    They say silkies are good moms for other breeds, but I never saw this coming. This little kitten showed up after Hurricane Matthew and adopted herself into our chicken flock. Even after two weeks it's still very difficult to get near her without her running away, but armed with a flashlight and a camera I managed to discover how she was keeping warm at night....

    Good luck to you! [​IMG]

    Be sure to check out the other mini contests too (link in my signature line)...there may be others you'd like to enter. It's a good way of "meeting" other members and fun to see the entries.
