Hortence and her kittens



Mom and Dad's friends have been caring for a friendly outdoor cat. She showed up recently pregnant, and gave birth to three tiny kittens the other day. We've had some pretty severe storms the past few nights so Mom and Dad made a cat house for her out of a heavy duty storage container with a cat bed in it. They understand that you can't force her to use it, but hopefully she'll find it and use it. Right now she's tucked behind some bushes and against the house where the corner of the roof provides some protection. We'll keep you posted on these kittens. Someone had already offered to help have the momma cat fixed after the babies are weened.

Paws crossed that this family uses the shelter during the storms.

Poor things. We hope they use the shelter. That was so nice of your mom and dad to do that for them.

Thank you for sharing. Momma and babies look they are doing great. Hopefully, she will see the shelter and use that for protection. Please keep us updated with any new details. Have a great day.

I hope they use the shelter and can be trapped for fixing.
