18. The ONLY way to wind down after a good rampage, is a cuddle
and a suckle with mummy

weeks and weeks of rain and dull weather, the kittens have discovered
SUNSHINE, and have finally begun to appreciate the south-facing
aspect of their nursery! They are incredibly quick on their feet
now, and shoot out of the nursery door every time I open it. They
have the run of the upstairs for longer periods now, though they
still have to be shut in at night or I'd never get ANY sleep.
Pumpkin and Boogie still hiss and growl if they meet a kitten,
but Teddy seems to go around in a happy daze, and just looks at
them as if they're rather surprising insects if they cross his
path. It is good for them to learn to be wary of the older cats,
as two of them will be going to houses with cats already in place,
and they need to learn to show good manners around their elders.
What is interesting to me is that they now come when I call them,
and they are beginning to recognise their names.

only way I've managed to get pictures of these beasts is to wait
until they flop out asleep. However, that doesn't happen all that
often, and normally they are rioting around and simply moving
too fast to get a picture taken. This one is thanks to the fascination
of all kittens with electrical wires. After I took the picture
I had to remove them firmly from the vicinity of the wires which
are in danger of being punctured.

you thought I was exaggerating about them being vandals? HA!

sad rogue's gallery today, as this time next week will be the
last time they're together. I had to enlist the help of a friend
armed with a cat toy to get these pictures.
I attempt to update the site daily, I'm finding that some evenings
I simply can't connect to my web area's server, so apologies if
you miss a report: it will be up as soon as I can upload it.]
