While the kittens may have been born on, or around, St. Patrick’s Day, they were born in the wild. This photo is of the kittens from a year ago, right after being rescued over in the Tampa area by The Runaways Animal Rescue ( https://www.runawaysanimalrescue.org/ ). The head of the organization sent me this photo today, along with several others that were taken when the kittens were rescued.
Zoë is second from the left and Danï is far right. Both are vocalizing. Nothing’s changed much. I’m sure they were calling for momma Joan who was still out there. They picked up Joan the next day. Once everyone was back together momma Joan was an excellent mother to all four, nursing them until they were old enough to be weaned and then adopted by my wife and I.
