A CLOWDER OF CATS
A few weeks back, Artie found a dead kitten in the street. We had no idea where the kitten came from. Neither of us saw any pregnant cats except Silver Grey.
When Artie took Annie for her before-supper walk Saturday, he saw kittens and a mother cat under a car parked in our neighbor's driveway diagonally across the street from our house. Our neighbor happened to be outside and he told Artie the cat and her babies are living in his backyard. Of course, there are more kittens. From the size of the dead kitten I estimate the litter mates to be about 3 months old.
I need to get in touch with someone so we can possibly do a TNR now. I'd hate to wait longer because the mother can get pregnant again. So now we have a clowder of cats. And the group gets bigger...
