WHO LET THE CATS OUT?

Misty's kittens are four weeks old today and my how they've grown. They are too big now to be contained. They can get out of the wooden toybox and they climb in and out of the wicker basket at will. Each climbs upon the couch with ease. Climbing up there is apparently easier than getting down, but they manage pretty well. Misty chortles to them a lot but they pay little attention unless it's dinner time. All of them have tried solid food, lap water from the big bowl, and use the litter box. I still find that amazing but it's crucial for grooming them to be household pets. I can't believe my time with them is going so quickly.
 
Watching kitten antics has become entertainment for the other cats. Yesterday Sofie tried to scoot out the door as I opened it to enter her room and Baxter was right there at the opening. When Sofie stuck her paw out and touched his nose, Baxter must have thought he was being attacked. He recoiled, then turned and ran to the other side of the room. I wonder if Sofie has any idea how much power she wields over the big cats?
 
Misty seems to be much calmer about the cats watching her kittens as they play. Most of the time she lies on the floor watching them herself. She hasn't made any further gestures toward the big guys. I'm hesitant to allow the other cats to be in the same room with the kittens so they'll just have to continue watching them from the other side of the door.
