Seven years ago we caught this girl
and her kittens
kept them crated for several weeks in our entryway
Yep - that is Allie and her kittens. Amazing that is has been that long. We leave our garage door up and she still comes and goes. Mom doesn't see her as often in the summer when the weather is nice, but food, water and shelter are always available to her. Since the vet thought she was about 2 when she was spayed, that would make her about 9 years old.
While mom has never gotten to pet her, we hope she knows she is loved.
