This little mama showed up with her kittens about a week ago. We think she had them under a low rooflet that shelters a lot of my clay. The area behind the buckets is very dry with lots of cozy leaves.
She began bringing them out about four days ago.
We have no idea what she has been eating but she was pretty skinny so of course we put food out for her. We still can't get close to her, but now we have figured out a way to put out food without scaring her away.
She will look at us curiously when we look out the second floor windows. She looks like she wants to come but is just too skittery.
So yesterday I told her she looks like a little peach, then began calling her Lucky Peach. Now mama has a name. We hope to keep her and take the kittens, when they are weaned, to a no-kill shelter.
I think cats have secret signs they post that let others know that this a good place for kitties.
As always thanks for stopping by............*s*
