Look what I found on the first day of Chinese New Year. A mother cat with 5 kittens, new born. At a small corner on the porch. Their eyes were still closed. Look at that, so cute. The mother cat stayed there and feed its young the whole day, that day. So pitiful. Wanted to feed it, but whenever we get near, it will hissed, like telling us to back off. My hubby, my 2 sons and I would take turn to go peep every now and then. We notice that, on the second night, the mother cat disappeared until the next day in the late afternoon.
We thought it would not come back anymore. Wanted to feed those kitten on our own. I still have the small bottle, for feeding small animals. Bought it when my rabbits start to reproduce. My hubby suggested that if the mother cat still doesn't come back by the third day, maybe we should send all the kittens to the nearest SPCA.
Luckily it came back just in time. From that day onwards, the mother cat would leave at night to look for food and come back the next morning. Well, they only stayed for nine days. On the eight day I saw some of the kitten open their eyes and start to move slightly further from where they were. Every time we move the car, one of us would have to check if they are all there on that spot. Wouldn't want to turn any of it into pancakes.
Maybe the mother cat is not comfortable with four of us keeping an eye on them. No privacy at all. The whole family pack their belongings and left our porch on the eighth night and left behind cute memories. They never came back since. Occasionally I could see the mother cat roaming around the back of my house. Hmmm, wonder where are those kittens now.
Look at them!So peaceful. So adorable. Enjoy the video clips and thanks for reading. Hope to share more such stuffs with you in the future.
