Kittens!

You can tell it is spring. Half my posts are animal/baby related. Skip, one of the mama cats, brought in her two kittens today. She was very good at hiding them and they are at least 6 weeks old.
Skip is a very small cat so it is likely these two are all she had (that is not her in the background, that one is a male. Skip looks like the white and gray kitten.). They are terrified and hissing at everything but as you can see Michelle has made friends already.
Our outdoor cats always eventually bring their kittens to the porch when they want them to start eating on their own because that is where we feed all the cats. I'll probably buy some canned cat food to give them until they get a little bigger.

  1. Seriously cute! Can I have the black one please? How cheeky that the mother cat says that feeding the kittens is your job from now on.

    1. He is actually dark grey and yes, you can have him, send your address, he can fit in a bubble mailer with holes in it, lol.
      I had to seriously warn Michelle NOT to bring them inside. She has probably spent most of the day out on the porch.

  2. How cute! I think one of our outdoor cats is pregnant, as well. I don't know if I will be able to have the resolve not to bring the adorable kitties inside.

  3. Wow, between the kittens and the chicks and the ducklings I am quite sure that you are very busy! I'd better not show my kids your pictures or I will never hear the end of it...

  4. Gosh how I love kittens. (but in full disclosure, we have three cats, that's enough, for now, lol). However, I WOULD be right there on the porch with y'all, ha.
