Easter gift

I'm back! Our changeover from one internet provider to another was not painless...two weeks with no internet connection at all...but we are back on-line!

And I have a surprise for you...Blackie had kittens! Five kittens! She gave birth in the field just past our garden wall on Easter Sunday. We brought the whole family into the yard and have created a private room for them inside our backyard bar.
I had my doubts about who the father was going to turn out to be. Tigro had broken his leg shortly before Blackie went into heat... And there was an orange intruder hanging out rather too assiduously during that period...
But the birth of 4 black and one tiger-striped kittens has cleared up all questions of paternity!

What a cute family!

Glad you are back. Love the cats.

very sweet indeed. Will you keep all the kittens?

Saretta said...

Thanks, Walker!

Frenchie, we will keep all the kittens that no one wants to adopt. They are outdoor cats and require little maintenance!

I love so much cats and this trilogy I love most the last photo that gives the idea of family :-)

We have two tabbies (siblings) and they're the best. They were the unwanted ones in a litter produced by a stray taken in by a co-worker of mine.

So, are you going to get Blackie spayed?
