Oh dear. We live in the woods and are used to seeing wildlife—lots of bird nests, baby birds, squirrels, deer, rabbits, etc. But yesterday my husband heard a noise in the flower bed and pushed the flowers aside with the shovel, expecting to find a critter. Imagine his surprise when he found these little ones:
No, we do not own a cat.
We have noticed a cat, apparently a stray, around the area (we live on five acres of woods) occasionally, but certainly not regularly. These kittens look to me to be about 3-4 weeks. Now I’m worried because I haven’t actually seen the mother cat coming or going, so I have to watch carefully now, to see if they are being fed. They look well-fed so far, but what if she is not feeding them?
Oh dear. I wonder if she brought them here from where they were born? I just can’t imagine they could be this old without our having a clue that they were there. They ARE on the side of the house where we don’t frequent. But still.
