Watch out for Kittens!

I live in a townhouse/condo complex with a lot of turns, twists and round-abouts in the road leading into and through the complex. I can only assume they put in such a windy road to cause people to drive more slowly. Well of course people still take the turns as fast as they can, and there is one particular turn which worries me the most.

This turn we call the kitten crossing, as twice a year, there is at least one litter of feral kittens who hang out at this corner. They cross the two lane road right at the turn, darting out from the cover of ivy on one side and a rose hedge on the other.

Thankfully I have never seen an injured kitten, but it just breaks my heart every time I do go by to see them playing in the sun, or their little heads poking out from under the roses.

(I tried to get a picture of them, but they are so darn fast!)

ACK! Poor little things. I hope they're OK.

It's something that we get so motherly toward kittens and other baby animals.

Poor kittens. I hope they're safe.

I wish I could join the sympathy for the cats vibe, but...I really don't like cats, so I get to be the heartless bastard in the group. :-)

Those kittens sure grow up fast. It always amazes me how they find all the Condo/town home complexes.
