Guess What Was Found In The Window Well

This past Monday when my sister returned from vacation she was greeted by a surprise in her window well.

Four wee kittens, and their mama who had apparently given birth there.

The kittens appear to be no more than a week old. Their eyes are newly opened, and despite the impression you may get from the photos are about the size of a large hamster at this point.

Mama appears to be very young herself, and was quite skinny, and filthy when found. There is no collar, and no microchip to try to identify her.

So far attempts to find an owner have proven futile. My sister has decided since she appears to be a stray she will spay, and keep mama. As you can see mommy cat is gorgeous, and has come around to my sis nicely even allowing her to groom her to which she purrs ... :D

My sis initially called our local animal control, and was told they were over crowded. With that statement the lady on the phone reminded her that they are a "kill" shelter. Our local humane society is not a "kill" shelter, and will only perform euthanasias under extreme circumstances, however they too are very over crowded at this time, and the odds of the kittens picking up an illness would be too high in our opinion to take them there.

So currently my sister has seven cats, this lovely family, and two that she adopted from a shelter a few years back.

If you know some good peeps in the Greater Toronto Area who in about 6-7 weeks may wish an adorable wee furbaby please let me know. My sis is determined that each is cuddled, and loved and well taken care of until they are ready to go to their forever home.
