a sad farewell to the kittens
We kept the kittens until they were 11 weeks old, so they had plenty of time to play in the woods and learn from their mothers. We found homes for 4 of the kittens, and took the other 7 in to be adopted. In exchange for bringing them the kittens, they spayed both of my mother cats, and the little one we're keeping. So we won't be having kittens in our life for many years. This was a fun experience we will all remember with fond memories of them, and the miracle of their birth, the mothers faithfulness in raising them, and the tenderness we witnessed, watching them with their babies.
