Mr. P. made a nursery /playpen for Possum and her kittens on a big shelf in the back of the garage. They all like it and settled right in to have supper. Possum has her paws full. She has SIX kittens, 3 grey striped just like her and 3 black just like who knows who. Their eyes are open and their lungs are working just fine...plenty of mewing and yowling. When we gently pet the kittens, Possum watches carefully but doesn't protest. Even Mr. P., an avowed cat hater when we married (he had a dog and I had 2 cats then), admits that these kittens are very cute.
