A Mother One Last Time
Having taken so many photos of Ug giving birth in the past, I decided to leave her her dignity this last time. I took this photo after the horrible task of removing the other kittens. Ug's had time to clean her son but hasn't as yet eaten the afterbirth. With my remaining time in the prison running out, I was taking a risk leaving her with any young. I knew the kitten wouldn't be big enough to fend for itself when I left. It meant that I'd have to find a new home for him as well as for Ugli.
