Kittens

First of all, it is still winter.  Not really the time of year for kittens to make their entrance into this world.  Good thing it is warm in the barn.  It is also a good thing that the mother cats are all helping take care of each others kittens.  I actually don’t know for sure which mother belongs to the one set of kittens, because they are both in the box, curled around the kittens.  And they trade off, so if one leaves, the other generally stays, except when it is supper time.  Then both mothers leave.  The nanny of the other set, who miscarried hers a couple weeks ago, now thinks both these litters are hers and keeps moving the older ones to where the little ones are.  These two are from litters that are two weeks apart and you can definitely see the difference in size.  One is even trying to open his eyes.

As an added bonus, here is an amusing picture of the icicles that fell off the roof.  Due to the snow pile being as high as the building, they didn’t even break.

About Kathy

I'm a twenty-something who loves animals, farming, photography and cooking/baking. Luckily enough, photography works really well with the other three subjects, so I carry my camera around practically everywhere. Other than that, my life is pretty uneventful.
