here kitty kitty

We had a wonderful weekend here in Virginia .. Tiny, Lucky, Moose and Brooke all went out and played both days for hours and hours until they were tuckered out and ready for bed. Of course Mama, Melon and Scotch were out too.

This morning I noticed that the babies eyes have started to open. So far I think I have several babies spoken for and the mama cat. :) I am not planning to keep any and I have a few others that need homes too ...

Last night ... This morning

After the hiss last night I decided to leave the door off the dog crate to see if maybe mama moo needed to be away from the babies for a bit and too see what she would do. I have her in a room that has a desk in front of the window so she gets some sunlight and with full run of the room she can look out and get a break from the babies. The room is the warmest in my house and fairly small. I moved her litter box and food bowls out of the crate but close enough for her to see them from inside the crate. I thought she would move the babies from the crate in the night but this morning they were still in there and she was with them - right in the middle of it. I put her wet food out and fresened her water and dry food and cleaned her box. She did let me pet her and the babies with no thoughts of moving.
Seems things are going well.

I cleaned out Mama Moos cage, cleaned her dishes and box and brought in a clean towel... slid her and the babies forward put the clean towel all the way in and moved each baby ... I think I have 1 male and 3 females ... I was petting Mama and trying to get the dirty towel out and she hissed at me ... no growling, no moving just a single hiss ... i petted her and talked to her and got her some more wet food and she moved ... I dunno ... I kinda took the hiss as a good thing ...

the new Mama Cat and her Babies

Not the best picture I have taken but ... you can see her and a few babies .. Im not wanting to upset her too much considering what all she has been through. However she is using the box, eating good and obviously taking great care of the babies. Ill give her a little more time to get use to things before I mess with them too much. She has been letting me touch her and the babies without getting upset and I dont want to press my luck ... yet

These 2 are from about 2 minutes 9:40pm ... she has let me change the towel pet her pickup all the babies change her box and water and food and take pictures ... Im done harissing her for the evening ..


Oh friends do I have a story for you ... settle in ...

I had my Saturday all planned ... get up, shower, load the truck with trash go to the dump, head to town to the mall to pick up an easter bunny gift come home and mow for the rest of the day ... Well obviously that didnt happen ... Shon called at 8:30 I was puttering around feeding the cats and cleaning a little. He had left at 5:30 to do a live burn at a burn building about an hour away. He is an instructor for fire academy. He called to tell me that while doing the walk-thru of the building a cat jumped from the second floor then they heard crying and found 4 babies in the corner behined a barrel on some hay. They wraped them in a blanket and but them in the front seat of a fire truck.
Quickly I showered got my gear together (food, towels, cage, trap etc.) and was on my way. I was there by 10:30 - I treked the mountain side looking for kitty .. no one had seen her. Babies were in a pile in the warm truck. I headed off to find KMR for them as they would be hungry soon. Got back .. fed them ... and started making worse case plans .. it had been 4 hours since anyone had seen the mama ... I was thinking of where to place the babies so she could find them, hoping she would not take them back into the building that was curently 1800 degrees and would be hot hot hot until Monday night ... then one of the 40 fire fighters there said ... I just saw the mom .. shes over there ... quickly I got the trap and bated it with a kitten ... and mama was caught in about 10 minutes...
I transferred her to a cage and put the babies in a box where she could hear them, fed her a can of food adn let her be for a bit before taking off ... on the way she ate her food and had a little time to calm. I gave her, her babies back and left them alone to calm. Late Saturday night I moved her into a large dog crate where she could have room for a litter box, food, water and baby area.

Mama is black and white ... there are 4 babies all seem happy and Im thinking they are only days old. No open eyes and imbellical cords still attached. I will take some pictures and post them soon. Mama will let me bet her but shes stiff and wide eyed when I do it. She is young but a good mama cat. Shes eating well and using her box but shes not too friendly. However she and her babies are safe, fed and warm.
