Remember this from a few days ago?
I suspected she may have had her kittens, so was staying close to home, wherever home is.
I was at K's house this morning when Gus showed up, I fed him a small handful of dry cat food, then instead of hanging around, he took off.
About a half hour later I heard meowing by the back door and went to tell Gus he'd had enough, but it was the tabby, looking very hollow and sounding so very hungry.
She's had her kittens and because she is now feeding them, her appetite is enormous. I put out some dry food and while she was crunching through that, Gus came back.
I had the distinct feeling he'd gone to get her after his meal, because he hung around watching me watching her. I gave him a bit extra, then sat and watched the new mum for a minute.
It didn't take me long to decide she was really, really hungry, so I opened a can of fishy cat food and shared it between them. they polished it off in no time at all, then went back to the dishes with dry food and finished those too.
Tabby came to me for a scratch around the ears and purred quite a bit, I'm thinking this is her first away from home outing since the birth. She sat and washed her face before leaping up and over the fence.
The babies aren't anywhere in K's backyard, it's fairly empty, nowhere for any cat to hide and the front yard is Missy's domain, she would never let another cat in there.
I may do a letterbox drop in her immediate neighbourhood to see if I can locate the owner to let him/her/them know that I would like at least one of the kittens when they are old enough.
