As I've mentioned, I am a dog owner, but I do like cats. A few years ago, my neighbor's cat was always in my backyard sitting on top of the woodpile. I figured she had found a new hang out and didn't think much about it. She would drive my dog nuts. My dog would bark at her and she would hiss back. So finally after about a week or so of this cat game, I decided to go in the yard to see what was going on....you guessed it....strolling about were 4 kittens. She obviously had her litter in my woodpile and was protecting them. However, the kittens were growing and starting to walk around. Since I thought this may be too dangerous with my dog around, I told my neighbor about the kittens. She was glad I did because she was wondering where her cat had the babies. She was searching all over her yard for them...never thinking they were in my yard. Call it a "mother's " instinct or something, but one by one she took the kittens and moved them, all by herself, to some shrubbery in her own yard. They kept one kitten from the litter and gave the others away. Quite amazing how she had found the perfect birthing place, which she did cause no one could get to them at birth. God only knows what else may be in that wood pile!
