Silly had her kittens!!!!

Thursday she was big pregnant, then she disappeared all day yesterday, then this morning she was thin. I knew!  

Thursday pic. Can't really see the belly, but it's there!

Today pic. 

I found the kittens under my old car. Lucky we don't drive it!  

They're way under there. I count 4, but there could be a fifth. There's a black one, an orange one, and two calico. 

My dad freaked me out today by telling me that raccoons are going to eat them. So I tried to get Silly to follow me into the corner of the garage/barn that I had nested for her.  When I was on my way back there, something moved. I was wearing shorts and unarmed aside from a pocket knife, so I figured We'd look into it later. For the time being, we put a couple of unopened live traps and a dog fence around 3/4 of the car that they're under. Silly can still get out fine, but hopefully it will be safer. 

I can't wait until I can see more of them!  Daughter is so excited!

Silly's pregnant

I brought her to the vet for a rabies vaccine... Turns out she's pregnant. 

The vet said she's about 2 months along. That's how long she's been here!  

Guess our plan to have one barn cat isn't going to work out so great. We're probably going to get her spayed pretty quick after she has the kittens. I'm a little excited. Daughter will have fun with the kittens 😊
