A proud mother


A proud mother, originally uploaded by Wahj.

I came across this stray cat and her lovely kitten yesterday in a school I was visiting.

She was remarkably patient and trusting with the humans swarming around the box and coo-ing at her baby - most mother cats (feral cats at least) are understandably suspicious of humans, and protective of their little ones. The fact that she was well looked after, with food and shelter, probably explains her relaxed and friendly attitude towards humans. The kitten was extremely cute, though she (he?) was the only one there - hopefully the others were adopted by some of the students and re-homed.
