It’s a beautiful spring day. Flowers are blooming in our yard and new life abounds. We have been fostering a semi-feral pregnant cat in our playhouse for the last week. I named her Juno because she is a pregnant teen-ager. I just went out to check on her and clean the litter box and guess what? Three kittens! No kittens at breakfast, three kitchens at lunch! She even gave birth in the fancy cardboard birthing box with beach towels I made for her. I never see her when I go in to feed her because she hides but she stays right with them now. How brave of her. She is scared to death but stays with her babies. She has them all cleaned up and everything. I wish people had the same parenting instincts as cats. It is life affirming to witness this and I am so excited and relieved it all went well. Anyone want a kitten?
