Cuteness Update

Well the little fuzz balls are five days old now and neither Jim nor I have been able to get near the kittens. Mama Midnight has turned into a fierce guardian and she hisses and spits and makes advancing motions when we try to even look at them!

Brave Victoria!

This 10 year old cat whisperer was able to not only pet Midnight, but she was allowed to touch her tiny babies too! Her dad, Robert and I watched in wonder. Midnight didn’t hiss or make any aggressive moves toward her at all. Robert tried to pet her and she did hiss at him. I went back downstairs and let Victoria and her dad spend some more time with the kitties. As soon as I got downstairs he sent me THIS!

Two hours after Robert and Victoria left I went upstairs to give Midnight her evening soft cat food. She tried to take my eyeballs out of their sockets. Grrrrrrrrr…
