The "Babies" are One Year Old!!

I cannot believe it's been an entire year since a stray Calico cat had her four kittens on my front porch! Animals are much smarter than many people realize....this Calico knew whose porch she needed to use as a "maternity ward". Anyone who knows me at all knows I am the "ultimate CAT person" - LOL! Even though I already had several cats, I certainly couldn't turn away this sweet Calico (now named Patches).

The original plan was to keep one kitten and find excellent homes for the other three....but after tearfully placing one white kitten (Simon) with a loving owner, I just never found homes for Levi, Delilah, and Moses. SO.....Patches and the three remaining kittens happily live in my home now - - along with two older cats. Yes, they're a LOT of work (especially the litter box cleanings) but they are so worth it. I cannot imagine a home with no kitties now! Happy Birthday Babies!!

I can't get over how much your Patches looks like our Frances! And white kittens...just like we had. Don't pets add so much to our lives? I can't imagine not having our furry, four-legged friends underfoot. :o)
