Hi All Hope your Mothers Day went well.That stray cat I was trying to care for all winter survived and had kittens. Herby named her Fruit Cake and she surprised me with her three kittens on Sat. Here is a photo of them. They are pretty gentle and I set up that insulated box for them as where ever they were living they apparently were evicted. They were sheltering under a bush in the rain Sat so now the kittens at least are sleeping in the box as of lat night. I was able to pet two of them so they are pretty gentle and have not chased any birds or squires so far. Any idea how I can have them fixed for free and who to ask to pick them up and return them after? Do any of you have a spare dog house you need to get rid of for them?Here is a photo of them if you see them around.Thx!R.D.
