I was noticing that there are a few sets of twins in these two litters of cats.
Either in pattern or in color!
Tiger and Marmalade (boys).
Whiskers (girl) and Mustache (boy).
Socks and Charcoal (boys)
Notice how talented Socks is? He can play with a fish in his mouth
and a mouse with his tail all at the same time! ha.
that leaves Grey!
She's a combination of all of them, I guess!
We've had some major drama with the tomcat who I believe is the dad of all these kittens.
He has turned violent and attacks the them! Mustache and Marmalade have almost lost their tails! I'm not exaggerating! Yes, actual bloodshed, wounds and terror!! It's been awful! He's not just being a pest. He's hurting them! He crawls through our fence and they all run for cover! Mustache ran for his life and was gone 8 days. He returned last night skinny and starving. We thought he was dead! He had just eaten and that tomcat came into the yard and made a beeline straight for Mustache. So Mustache ran off again and hasn't return yet. After about a dozen attacks up on our porch he's left me no choice and I've borrowed a pellet gun and have it loaded and waiting. I've never hurt an animal in my life and you know I love them but he's left me no choice. He's out to kill and I can't let that happen. I practiced last night in the back yard and could hit a soda can in the dark, so I think I'm ready. lol.
And wouldn't you know he wasn't around all day? I swear they are all mind-readers.
He would be wise never to return.
The mother cat of the first litter is due again any day now.
She has begun to eat more often on my porch and I even got her
to come into the kitchen! She still wouldn't let me touch her but
I'm hopeful to be able to catch her eventually and have her spayed.
I wonder how many sets of twins will be in this next group!
Maybe some pretty tortoise-shell like she is!
Isn't she huge? I was big like that carrying my triplets.
I told her I knew just how she felt. :)
