New things are happening in the back yard of Lovely Daughter #1. Can you see it? That's a momma cat, in the upper left corner of the photo below:
And this is one of her three kittens, checking out a bowl of kitten chow that LD #1 put out for them.
The momma cat gave birth to the kitten under this deck, roughly at the end of September:
Aaaand, he/she has siblings:
There are two gray-and-white kitties who look almost exactly alike, and one who is a bit more tabby-like, with distinct stripes:
They are feral, and there's a long way to go before they will trust my daughter, allow her to touch them, or walk into a humane trap. She hopes they will someday so that she can take them to a vet to be spayed/neutered. That is our ultimate goal.
But in the meantime, she's having fun watching them, from what they consider a safe distance.
Wish her--and all of them--luck.
