Hi Lynne - I luv smooching them. I smooched so much I got their little heads wet! They are so soft. I have so many pix of the capture and relocation that it will take me a few days to work on the post.

Hi Carol - thanks for visiting my blog. I am on my way to yours....

How sweet, Beth! You're a hero and you get to babysit. How's that for wonderful?

Beth - with all that smoochin' the ducklings are going to imprint on you as their mother and follow you home -- and, I'm thinkin' given your cats, that might not be so good for their health.
