Wild kitties

We were outside with our next door neighbor when we saw a kitten run alongside her house. We walked over and looked, and burrowed underneath one of the bushes in her yard was the home of three beautiful kittens and their mom. They had apparently been living under this bush their entire lives, and the ground was dug down so that they were sheltered. They were wild, and the mother was livid that we were trying to catch them. After two hours, the five of us (adults) caught the three kittens, but could not get the mother. The following day, we lured her onto our lanai where the kittens were staying, and we managed to catch her. We've had them all week, and it has taken all of this time for the mother to stop trying to attack us. You can tell that the kittens have never seen or been around people before, because even now only Sean can get near them. They still try to attack. A local safe shelter is adopting them all together, so we feel good about trying so hard to get the mom to keep with her babies. They are so cute, and I wish that we could keep them all, but Greyson isn't very happy about them being here!

Oh my gosh, they are so cute! I wish *I* could have them!

p.s. I would have paid to see you people chasing cats for five hours! ;)
