The kittens are all safe with their mother and nursing at the moment.

I spoke too soon about our quiet peaceful day. No sooner had I hit the Publish Post button on the previous post than I heard the little cry of a week old kitten and as I looked up I saw Petey, our young tomcat, carrying a tiny baby kitten in his mouth. He gently set the baby kitten down and was trying to get a better grip to carry it off to a new location. Jimmy jumped up from his chair where he was watching Butler & Michigan State play basketball in the NCAA Basketball championships and took the baby kitten away from Petey and put it back where it belonged. Petey didn't like having the kitten taken from him and for the first time in his life he hissed at Jimmy. Thank goodness the mother kitty was outside taking a break, but she does let Petey babysit while she is away. I don't know if Petey had her permission to move her kittens, but I seriously doubt it. So while the kittens were all awake, thanks to Petey, I took the opportunity to change their bedding which made mother cat very happy.
