Picture day didn't go off with out any concern at all..
Meira is interesting when it comes to protecting the kittens. I can tell she is disturbed when I take the kittens out of the nest, but she is trusting me enough to know that all is generally well when I have one. Not to say that I can keep them out indefinitely - as you can see. Even more interesting is when I move the kittens out of the nest to change out the bedding. I can move any of the kittens except from the gray kitten. Once I move her Meira immediately follows her.
