Our cat Sooty gave birth to five beautiful kittens four weeks ago.
For anyone who hasn’t had this experience… I thought I’d tell the story of a month in kittens.
When they’re first born they look like this – sort of blind mouse-creatures with claws and whiskers.
By three weeks of full-fat mother’s milk, they’re more like fat little guineau pigs – and spend most of their time climbing over each other to get at one of Mum’s teats
Then at four weeks, suddenly they’re miniature cats, their eyes are open and they’re learning to walk…
“C’mon guys… there’s a whole suite of furniture out here for us to test our claws on….”
“What do I do with the right paw again?”
“….and now you lift the left and put your weight on the right….”
Today… the kitchen floor.
Tomorrow… the curtains! Muhahahahaha!
