Arrival Story:
We've seen 'mama' outside since the summer of 2003, and we know she's had at least 4 litters in that time. We have cats from two of those litters. This past fall and winter, we'd gotten her used to regular feeds from us, in the hopes of gaining her trust enough to catch her and spay her. Well, she got pregnant before that happened, and littered about two weeks ago. This past Saturday, we were able to follow her, and figure out where her nest was. It was in debris in a stream! One rain and she and babies would get a soaking! We called someone we know who is good at trapping, and he was able to catch her (the kittens were easy). So they are now in a large cage in our basement, with blankets, warmth, litter, and plenty of clean food and water for mom. She is still supremely pissed, but she is eating and nursing. The kittens are around 2 and a half weeks old, active and growing.

Bio:
She is mom to our Minerva and Siren, and possibly a foster mom to Hades (we found him with her litter, but he was smaller and didn't look like he was one of hers).
