What the Boss Likes – New additions to the family

We have 6 new additions.  I had befriended a little kitty earlier this year.  She had a lame front paw so I fed her and gave her a place to sleep.  Then I saw that she was probably pregnant, but she was so tiny, I figured that she would either have one or two kittens or lose them altogether as is common for new feline mothers.

She had five.

She had them under a neighbor’s shed and then she brought them to our garden.  One disappeared and ended up back at the shed.  So after a couple of weeks, everyone is now caught, inside the house and being tamed.  The vet said the momma cat was only around a year old and she’s only a little over 6 pounds (about 3 kilos).  So we are getting her spayed because if she is such a good momma at this age, we’ll be up to our hips in kittens.

Momma cat is Hera.  The white and stripes (females I think) are Athena and Harley (Harlequin due to her face that you can’t see here), the three stripey/spotty boys are Apollo, Jason ( ala the Argonauts, for being quite the explorer) and Leo.  She’s in the midst of weaning them but they are about as big as her.

    P.S. Don’t. Name. The. Kittens! We did, and that was it — they had tenure, and we weren’t allowed to put them up for adoption. 😉
