There are several cats in this neighborhood and this is one way of identifying which cat it is. My father-in-law died 2 years ago so the cat belongs to my mother-in-law with several others of the family taking care of this cat. She is an outside cat and I know that she had kittens somewhere with just glimpses of them over the past several weeks due to the mom cat moving them cause the dogs we have keep messing with them.
The other night mom cat was on the porch calling her kittens and we told her to bring them up front. Saturday morning I went outside and there are 3 gray stripped kittens laying on the porch. Antenna the mom cat laying right with them with the proudest look on her face of LOOK at my babies.
These kittens look to be about 5 weeks old and able to walk, run, and spit and snarl but not enough to do major hand damage if picked up. If I don't start handling them soon they will turn feral and I will not be able to handle this kittens at all. Antenna was raised by a dog so she gets along with my dog but the neighbors dog trys her best to kill the kittens
so we have to watch and make sure she does not mess with the kittens when she is out.
I hope this explains the situtation around here with the cats. I have had cats for several years up until recently when the last one I had died. So I have been wanting another cat but I am wanting a white one or a siamese kitten to raise but my husband has said NO on more animals around here. That and it is to painful to have more animals to attach too just to have something happen to them and they die. There has been to much of that for us recently anyway.
. May this make it clear as I can for all that do not understand.
