The Kids Are Back

About 4:30 this morning the mamma and four kits showed up. They looked totally bushed and they came in from the south which is the direction of that creek that I mentioned. They ate some and drank some and where gone in about an hour. There was no ratting around or playing in the water. At first light they headed off the north to their regular daytime hideout.
They were back tonight right after sunset which was very early for them. Usually it’s well after midnight before they come around. They waded in the pool for a few minutes then hit the chow line in the big cat house. After a couple hours of good eats,  pool play and occasional naps, they took off again. I imagine they’ll back later tonight. It’s sure good to have them home.
