In the compost heap!

Not really what I was expecting to see in the compost heap!
I've been working in the garden of late, trying to get some semblance of order into a somewhat chaotic weed ridden patch we've been calling a garden for quite some time now.  Part of this work has been to uncover a compost heap started a few years ago that is full of very reach loamy soil that I'm using in other parts of the garden.  Imagine my surprise when last night I noticed a cat with three kittens sitting atop my compost heap!  Time for some shots this morning and I suspect more shots will follow as the gardening goes on hold for a while.

I'm not sure who owns the mother, but suspect she may have been abandoned and is now hiding around the back of my compost.  She looks thin, but the kittens look very healthy.  We'll keep an eye on the family and see what happens.  For now I'll leave with you with a couple more snaps of the kittens.
