I have long been meaning to write about the Oak Street kittens. Today I got a much-appreciated reminder via this lovely photograph by algul siento.
For those of you who are wondering, the slightly larger lass with the tipped ear is NOT the mother of these kittens. But that isn’t to suggest take her responsibilities seriously. Algul writes:
The one bigger one has been TNR’d you can tell by the eartip, but she has been so great taking care of each litter that is born in that yard, as you can see from the photo. I don’t think she would have difficulty adjusting to indoor status, given that sheÂ is a giant lovebug.
The mother of this (and from what I have heard yet another) litter is feral and wants to no contact with human beings whatsoever. The same cannot be said about the kittens and their “stepmom”. While a bit cautious, these kittens are friendly and will gladly accept a head rub or two (I speak from personal experience when I write this). What they would like even more is a nice warm home. Maybe yours?
I have spoken to one of the folks whose front yard this little pride calls home. He told me these kittens are for adoption and that anyone interested in providing them a good home should speak to him. If any of you, dear readers, are interested in giving the gift that keeps on giving by taking one of these delightful critters home for the holidays shoot me an email at miss heather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. I will forward your inquiries to him.
NOTE: I have been told the tabby kitten just got a home!
