The film maker says:

"You kidding me, who said you're allowed to be this frigging cute"

This happens quite a lot. It seems to me that when a kind person feeds a stray female cat it is as if the cat is finding out if that person is friendly. And when they have confirmed in their minds that the person is, indeed, friendly they feel confident enough to show them their kittens. And they hope that the same person will be as friendly to the kittens as they were to them. 

It is a calculated, almost rational, decision to improve survival. I've always said that cats are not very good at rational decision-making. They are great when it comes to instinctive action. But I believe they do think rationally. They think more slowly than people or at least most people! But they know which side their bread is buttered on. They find a way. 

This mother and kittens look in fantastic condition, it has to be said. The woman now has a family to take care of and I have a feeling she will do a good job. She will probably find homes for them or perhaps I should put that in the past tense. You can see the bowl next to the building.
