The kittens lived around the porch, but seemed to know how to avoid the cars and we stopped worrying about driving over them after a month. Around Xmas however, I drove in and later noticed there was one under my car tyre.
SE kept saying "Mummy made the kitten die, mummy made the kitten die". Until later that night... when she came upstairs and said "Mummy KILLED the kitten!" Gahh. Hubby continued with it the next day. Hmpppfff. Like I WANTED to kill a cute furry creature??
After that we got our maid to shoo the kittens away when we needed to drive out. Around New Year's day however, one kitten walked back under the car after being shoo-ed away... and hubby reversed over it. Arggh another one bites the dust. And this time, I had to give him back what he was calling me earlier... hahaha. He was traumatised at causing its death too.
So it was 3 kittens left.
Recently, our neighbours' 8yo daughter 'gave' 2 of the kittens to her friend nearby.
So... only ONE kitten left! We're ok to have the 2 kittens gone to a good home. Err... but how come we're left with my least favourite one?? Hahaha. JE called it 'Fiercey' as it kept hissing at people. She quite likes this one though.
A week or so later, the two kittens came back. It was quite good to see them again actually!
So now it's back to 3.
This is Fiercey
This is Blackie
This is Black Patch (Patch for short)
Now it's back to the dilemma of which one(s) to keep! Patch is the best-looking but isn't friendly. Blackie is the only male - friendly but likes to play rough. Fiercey is actually quite sweet now that it has gotten over its initial fear of humans.
We only want to keep two at the max. Right now three are wreaking havoc on my plants, leaving pee/poo smells and eating up lots of food.
