OK, here is s'more. Over the last few months Monica and I have brought 6 born-wild kittens into our home, 5 from one litter and a singleton. All are turning into wonderful house cats. There may be more, as the same mom how has 6 more just 3 1/2 weeks old and they are just starting to move about on their own. I sat with them the first time last night and brought each in turn out of their kennel (put into the back yard for the mom's). Some could not get "away" fast enough (in a slow sort of kitten way) some were ambivilent but 2 boys who were having a slo-motion battle for "top cat" literally writhed with pleasure as I tickled their tummies, rubbed the base of their ears and gave them a back rub. Mom, by the way is going to get "altered" just as soon as she weans the kits.
Man-oh-man, now I'm sitting in a puddle of soft-sidedness!! :biggrin:
