Long awaited kittens!
For quite a while we weren’t sure if our beloved cat Basil was expecting, but a few weeks ago we were finally certain as we laid on the kitchen floor and watched tiny movement in her huge belly. It was precious. She is one exceptionally sweet cat and being a mama has only made that more so.
At one point last week there were butterflies mating on the kitchen counter, Basil and her new kittens, two friendly inch wide tiny crabs snacking on leftover broiled Mahi in a bucket on the front porch, our dog Maggie, a brown and green tree frog I caught for Caleb, ten happy chickens in their pen in the backyard….4 frolicking children and one little bean of a baby growing in my belly. I turned to Christopher at dinner and said, “Wow, there’s a whole lotta life going on here!”…he just laughed.
