New kittehs, that's what! Mom's neighbor kids were trying to retrieve a ball from under their front porch when they encountered a pair of wee black fluffballs. Naturally, they came over and asked if I could come out and play with them...
They were actually having more fun than this pic would have you believe.
Aside from the store-bought wand I had fetched from inside the house, one of the babies seemed to think a little girl's hand made a very good toy.
Killed it but good.
After a while, the little one got up the nerve to explore, before returning to the raffia toy.
Of course, where there are crowds of children, other things come up... like
the kids' own cat, Smoky.
The little one doesn't surrender the toy or the attentions of the humans.
I like this wee fluffball's gumption.
For more critters of courage, and such, be sure to visit Modulator's Friday Ark #197, and, on Sunday evening, drop by the CotC, this weekend to be hosted by Victor Tabbycat.
