Typical Moo Cat reaction when two new feral cat showed up at my campsite this morning. Two little kittens. One gray and one black. Probably about 3 or 4 months old. I have no idea where they came from. Both of the female cats in my neck of the woods are fixed.
The kittens are adorable, of course. But it’s a little daunting. Two more mouths to feed. And two more potential breeders.
The kittens were too timid to get within 30 feet of my campsite. So I rolled a big chunk of baloney down the hill to where they were sitting. The gray kitten expertly nabbed the baloney in it’s paw, like a soccer goalie catching a ball. And spent the next 5 minutes happily munching away.
