Mama Leopard's kitten presentation day!
I'd been considering bringing my kittens to the food place for a few days, but there was a loud machine in their yard. The machine cut the grass and stirred up the mice, so yesterday (when it was all quiet) I decided to bring my kittens. I looked around to make sure it was safe, then hopped up on the deck. My kittens followed, then scurried around on the new surface, testing it out and smelling all the smells. As I went over to eat from the food pile the lady and man leave for us, my kittens saw the inside cats for the first time. Were they ever surprised, on both sides of the funny window-door!
I saw one of the inside cats run off, then come back with the human lady. She was very happy to see my little family and told me what a good mama I am! Then she got a funny-looking thing and set it up on the floor where the inside kitties have their food bowls. I knew she wouldn't come outside without letting me know first, so I kept eating and one of my little ones joined me, discovering what kibble was for the first time. The lady put something on the food container inside, then lay down on the floor! She said she was going to take a video of us.
Later on last night, Tuxie and I came back with my kittens. Tuxie's a good dad to my kittens, washing them and playing with them a bit, even though he looks at them like they just landed out of the blue sometimes.
My kittens are now about 8 1/2 weeks old. I have one who looks like me, one with a classic marbled tabby pattern, and one who is white with tabby patches and reminds me of the inside kitty named Starla. The little ones are very interested in the inside kitties, and go up to the window-door to look in and play by tapping their little paws on the glass. Heimdall plays back, and tries to bat at their little tails as they run past the window!
