Normally, there are seven who gather around the food dish in the mornings -- the two mamas and five kittens.
Cali Mae realizes I'm watching
But yesterday was a bit different....
Cali Mae and three of the kittens didn't show up..... all day.
The strange thing was that she kitten-napped all of Patio's kittens -- the two golden ones and the little black one.
Apparently, she left her own kittens for Patio to babysit.
But perhaps they can't tell who's who when they were all born at the same time.
I worried and fussed, and fussed and worried. All day. Darn those kitties for taking a piece of my heart.
But this morning, who should appear but Miss Cali Mae, along with one of the kittens she absconded with yesterday.
So now I worry about the other gold one, and especially the sweet little black one, because he is the smallest of the two litters.
Such a sweetie. My heart is breaking.
The gold and white one is back but not my sweet little black one
Trying to look big and panther-like
I hope it serves him well out in the wild.
It is my hope and my prayer that the two kittens stay together, and return soon.
