Tractor Kittens

It was just becoming dusk when I spotted these kittens. They are sitting on the seat of one of a couple of old tractors on the farm. I suspected they were around somewhere, but now we have seen them for the very first time.

I think the mother is the tabby cat who appears in the blog head image with three kittens in a row. That was a very popular picture, btw, even though it wasn't very good because I had to snap it quickly. Half a second later they were gone.

This queen cat has successfully avoided trapping for a couple of years. She is smart and wary and will not go in a trap. I think the only way I'm going to catch her is with a throw-net. I've been practicing this for a while but I'm still not good enough with it.
