2:1 male/female (cats)

... i think there are three male kittens, and one female kitten ... plus papa cat and mama cat ...

papa cat (m)
fur face (m)
camo (m)
dark one (m)
milky (f)
mama cat (f)

... yesterday i saw fur face, camo, and the dark one playing with papa cat ... he was rubbing up against a tree and a bald plant of some sort ... letting mama cat know he's still around in case she's chilled out ...

the kittens were trying out their attack and slap skills against him ... they weren't very good ... they would sneak up to him, jump in the air (like in the matrix) and swing and kick ... but nothing would connect ... and, of course, once papa cat turned and looked at them they freaked out and ran away ... hahhah ...

he entertained them ... it was all in good humor ... but i noticed then, that milky wasn't with the others ... and found her hanging out in the freezer room with mama cat ... so that was the first hint ... and then this morning i saw her putting her butt up in fur face's face ... so that isn't good ...

[rancher's wife] says not to worry about them and population control ... she says nature works fast out here and that the cats go just as fast as they come ...

it'll be sad when that starts happening ... but there are hawks, and eagles, and coyotes, and owls ... and spring just around the corner.
