Wow. Cats are so clever. I hadn't realised what I am up against.

A few months back a stray cat befriended us. At that stage she was happy to live out but on Easter Sunday she got into our utility room and had 4 kittens. They are all doing really well and we have homes for them.
For several reasons I like to keep the cats confined to one area of the house. The cat has access through a window to go in and out but can't get into the kitchen/living area unless we let her in (which we do when we are here and it suits).
A couple of times now when I have been here but can't have her in the main room she has waited patiently to come in and when I ignored her she went back in the window, got one of her kittens and brought it out to the door where I can see her.
She is so clever. She knows I won't let the kitten stay outside for long so if she takes one out I have to let them both in. She really lays on the guilt, sitting there looking smug while the poor little kitten cries to come in.
So cute but so devious grin

Bad cat slave not letting her rule your house!! It's all a devious plot to take overgrin

At this moment she is 'laying on the guilt' . Give it time and she will be laying on the quilt. . . On your bed every night. . You just watch. .
But a cat thread isn't complete without pics.
Especially when there are kittens involved.
Mn rules. .

Yep, yabvu not doing exactly what the cat wants.

And please, get her neutered asap. I know, but it always need saying....

And where are the kitten photos...?

You can not mention kittens without photos.

befriended? Really? no I think the term you are looking for is invaded, or possibly conquered or annexed.........

'adopted' sounds about right to me. smile

And yes, pictures please!

Pinkkahori Fri 26-May-17 15:37:32

Tricky to get good photos - they are a lot faster than I am.
I'll try to get all 4 together.

Have you seen that Buzz feed article where they video drunk women being given boxes to open, which they discover are full of puppies or kittens? Pure happiness, there.

Life is sooooo unfair. I want a bucket of kittens envy. They are so cute.

Mum is a pretty thing, she looks tiny, bless her!

My day has been made by the bucket of kittens 😍😍😍

YetAnotherSpartacus Sat 27-May-17 11:08:36

My goodness - Mum is barely more than a kitten herself! What a sweetie though! Those eyes!

mirren3 Sat 27-May-17 11:10:18

Kittens and buzzfeed with cute videos. Think my Saturday is sorted.

Pinkkahori Sat 27-May-17 11:43:59

Thanks everyone. I was never a cat person before this. Also I am unreasonably proud of the kittens despite the fact that their mum is amazing and has done all the work!
They are fully litter box trained and are weaning at the moment.
I have no experience of cats at all so have just let the mum get on with things and she is doing a great job.
The kittens are a handful! When I open their door in the morning they all tumble out and run about like mad things.
The house will be a much quieter place when they go sad
