Itty bitty kitty committee

We have five kittens. I feel guilty and overwhelmed. Guilty for preaching trap-neuter-return of feral cats and failing to do it right myself. Overwhelmed at having five new cats in one fell swoop.

Feral mom Pegeen has given up trying to wean these monsters:Hugo is the biggest and most shy:Ida (Lupino) and Andy are almost indistinguishable, except that Ida lets me touch her:Heather is probably a girl. Most tortoiseshells are:And the baby is Madge:The reaction of my other cats has been mixed:
40% disgusted/reviled
10% freaked out/paranoid
10% fiendishly intrigued
40% whatever/what else is new?

Kittens! I know that a batch of kittens is the last thing you need, but... SO CUTE! Those fat kitty heads :-)

Managing a feral cat colony is really hard work. Don't beat yourself up about the kittens.
