I shared pictures of Mama Cat’s kittens earlier this year, but I’ve never been able to get a picture of her even though we see her around every now and then. Last weekend when I was outside watching the birds, she was sneaking through our bushes.
After giving me the stare-down, she finally decided to pop out in the open for a quick portrait.
I’m happy to report that three of her kittens have survived, including the two in my photos. I don’t know how many there were originally – they are all very wary of people and the two black ones are hard to tell apart, especially when they are running away or hiding. Her kittens weren’t with her this time, but the last time I saw them all together, they looked like they were getting big enough to be off on their own soon.
