little family--mama's out hunting, left her babies in a safe place (mew!)
A couple of weeks ago I posted of seeing one of our feral's kittens for the first time. I finally have some pics -- but they're not too good.

There are three kittens, and I've named them, rather unoriginally, Tortie, Ginger, and Black.

In this pic, Tortie is in front (eyes left), Black is in back (eyes middle), and Ginger is between them (eyes right)

same photo, different tweak

Here are Black & Ginger by themselves


And here's our 'fradiest baby, Tortie, all by herself


I think it was Archae who asked me to post photos. Here they are! (I'd've posted them even if no one had asked. You all know me . . . .) Now I'm off to bed. Ask me anything -- if you can wait til tomorrow for the answers!

'night, all

(If you think you can doctor these lousy photos -- taken through a screen and/or double-glazed windows with terrible lighting -- please PM me.)

1. I love the not-quite 'red eye' effect in the kittens' eyes!
Not bad shots at all!

3. and soon
you must capture them all and take them to be neutered, or next year you'll have dozens of half-starved waifs. Please?

4. Hi, Joy Anne, and welcome to DU!
NO WORRIES at all: we are a TNR household. We feed three adult and three feral kittens (and whatever wild critters decide to take advantage of us -- we don't mind).

:hi:

13. YEP!
And in my case, that the house is probably soaked to the foundation by now with "PUSHOVERS LIVE HERE!" pheromones.

8. They DO look cuddly! And it's a damn good thing they're feral
and I'll never be able to find out just how cuddly they are. Because six indoor cats is enough. :bounce:

10. As the owner of six indoor cats....I agree.
I feel bad for feral cats though.

15. Dude! How did you do that?
Photoshop? Thanks!

I wanted so badly to go outside and shoot 'em -- or even pull the screen out of the window. But either action would've scared them away. Better to get lousy pics than no pics at all. :)
