ATWATER -- When Mary Benson got her first glimpse of the new litter of feral cats that had taken up residence in her rural Atwater horse barn in late August, she did a double take.

Nuzzled up next to the mother cat were two normal kitties with orange fur.

But then there was this "creature" who was nursing alongside its liter-mates. "It was a white spidery-looking thing," said Benson.

She shook her head and said, "Oh, no. I've had too much coffee today."
