kitten photos

Here they are! The first photos of the new kittens. They are four weeks old tomorrow:) Included are photos of mama kitty and papa kitty, and neighbor kitty.

Per previous posts I have mentioned that mama and papa kitty came to us (adopted us) last year. They have stayed here with us since, and are considered our outdoor cats : ) Really they started off as our neighbors cats... we live in the country, and they soon decided they prefered to stay at our camp:) although they still venture back & forth to the neighbor. So in actuality they kindof have two homes. I think they are really smart though because they know we are cat lovers over here, hence taking up residence outside the parameters of our home. We love them.

Our cats took awhile to get used to seeing 'other' cats roaming outside our door. But a year later, I think they are getting used to it :) ??

The kittens room is within our shed which has shelter above and thier own safe environment. In a week their paws will get to touch the green earth for the first time, as I plan on taking them on their first adventure within our yard to feel the grass.

I placed three small rocks within the kittens 'crib' and they love it. It offers a cool surface to lay on. We also have a fan blowing down on them for fresh air outside, which they seem to enjoy as well. Thier little furrs blow in the breeze. So cute.

Here are the photos...

What cute kittens! It's so nice of your mom to take in the kitties.

My mom said it was a little hard to read the orange print on the dark background. She said something about needing to get a stronger pair of reading glasses on.

Much easier to read!

You must have been signed in under your other blog for the name to be wrong. Mom does that all the time on FB.

So you've got a "houseful" of outdoor cats. :) Sounds like you're popular in the neighborhood. The kittens are cute with good looking mom and dad.

More precious new lives in the world... we are sure their mother will do her best to raise them with care. Any help that she receives from humans like your mom is even better.

What a delightful little family. We hope the kittens do well, they look very sturdy and healthy. Wish you the best of luck in getting Mummy and Daddy in for neutering this time around too! It can be really tricky we know.

Mummy cat is so beautiful.
