Mama cat is pretty settled now in our backyard. She was very affectionate this morning when I took her brekky out, so much so that she lay down in the garden next to me and fed her kittens allowing me and K. to pat her and the kittens for quite a while. When K. went inside, Mama cat got up and went and lay under the shrub leaving the kittens exploring near me.
When I went out again a bit later, she lay under the shrub and the kittens came exploring again. One little black kitten with white toes, even climbed up on the garden wall next to my foot – very adventurous.
