Ah yes, our little mama kitty…we have kept up with her for over a month since we discovered she had kittens. Outside there is only one little one left following her around, but it’s always a fun day when mama kitty decides to hang out at the homestead!
She looks pregnant again, but I’d have to do some research on that point. Her babies are only about 2 1/2 months old and I’m not sure cats can get pregnant that fast. Having been an outdoor cat for as long as I can remember seeing her out by the gully, it is just as likely that she is now showing signs of worms since she has food at the ready at various houses these days. While she is warming up to us humans here, she is still very much feral. She does let me get relatively close to her, and I have been able to carefully gently brush the top of her head, but only for a second.
Needless to say, you can tell by her coloring that the little calico kitten we managed to catch and bring indoors has her mama’s colors. Not bright and bold but soft and smoky. The little kitten’s eyes are the same color too! While I had concerns about taking in the little calico a few weeks back; seeing how rapidly mama kitty’s other babies have disappeared (and likely perished) I am glad we brought her other young-un indoors. At least we know the little kitty-kitty has a chance at a life. (We still haven’t sorted out a name for her)
While I would be so pleased to bring little mama in to the vet, it is virtually impossible to actually lay hands on her to tame her to bring her in. So, we are left with looking out for her from a close distance as best we can. Still, it is always fun when mama kitty decides to hang out at the homestead!
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
