Sad Morning For Kittens

This morning I went to go check on the kittens and the mom wasn't there. I noticed that the food bowl was empty which means that she came back to eat the food and that the kittens got to nurse on her. But then I also noticed that there was only one kitten! I didn't hear any mewing in the bushes which means it might have been sleeping. So I looked through the bushes a little bit but I find the kitten. Then after that the other kitten woke up and started crawling around looking for its mom. I didn't want that kitten to also crawl into the bushes so I quickly went inside, washed my hands, came back outside, and picked up the kitten. It was so cute. I put it in the little shelter that I made for them but she/he kept crawling out. So instead of just putting it in the little shelter I just put the kitten back down. The kitten kept crawling for a little bit longer but then it just went back to sleep.

Shelter For The Kittens

Since there's going to be a hurricane I made a shelter for them which is a plastic garbage can with a blanket inside of it so the mama cat and the kittens can stay in. I also put a rock in it to hold it down from getting blown away. And those of you who were dying to see a picture of the kittens here they are:

Back To The Kittens

Progress with the kittens has been going really well, they're healthy but still really tiny. The mom of the kittens has been eating all of the food that we've been giving her so that's good. But when I went back to go check on them, one of the kittens was gone! I had no idea where it was but then I herd a little mew. I looked at the kitten that was still there but it wasn't the one mewing. Then I noticed that the mewing was coming from the in the bushes. I started searching for it but it seemed like the mew kept getting further and further away. So, I decided to go put some shoes on and wash my hands before I touched it. Then I really started looking for it because I wasn't just going to leave it there. So I walked a little bit further and there she/he was! So I went over to go pick it up and it was the cutest thing ever. So I put it back and it went right to sleep. Oh kittens.

Hurricane Irene

What is Hurricane Irene you ask? It's a hurricane that's going to hit several states such as Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and many more. In New Jersey the whole state is evacuating and that's where I was going to go to for vacation. In New York City they might be closing the trains from Sunday to Monday maybe even Saturday. I don't really know what's going to happen in Connecticut but I don't think it's going to be good. OH NO!!!!!!!!! The mama cat and her baby kittens are going to be in the hurricane!!!!!!!! Lets hope that they'll be okay. Stay safe everyone :-)

Wake Up Little Kittens

In the morning I just had to go check to see if the mama cat was there and she was! I was so happy and relieved that the mom was back and that the kittens were nursing on her. I noticed that food bowl was empty so hopefully she's the one that ate all of it. I watched them for a little while just to catch up on what was happening. I decided to go upstairs just to chill out because it was early and I was still exhausted. After that, the mom was gone looking  for more food and while she was, I snuck another bowl of cat food where her and her kittens are. Later in the day it started raining and the kittens were getting wet. I couldn't leave them there so I washed my hands really well and went to go put them under a little part of our roof. A little bit before I went to go meet my friend at the library, the mom came back to keep them from getting wet and everything was much better.

Newborn Kittens

Last night when we were getting ready for bed and my brother saw a black cat outside one of our guest bedroom windows. When he went to go see her she got scared of him and ran away. After that, we noticed two little black and white kittens crawling around helplessly mewing right outside the bedroom window. Me my mom and my brother had no idea what to do because the mom ran away. We put out a bowl of cat food out for the mama cat to eat. We kept checking on the kittens to see if the mom would come back but she didn't. We had to go to bed by now and we took one last look to see if she was there but she wasn't. We all had our fingers crossed that she would be back in the morning.
