I'd done a letterbox drop enquiring about the owner and possibly obtaining one of the kittens.
Then the other cat also had kittens!
I was disappointed to not receive any kind of reply and assumed the kittens had all gone to other homes.
This morning I was at my daughter's house when both mother cats appeared by the window for food.
Yes, she is still feeding them.....as I did, taking out half a can of tuna & sardine food.
A couple of hours later I looked out into the yard and saw a black and white kitten AND two grey striped kittens!
Playing in the grass, romping around my girl's yard.
Well, I raced outside to see them better and they took fright and skedaddled back under the fence to their yard.
This means there are still kittens there so I'm still hopeful of getting one.
I'll buy a small pet carrier and go knocking on their door.
I'll ask outright if they would be interested in letting me have a little grey striped girl.
They can say no, which will be a disappointment, but then at least I'll know for sure.
My other option is a beautiful three year old cat I've seen on the animal welfare facility website.
If I can find some way of getting there. I'm not sure any buses go past. I'll have to check on that.
But first....I'll ask about the babies. They must be three months old by now.
My daughter says they've been coming to the porch in the late afternoons and eating the dry food she leaves out for the mothers. Old enough to come home with me....
