March


March was first photographed on December 5, 2008 accompanied by two kittens. She can be identified by some unusual tufts of hair on the back of her ears and a cowlick in the middle of her back. March has raised at least seven kittens in three litters at The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. As you view these videos you will notice that all family members are not always present.  While it is always possible that one or more cats do not pass in front of the camera; its also likely that Mom does not take all of her kittens with her every time she goes hunting. As the kittens get older they are frequently photographed out on their own.


 

March and FP-159 were photographed together on March 3-19-2010.

 

On 10-6-2010 she was photographed with a kitten.

12-29-2011 March is calling her kittens. She growls at her son as he approaches and then resumes calling her daughter. March is probably ready for her kittens to be on thier own. They are old enough to take care of them selves.


Beginning in December of 2012 March was photographed with her third litter at The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
