Lindsey Konkel, a Science, Health, Environmental Journalist, shared these cute pics of her kitty on Instagram and I asked her to share more about them.
Lindsey said, “ Trumpet is 6 years old, and we've had her since the day she was born. We adopted her mom, Misty--a stray, while my husband was in veterinary school at Tufts University, and we were living in Worcester, MA. Little did we know, she was pregnant and gave birth to two kittens, Trumpet, and her sister Charlotte, a few weeks later. We kept all three of them (see family portrait below from 13 weeks in July 2012)."
"They're primarily house cats, but have loved exploring the outdoors from a young age. (See a few pics posted here from some of their first outdoor adventures as kittens.) I typically take them outside a couple of times a day for some supervised garden time--usually once in the morning and then around lunch time. They know when it's time and line up at the back door. It's become part of our daily routine, and I think I enjoy it as much as they do. Trumpet is my little bug hunter. She likes hiding in the ivy and 'stalking' her prey.”
