More kittens. The other female cat just had a litter today. She was looking mighty round up until yesterday, then today we saw her curled up in a hole in the ground, purring like an engine, wrapped around three kittens (I counted when she had to go to the bathroom).
Not exactly the smartest place for a nest, especially since it's not under cover. If it rains, there are going to be some really wet kitties! Or drowned ones. :(
Well, like her sister, she's a first-time mom, she'll learn better from experience.
My pups are extremely interested, but haven't ventured close enough to feel mama's wrath. She let Silver and me actually pet her babies...so soft!
I yet again tried to convince my roommate to at least have the females spayed, so they don't keep having litter after litter, but he's firmly convinced that spaying/neutering pets will "alter their nature", so he's having none of it. The cats are here to control vermin, that is their sole function. And he also says that kittens are "easy to take care of". *sigh*
Oh, well. For a few weeks I'll enjoy playing with the babies. The older kittens are extremely skittish and scatter like fat, furry cockroaches when I come near them. No fun! Cute, though.
