ladies are having a wonderful week. xOxOx
