A few weeks ago we came outside in our backyard to play and we found a mom cat with 3 little kittens living under our house! The mom cat must have sensed my own pregnancy hormones because of course I decided right there and then that we had to start feeding them and we could under no circumstances separate this cute little family! (Mike was really excited to hear this) So for now we have 4 cats living in our yard, which Ella has named: Snowball, crystal, diamond, and lilly.
Its amazing how good Ella is with these little cats, they just love her and will come right up to her and let her pet them- the mom cat still hisses at me! Anyway Ella will spend hours sitting on the steps just watching and quietly talking to them without even trying to touch them, I think that is why they trust her so much.
