Yes, she is right in there caring for the wee ones. I guess with the last litter (April/May of this year), Eeyore stole Piglets kittens and cared for them the first two weeks, until Piglet starting caring for them. So Piglet owed her...now the sisters are even!
Maybe it is the camera angle, but those two sisters (the mommys) have such exotic, long faces. Beautiful. But that also gives them more 'glareability'. I wouldn't have reached under that cat for that kitten either, with her glareing like that.
Piglet and Eeyore do have very long noses. And they are kind of hissy, so I try not to push my luck. They both took squeezy cheese off my fingers tonight. And Piglet jumped out of the cage to eat canned food in front of me.
Baby steps, baby steps. They are going back to the original owner after being spayed, so they don't really "need" to be tamed. But I will try to make some progress with them. At least they are letting me tame the babies!
But one little adventurous tabby was determined to get back out of the cage to explore some more. Chewing on the bars didn't work, so lets try clawing our way out! Check out those talons! And only 3 weeks old!
I was just taken over by a wave of nostalgia. About 20 years ago we had a mom and her 2 daughters give birth within days of each other. They formed a commune of their 15 kittens. One pic I remember is that all are asleep except one - and it's smack dab in the middle of the pile.
