Behold the Kittens

This is a series of pictures of our latest litter of kittens. Five kittens in all, about 4 weeks old, with 3 males and 2 females. Of note, all have little white paws, almost like socks. It reminds me of the nursery rhyme about the three little kittens who lost their mittens. This first picture is a special photographic process, which captures the excitement of the new kittens. It is a veeery expensive addition to my camera.

Below, note how the sideways angle of the photograph impels the viewer to move themselves into an odd angle in order to observe the kitten. I did this on purpose, so that the viewer can experience the same feeling of discomfort which kittens feel as they interact with the human.

The obvious symbolism of the railing, along with the star, makes this one of my most compelling masterpieces. Note the contrast between the golden fur and the green grass.

Once again, we are drawn into the pathos of the plight of the subservient kitten, trying to find its way in a world being ruined by humans. Every time we waste, don't recycle, or use more bathroom tissue than necessary, we contribute to the acceleration of the end of the world - or at least that is what Al Gore says.

I am selling prints of these, unframed, for $2,000,000.00 apiece.

Seriously, the mother cat nurses the kittens in a box where they can't get mauled by roaming dogs or coyotes. We lost a whole litter to a dog before putting together a safe refuge for these cats.

The mother cat will bring little dead mice or pieces of rabbit fur for the kittens to play with - neat!

One of our cats just had 7 kittens yesterday. Last week another one of our cats had 3 kittens. Aren't they fun!! This brings our grand total to 14 cats. We went from 4 outside cats to 14 in two weeks! Yikes!!! Maybe I need to remove some of the protective barriers around the kittens to promote the whole cirlcle of life thing... Ya think???

Prayer to Our Lady of the Mysterious Decapitation

Mary my mother, take my hand today, and all days.
Lead me away from all occasions of sin.
Guide me in fulfilling your last words in the Gospel,
"Do whatever He tells you."
