There's not much that comes sweeter than a baby...
It's been a very long time since we've had any kitties on our farm. To our delight, a month or so ago, we noticed that Slinky, the Ultimate Kitty , appeared to be expecting! One morning, she appeared in the cow stable, clearly no longer pregnant. However, there was no sign of her babies, and she didn't appear to be nursing. So...we sadly assumed that her babies had come to an unfortunate end...Until a few weeks ago, when one morning she came down around the barn carrying a clone of herself in her mouth!
Apparently it was time to introduce her babies to us!
These three have to be the cutest, healthiest kitties we've ever had! Would you dare to argue?!
And Slinky has proven herself not only to be the "Ultimate Kitty", but now she's the "Ultimate Mommy"! I don't think I've ever seen a mother cat that is so protective and so smart...the dogs would not even dare to think of coming near! This week she's trying to teach them to hunt.
We've been getting a lot of enjoyment out of these babies... I guess we'll call them the "Ultimate Kittlets"!
