Unfortunately, someone (glares at Jaq) tried to get a sneak peek of the babies. Tawny wasn't too happy about it. There was a slight altercation.
The next time the Mama went into the room Tawny came charging at her and bit her leg. The Mama is just fine but it scared her. Now if Tawny is in the box with her babies (which is in a corner behind a bed hidden from view of the door) there is only growling. If Tawny is taking a break from the demanding youngsters, she charges at the Mama as soon as she sees her. Unfortunately, the Mama never knows what is going to happen when she opens the door.
Needless to say, we haven't been able to take any selfies of the babies. We aren't even positive how many babies there are. (We think there are four.)
The shelter's Feline Behaviorist is coming to the house next week to assess the situation. We know Tawny is a very protective mom and possibly a bit hormonal. We think she may have been traumatized by the incident with Jaq. The Behaviorist will determine what is best for Tawny and the babies. It may be moving them to a new home that doesn't have such a negative association. We'll keep you posted.
Here is the only photo we've been able to get of the babies.
Even though we don't have any selfies today, we are still joining The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Please check out the other entries.
