Surprise! Guess What's Invaded Our Backyard?

Tuesday, August 5, 2008


I came home from work on Friday, and B10 was dancing in the front room he was so excited.

About six months ago, we rescued a small grey kitten. Gideon was fixed and found a wonderful home through a local vet, and we saw the mother a couple of times since then. Gideon was the only kitten in that litter, but I've put out food for the mother when I've seen her around.

Apparently she had 4 kittens in our backyard about 6 weeks ago.

We've not caught them yet (this will require Cookie's help), but I've been working on feeding them and giving them fresh water. The mother associates the "good" things with me. It's funny how she'll still growl when I open the door, but she doesn't move to run away.

We'll name the kittens when we determine gender for sure. For now, I'm pleased to introduce to you:

Big Ears (AKA: Panther)

Safari (AKA: Puma) - being eaten by Lion


and Princess.

Safari is named after a cat that Cookie had for over 15 years. She passed away earlier this summer, and this kitten has the EXACT same markings.

So, who out there wants a new kitten?
