A feral cat gave birth on my porch a few days ago in a basket right next to the sliding glass door. We have a bird's eye view of all her activity and it is so amazing to watch her with those little guys. There are five of them total. I am worried about them because it is so cold out there, lots of rain, snow, wind, and just plain nastiness. I guess mama cat knows what she is doing though.
I tried to make the basket a bit more sheltered by hang up some cardboard along one side. It blocks the wind a bit and keeps the snow from swirling around into the basket. I waited until mama wandered away for a bit and then tried to do it as quickly as possible.
Now if we could just convince our neighbors to leave the kittens alone. They are the ones who pulled them out and took these pictures of them - I am afraid mama cat will move them or leave them if they don't back off!!!
