Three of the five kittens I feed behind the staff ablutions. They were quite nervous in the beginning but are getting used to me hanging around taking photos!
Last night mama cat was with them hissing and spitting at me (ungrately lady!). One of the kittens was gnawing on a decapitated bird the mother cat had brought for her babies.
I know it's a no-win situation; I only wish I could catch the mother cat and have her spayed. But it's impossible to get near her. She eats the food I put down for her near the bottom of our steps and her older kitten (now almost full grown) eats from another dish I place nearby.
