One day, while doing an early morning laundry task, I caught something out of the corner of my eye in the window well. To my surprise there were these big, blue eyes, mewing at me. I yelled "Quick - there is a kitten that must have fallen in the window well. We will need a box or something to put it in." I go out right away and look down in the well to see four sets of big blues looking at me. The story begins.
Momma was in the distance pacing back and forth. We really didn't want to scare her away from them or think we were a threat. We left them alone and when we returned to it later after our day, they were still there and momma had provided them with a mouse or mole of some kind. She was still looking pretty mad at anyone being near the well. I left her alone and could see through the window that all kitties were ok.
Momma, a Siamese, started to guide me to her kitties. She became friendly towards me. Putting some water/food nearby for her, I watched as she tended to them. She welcomed me each time. I was able to get close to them and she would rub up against my legs giving approval. We ended up with them in our garage in a makeshift corral from the local shelter, making a cover on top for her to jump in and out. This kept them contained and her free to move in and out for feedings.
Enjoyed many hours of watching them romp around in the grass. They now all have wonderful homes. Momma stayed with us. We bonded so much during this time. She is where she belongs. We couldn't live without her.
