Good Mother Cat, Mexico

While in Mexico I found this Mother Cat protecting her kittens behind a food stand. I got her some food and water and as I approached she herded her young into a narrow place behind the building. She watched me carefully as I sat the food down and did not come out until I backed far away.  She inspected my offerings and with a silent command called her kittens out. She sat patiently watching me while her kittens fed. She didn't eat anything herself. What a hard life this girl has had. I wish I could have done more.
