Mourning dove nest

When we got back from the wedding and honeymoon, we found that mourning doves had built a nest in the hanging plant on our balcony. At the time, the mother was sitting on the eggs and we didn't have the heart to kick her out. Obviously this meant the end of our hanging plant as we could no longer water it. There are now 2 baby mourning doves and we're just waiting for them to be able to leave the nest so we can finally get rid of the ugly dead hanging plant and get a new one. They've gotten big pretty quickly, so hopefully it isn't too much longer. Our cat Cleo watches them with interest through the window from time to time but she's such a housecat that I doubt she even has any idea what to do with them.
