My mother just told me that she found a new litter of kittens in the backyard garden shed. She had seen this cat wandering around for a few days, but had scared it off each time. Apparently the poor thing had been looking for a place to birth.
My mom, while not a fan of cats, was kind enough to clear out a corner of the shed, lay out a box with some old towels, and provide some warm milk for the new family.
The saddest thing about the mama cat is she has a collar: she belongs to someone, but this someone did not spay her. My mom called Animal Control, but I always fear the worst in shelters. If you want a pet, please go visit a shelter. In Los Angeles in 2006-2007, some 23,000 animals were put down. Please do your part and save the kittehs and dags!
