The Mother of our Cats

The Mother of our Cats

Mommy Cat, a now elderly cat who has lived with us for over 12 years now, is a semi wild cat who brought her kittens to us many years ago. There were six cats altogether. Three boys, a girl and their mother. She has never let us rub her, unless we get a sneaky rub in as she’s facing away but she immediately tries to bat our hands away. However, her offspring were and are the most affectionate cats. Unfortunately the three boys were killed on the main road beyond the ditch. Mommy Cat rarely leaves our garden now, and Hoppy mustn’t go far as there are feral cats around.
