Little cat feet, creeping softly, over to the kudzu thicket: gotta check on the rest of the clan. Only Felix and Oscar, who were both kittens when we started feeding their wild mothers, are safe enough to stay on the porch and sleep in the kitty houses I got for them. Mamacat and Mamakitty still sleep out in the woods somewhere.
