As of this morning, the kittens are still in the same spot, with their momma, despite the rain last night. I made them a bed (of course I did, what did you think?) out of a Honey Bunches of Oats box and a towel and put it under the overhang, in hopes that they would move there in the rain and thus be in a spot where I could better spy on them, but no such luck.
I did get some pictures yesterday afternoon, although none of them can be classified as "good". I was still balanced on the arm of a lawn chair, blindly holding the camera over the fence and clicking, so this is the best it's gonna get, unless they come out from behind the fence.
This gives a pretty good idea of the jungle back there. That black blob is the calico kitten.
A slightly better shot of the calico kitten, when it fell over onto its side in an attempt to walk. They are really, really small. Their eyes are open, but they can't walk, only stumble around.
So, now you can see why it was a very good idea that I didn't try to go back there and "rescue" them. The bottom left is the corner of our fence, with the kittens curled up against it. On the other side of that corner is our deck. On the top right corner, you can see the cinderblock wall that divides our alley from the neighbor's. And in the top left corner is the space I would have had to squeeze through. It's going to take a lot more trips to the gym before I can get through an opening that wide.
Here's one I took later in the night, without waking the kittens up. All three were sleeping in a pile, waiting for their momma.
Same picture, just with the flash on.
