A cat gave birth to three kittens in our garden last night. I woke up this morning to a house full of chewed-up shoes because the dog had been let in to stop him barking at the cats. We have an old cabinet thing in the back of the garden and the mama cat and babies were hiding in it – they were so cute, each one a different color.

Sure enough, as soon as I let the dog out, he scared off the mama cat and she ran up a tree and into next door’s garden, leaving the three kittens behind. They hadn’t even opened their eyes yet. I scooped them up in the palm of my hand and wondered what to do with them.

I would probably have kept them as I much prefer cats to dogs, but my housemates hate cats and I didn’t fancy my chances of covertly keeping them in my room. I found an old yellow tub and put the kittens in it on the wall where I hoped the mama cat would find them. I could see the cat eyeing me from the top of one of the buildings.

Ten minutes later and the tub had disappeared, perhaps having fallen off the wall or being taken down by the neighbors. Possibly the cats are now living happily together somewhere or maybe the kittens were eaten by a dog, I don’t know.

Other than work, this was the most exciting thing that happened to me this week.
