She looks just like our old cat, Dotty, who died about 5 years ago at the grand old age of 17. Loved that cat.

Thanks for that Jan. What a lovely video! - Itsme and Motley are a ‘matching pair!’

Itsme has a family. There were 5, but the owner only allowed her 2. Sorry the pictures are a bit blurry.

As we rounded the corner a little before 6 o'clock yesterday after a day out, who should be coming towards the road across the field, our little Itsme.

I usually go down at around six every night so I would say she was coming to find me. I stopped the van, she had no idea it was me and stopped in the field, I went to the door and called her name and the tail went up and she ran towards me, I picked her up and for the first time she allowed me to turn her upside down and hold her like a baby the way I would hold Manny. When I put her down she went to the place under the tree where I used to feed her before she had the kittens. 

I didn't have any cat food with me so emptied Motleys food dish he had in the van and gave her fresh water in a container I have left under the tree for her. As we were about to drive off Metoo the black friendly one arrived to share the food.[tango_face_smile_big] Seeing Itsme coming to look for me made my heart go all funny.[love9]

To give you an idea of where things are:-
1. Where she normally lives
2. somewhere in here she has hidden the kittens
3. The small field she was coming from
4. where I stopped and where the oak tree is where she gets fed by me.
5. Our place

Kittens found
Still on Horsts property, on the top shelf in his potting shed.
He had just found them when we arrived tonight.
They are now back in the original shed in a big cardboard box with a blanket.
I put Itsme in the box with food, Horst then brought the kittens and I put them in with her. They were suckling when we left, Itsme quite relaxed on her side.

The second friendly black cat is becoming very tame, we saw her at a distance as we were going down and called 'Metoo' wow, the tail went up and she ran towards us, said hello to Motley first, really rubbing her face on his. She is beginning to eat out of our hands, can pick her up about a foot high off the ground, won't be long before I can hold her the way I do Itsme.

The black and white one on the photo from the other day is also getting interested in hands. 😺 😺 😺 soon be 3 tame ones.

So, you would say then, in light of your previous Indians comments, they are all getting to be quite “brave”

I don't think I told you about the cockerel attacking me last week, I hit him with the carrier bag that had the empty food box in, it took a few minutes for him to back off, quite scary with those great talons heading my way. 
He tried again today and I happened to have a little bucket with water in that I was about to refresh so threw that in his face while calling him a few choice names. He soon backed away and didn't return.
The kittens are growing fast, they are in a big cardboard box on the ground now, the day before yesterday they were trying to get out so it won't be long before they succeed.
The black one is becoming very touchable, I can lift her a few inches from the ground, gradually I will lift her higher, just as I did Itsme who now cuddles me and purrs, I can even turn her upside down in my arms and cuddle her like a baby.

Woohoo, nice one, Milly. I'd give you a clapping emoji, but most of them are little blue squares this morning.

(I bet it's Kev's fault, he's been buggering about wiv summat).

What's the betting Sandra will do a flounce and threaten to leave, and then some of her favourites like the penguin will talk her into staying.

Same-o, same-o.

If you mean the video Kev I will have to email or pm that because it automatically puts the video on.

So which is it?

Today the kittens are able to climb out of the box and Horst found one at the end of the garden this morning.
A hole has been cut in the side of the box to enable them to get back in (or out) but they prefer to climb out at the moment, funny little things. The door to their `room´ is now shut to confine them in case they wander too far. 
It really is amazing how Itsme allows Motley near the kittens, she makes no attempt to be spiteful and even rubs her face against his.

There was no sign of Metoo in the yard so on the way home I called her a few times and bounding out of the long grass like a spring bock came Metoo. She just loves to be stroked, but not picked up yet.

The cockerel was there, but kept his distance [tango_face_grin]

Kittens progress

How quickly they grow. We would love to have one, but it would just be unfair at our age and also without a cat I have nothing to worry about at home when we are away.
Motley of course would love to have all 3, Mum and the 2 kittens.
