Beauty had her kittens in my parents backyard -- she was skinny and looked worn out - but her babies were all well cared for. We trapped her and she stayed and nursed her babies until they were weaned -- after which time all were spayed. She was too wild to find a home as an indoor cat, so my mom offered to feed her - so back to Dad's Garden she went. She's since found a new friend (Beast) ... we've adopted out two of her babies (Fireball and Flashdancer) and are still looking for homes for Fluffernutter and Dutchess.
All are happy and healthy -- and Beauty lives up to her name!
