Mama of Carson,
Falcon & Martian

in residential woods,
Annandale, Va

Ocho playing with Eric out in the open.
Ocho is an other Houdini who escaped her holding crate before her vet appointment & hid in the shadows. A few weeks later, Mike heard mewling coming from a storage area. We found 4 recently born kittens nestled together on the floor. By setting them up on a comfy towel in a carrier with a string rigged to the door, we were able to catch Ocho & bring them all to their own room upstairs.

Now we had 2 litters of adorable kittens, both with very feral mamas. Ocho was a good sport & a good mom. She & her family were in the office & there was often a person or 2 around, but she seemed ok with that. It was good for her kittens, who picked up on her shyness. But soon they were scampering around the room & interacting well with people.

Ocho's kittens are now grown & she's returned to her solitary ways avoiding people. She is usually seen snoozing on the futon or in a cat bed. She prefers the companionship of his fellow Tribemates.

We'll keep you posted on this shy gal's progress.
