The mother of my four babies from last summer (Miss Delilah) has a litter of six 5-week old kittens. They've been hard to get photos of since they are trained to hide. However, the last few days my efforts paid off, especially my shots today.
There are a gray & white, mostly black with a little white, siamese looking one, a pair of twins (they look just like my China), and a brown & white tabby who I named Oliver.
These babies were born under one of the houses behind mine. And Delilah has been bringing them into my yard some of the mornings. So some of these photos were taken in my yard and the others were taken at the home where their "den" is.
When they are in my yard, they tend to be around my AC unit. The photo above shows where they go to hide from me, lol.
All these little ones need homes. So if you're looking for a kitten, look no further. My plan is to catch them in the next few weeks and take them to a local place that will find them homes. I may end up neutering and keeping Oliver around here though because I really like him (photo above and below).
Smudge has been like a psudo-mom to these kittens. I think Miss D is tired of them and Smudge seems to have no trouble filling as mommy. Her hormones are sill working their way out of her system. So this is probably good therapy for her.
It's been really funny to watch. She'll bathe them, scruff them and play with them. She's a little rought with them sometimes knocking them around, but they seem to be okay. She's been a good "auntie."
I've been making progress with Miss D, but mark my words... she's mean as a snake. I do plan to get her spayed whenever I can finally trap her.
She will eat from one bowl while I am filling another about 2 feet away. That's the closest I can get to her. She's between 4 and 5 years of age. So I've had my work cut out for me. But I feel like I should be able to nab her by the end of the summer.
One thing about Miss Delilah, she sure throws some pretty babies.
Thanks for looking. Let me know if you want to come get a kitten. They all need good homes and would do especially well on a farm where they can be outdoors.
