One summer two little tiny grey kittens appeared on my back deck. I think their mama had had them under there and felt they were big enough to be on their own. I estimated they were around 8 weeks old. I wanted to keep them but my husband was not in favour of allowing them inside. I called the Humane Society but they said they already had too many cats and would not help.
I fed them on the deck every day and they made themselves at home. One had little white feet so she was named “Mittens”. The other one we called “Angel”. They were very skiddish and wouldn’t let us touch them but they would scurry and play around in the yard entertaining us all summer with their cute kitten ways. We called it the “summer of the kittens”.
When the colder weather came we didn’t see them for a while. One day Angel was curled up in the sun on the back deck. Another time we saw one of them run right up to the top of our huge tree. After that we didn’t see them again.
