May Marches On

Through the window this afternoon there appeared to be a sun shower, but when I went outside to inspect it there was no rain, only mist. By standing in the right spot and looking sunward with eyes shaded I could see that the air was still full of glinting droplets, but there were few to feel. There have been times when I have felt the occasional drop of rain on what seemed a dry day, but this is the first time I've ever seen how thick the drops appear to be when observed from the correct angle. What else, I wonder, have I failed to observe in all my decades of life?

The small female feral cat has returned after an absence of two days, and is no longer fat. She must have had her kittens, but I have no idea what has become of them. If they have survived, she isn't staying near them constantly, which is very un-catlike behavior. Her mother has also returned a few times lately, but she stays briefly. If her most recent litter is alive they are probably about the age she'd be bringing them around, if she feels the place is still safe. But maybe with two cats from her earlier litter still hanging about, maybe she doesn't think it would be safe for the new litter. So I might not have a fresh passel of kittens here after all. That's kind of a relief. i wish I knew what had become of the young cat's kittens, though.
