I was late putting food out for the critters this morning, though I had put some extra out last night, so I knew they would be fine.
While refilling their water bowls, Butterscotch came out of the sun room and I cuddled her a bit. After putting her down, I found bird feathers on my chest, from her paws! Then she took off.
I figured this would be a safe time to peak behind the box we used as part of our cat shelter in the sun room, and see if that’s where her kittens were.
I was wrong.
They weren’t hidden behind the box. I picked up the corner of the blanket, and they were just there on the swing bench cushion!!!
There’s nothing but the big crochet blanket to hide them.
Oh, my melting heart!
I can also see where the feathers came from. Butterscotch is still the mighty hunter, bringing food back with her when she returns to her kittens.
Over the next little while, I’m hoping we can find a way to close up both Butterscotch and Beep Beep, who should be having kittens pretty soon, in the sun room, with their own food, water and a litter box. Of last year’s kittens, there are still 3 that we were unable to socialize. I’m hoping we can avoid that, this year.
