Winter, Spring & Summer

Introducing the newest babies: 
Summer, Spring & Winter.
(they are in order of names above)

Sweet as can be.
Almost ready for adventures.

Did I say sweet?

Yes, Cheryl, Hope does indeed have beautiful babies.
As mentioned in past posts --
Hope is our only "unfixed" momma cat.
The mortality rate of barn cats is short --
so adding to the group is O.K.
(usually about 7 at a given time -- which my real working farm neighbors
say is about the number to have for mice control).

Anyway --- in the land of "Hush-a-bye" --
we do fret over the naming of the kits. 
This year we had a suitcase full -
everything from "Bumblebee" to "Peanut".

But when the three looked up at me for the first time --
I knew at least we had three seasons represented.
Perhaps an orange "Autumn" will be in the fall litter.

My first words to them,
"welcome babies, some day we might just fall in love".

The babies are now officially out of the nesting box. You can here them run across the hayloft floor from the barn below -- sounds like a....herd of cats. So sweet, so sweet. Now we work to introduce them gently to the older kittens --letting them know that there is food & shelter & love for all.
