If you read last week's Feline Friday post, then you know about the litter of kittens that's recently taken residence in our yard. After they first appeared, my family and I saw them quite a bit over the next few days. The kittens gathered around our picnic table, rested on the playset, and even ate food/water my brother brought out for them (while he was standing nearby). And at the time, they surprisingly stuck around long enough for him to snag this adorable picture.
We recently had new neighbors move in nextdoor, and they happen to have a cat that mostly stays outside. Unsurprisingly, this particular kitty happened to get pregnant and had a litter of kittens just several weeks ago. As of late, it seems the cats have settled in our yard permanently, though. We've begun seeing the kittens wandering around on a daily basis, searching for food and excitement. The kittens are absolutely adorable and remind me of how our kitties were as tiny, floofy babies.
I've talked about this a bit before, but it's been a while since I wrote about my kitty bros, Kash and Karma, and how we came to adopt both of them.
I'm a bit late with this, since Remember Me Thursday was yesterday, September 24. But, I think the mission of this movement is one that's very important all year round. So, I'd like to take a moment to talk about exactly what that goal is and share my own adoption stories.
It's just a great feeling to see your children (furry or otherwise) grow up and develop, acquiring new skills along the way. And these days never last long, so we must treasure them while they do.
