The kittens are growing fast and learning new things every day. Dustin, Simon, and Sofie are active little balls of fur and it's difficult to take clear photos of them because they're almost always on the move. They are five weeks old today and I'm trying to ignore the fact they won't be mine for much longer. They're adept at using the litter box and once in awhile I find all three in it at the same time. They join their mama, Misty, at the kitten chow bowl daily and they nurse less often now, which is natural and another step toward being ready for adoption.
All three kittens seem more secure when held, though they don't like to stay still for long. I love watching them jump, play, and chase each other. Misty is a very patient and tolerant mother. Last night she was playing with Simon as he lay on his back pawing at her face. I don't expect everyone to understand why I love kittens so much. I'm not sure I understand it myself. I wish there weren't so many in need of homes, but with a little luck and patience, these three will find their forever families in a few weeks.
