Kittens...

The kittens are at that age where you want to keep all of them. They are old enough to have their own little personalities, yet not old enough bite or scratch hard. And their faces are to die for - so puggy and cute. They are so curious as they discover the new world around them. They aren't fully coordinated yet, so it's even cuter to watch them fall around while doing so.

Even Winslow can't resist them.

We brought them outside today to play - they still live in the garage. They loved it. It was a nice, warm, sunshiny day. They met the chickens for the first time too. They thought it was great fun to chase the chickens...until they got pecked a couple of times.

We've become kind of lazy in our names for this batch. The back and white ones are "Cowboy" and "Cowgirl" - pretty boring. And the three black ones are Balooju (Baloo Junior), Baloojutu (Baloo Junior II) and Fooju (Footie Junior). Baloo and Footie were two cats from the previous litter. I think the novelty of kittens is wearing thin...

Cowboy is by far my favorite. He is probably the smallest of the bunch but is certainly the most curious. I might have to keep him :)

I've been thinking that I need a kitten. . . and this doesn't help me resist!
