Hiya, Firstly apologies for not being around lately, been busy with other things, trying to get back into my photography now the better weather is here, apparently!!!. Meet Smudge, she's a feral, farm cat, an avid mouser who has decided to have a litter of Kittens in our boiler house, albeit in the exit gas chamber, at work. We have had to open the chamber up by removing some of the flooring as it is quite hot down there...Needless to say, mother and babies are doing fine, though she point blank refuses to eat the cat food we put down for he. The kittens do though! Thanks form my support for my previous images. Best Regards all, Martin Wink

One good looking and very healthy cat. She clearly knows just how to do things right and I'm sure the kits will thrive between herself and the human input. Hope you had a lovely week in Cornwall and great to see you back with us again.

Real don't mess with me look, good condition for a feral. Really like the light behind fur detail. Excellent pic. As an aside, re. food try cheese, sounds stupid for a cat but all ours have loved it! Mature cheddar seems to go down well.
