We arrived safely at the house on Friday early evening and Lisa our little cat appeared within half an hour, Theo the shy one not much later. Lisa didn't visit so often afterwards, we assumed because our neighbours had been feeding her and she was still getting food and attention. This evening she came round and I put out food and milk but again she wasn't that interested. I heard her in the garden being quite vocal and then later I spotted her in our lower garden complete with ... wait for it .... a white kitten. Obviously when the first kitten was taken she has moved the other and kept it very safe until she felt confident enough to being it to us. She proceeded to lead the little tot across the garden and carried it, a few steps at a time, up the 13 steps onto our terrace. She was so pleased and happy, purring and fussing the baby. I was in the middle of preparing dinner, which I abandoned as I tried to find a safe place for them both, they are now locked in our cellar with food, water and bedding. Lisa didn't seem that pleased to be fastened in but needs must, it was getting dark we couldn't let them stay on the terrace in case junior walked off the edge and anywhere else in the garden left them vulnerable to predators now they have broken cover.
I really hope we can keep the kitten safe, I have already suggested Mr FF start building an enclosure, he was more concerned that his dinner would be burnt, it wasn't because he started without me but at least I can sleep tonight knowing mother and baby are safe.
