That's amazing Gerhard. What a lucky find! With subjects and stories such as these the quality of the images will always take second place (although there isn't much wrong with them).
They have found the best place to nest in your home, I just hope we get to see more images of them.
Thanks for posting.

Very cute indeed! I wonder if they carry rabies, I wouldn't get too close! I hope they get used to you so you can get a better shot but thank you for showing them to us.
Nice set Gerhard, great opertunity well taken. Have you tried using a red light or red gel over a torch to light the area so you can line the shot up without disturbing them, I know this works for Badgers ( large member of the weessel family) they can not see in the red spectrum or at least not disturbed by it. Might be worth putting the flash seperatly to the camera with a lead between to avoide the red eye effect In the past I have used an old tripod to srew a flash to and run a cable to the camera in this way it is possible to conect several flashes to light the subject.
Keep making the best of it. TFS Yours Robert

Funny and curious housemates, for sure ;-) You're lucky to live with these fascinating animals under one roof. My favourite picture is bottom right - superb job!

Nice cute capture Gerhard,
Good detail, colours and sharpness.
Composition and exposure are good. Good POV and framing.
I'd be interested in seeing the development of these kittens.
Thanks for posting, Have a great week.

Hulle is nou te dierbaar vir woorde. Kyk ek sal darem bly wees as daar maar net een op ons dak wil kom bly. Dis 'n baie oulike foto. Dankie dat jy dit met ons deel.

Hi Gerhard, what wonderful squatters to have! As you say the quality is not so good but it's nice that you post them. I'd love to see them, great stuff. Hope you keep us posted on how they are doing.

I missed that!
Maybe pictures have some nits, but I'm sure you will have many opportunities to take some perfect one. I envy you a bit because I have only mice on my attic ;)
I don't think I've ever seen this animals before. Thanks for sharing.
