I got kinda bored sittin' around the house last Thursday, while Peg was busy, so I decided to go sit at the boat landing and 'drown a few worms'. I got home around 4 o'clock, walked into the backyard and immediately drew a kitty crowd.
Mama yard cat came tumbling out with her 4 tiny kittens as soon as I started moving things around in the yard.
What a nice greeting; they all came wobbling out of their hidey places from around and under the house we had put for them, (installed with two heating pads and topped with a warm blanket because of the freezing temps we've had lately.) I soon came to realize it wasn't me they were coming out for.
Even the small, timid 4th kitten cautiously peeked out with his startlingly blue eyes. What brought them out of hiding wasn't me but the other "Cat" I brought into the yard.
Catfish that is. The quickest way to get kitties out of hiding is to plop fresh fish liver in their bowl. As soon as I had
"Mr. Whisker-fish" skinned, they all pounced on their bowl,They seemed quite happy with this other cat in the yard.
