It looks like something grabbed the missing kittens

It looks like something has grabbed those three missing kittens.  I haven't seen any sign of them for several days now.  Maybe worse, some of the older stray/ferals that had been coming by to eat haven't shown up in a while.  There is a vacant lot and a patch of woods across the street.  Those woods are mostly surrounded by fields and pastures, so who knows what could be running around over there.

About all I can do is keep the last two kittens inside at night, and try to ensure the older kitties have a safe place to hide if they need to.

On the good side, Calleigh is getting more comfortable being around me while she's inside.  With luck, I'll get to pick her up and take her to the vet sometime soon.  The remaining two kittens are getting around better, and are eating solid food, although they still hit the milk bar when it's open.

Starting to worry a little

Just a quick note. The little kittens had been running around, climbing up the stairs and eating great. 

But for the last day or so, I've only seen two of them -- the orange boy(?) and one of the black and white ones.  Not sure if the others are hiding somewhere, or something has happened to them.

There has been a family of raccoons running around the last few days, eating the cat food and bird food.  The kittens were running around with the raccoon babies, and everyone was pretty much ignoring everyone while I was watching.  Not sure if they would attack kittens or not.

Momma Calleigh doesn't seem upset, but she is a new mother (less than a year old) so I'm not sure how she would react if something went wrong.
