Our beloved Maxine lost one of her kittens to a mean Ginger Tom. He got into the nest and dragged out her smallest baby. Little Pat only lived two days.
Even though we’ve moved her and the remaining kittens into the house, she’s understandably suspicious now of any strange smells around the kitten nest. She is a wonderful mother and grieved sorely for her lost baby.
