Free Kittens! They are about 12 weeks old (3/3/17) If you are interested, email me.
Their story as told by their human parent:
"These kittens are from the holidays litter delivered by the renowned "White Momma" of Fox Valley Court. White Momma is incredibly beautiful, but, feral, nevertheless. She has escaped every attempt to spay her. I even captured her and paid the fees to have her spayed at "Spay and Save" in Seminole County in January of '15. I brought her home and tried to make her a member of my household. Two months later, she surprised me with a litter of kittens in my closet. She subsequently escaped and continued to have kittens. I was finally able to close my garage door behind her during this last holiday season. She had this litter of adorable kittens in the warmth and security of my house, rather than in the bushes. She has been an excellent mother to them, and, they are now independent of her, and ready to find a new home.
These kittens have been raised among 5 other kittens, and 12 adult cats who all accepted them and loved them. They are very well socialized, healthy, and happy. Since they are so social, I hope to adopt them out in pairs, rather than singly, so that they will have the comfort and love of a sibling, and, will not cry pitifully all night for somebody to sleep with.
They are lightning fast, and, incredibly fun to watch, as they wrestle and tumble about. I have many of their older siblings from others litters of White Momma's, and, I attest that all of White Momma's kittens grow up to be the nicest of adult cats.
I have one orange baby and the three white ones shown in the attached pic. I did not pose the kittens for this pic. This is what they do when it is nap time.
The kittens are not for sale. They are free to a home where they will be loved."
