A Tail of Three Tabies

We stopped on the way to Vrisses at an area to see some wild orchids that we knew grew on a piece of wasteland. Up a track appeared 3 kittens, we thought what a strange area for them to be in as there was nothing around & we concluded they had been abandoned.tabby

They were very friendly & luckily we always carry cat biscuits in the car, we thought we could feed them but they did not have a clue about eating cat biscuits.

We were very concerned as the 2 youngest looked thin and not in a good condition, we promised to come back the next day with some wet food. The next day only 2 were there but they were really pleased to see us and gorged as much as they possibly could.
