Kittens go Camping

After calling these kittens "monsters" I had the brilliant idea to do a photo series of the kittens being 'monsters' by invading a set of doll furniture. Finding doll furniture around here has been impossible, but I did find a really cute camping set at Target (the line had an adorable travel set as well with luggage) and I absolutely could not resist the idea of the kittens going camping.

Tomorrow they tell ghost stories..

Happy One Month Birthday Kittens

Yes, our little brood is growing like weeds. They all seem fairly sociable at this state, coming right out of the nest to see me and then to wander around the room. I find it interesting that they spend most of their day in the nest but then come out and wander around when I am there.. if nothing else this shows me they trust me a lot.

But lets get to what you all want to see.. their 4 week photos..

The Kraken
Zookie (with The Kraken)
For you Mina lovers.. 

I also find it quite interesting that at this point this is as close as Happy Bear has gotten to some kittylove

I also want to tempt you to come back this week with this little tidbit of what I got them for their birthday..

Interesting developments in the lives of the kittens

So last night we had an interesting development with the kittens.. object play.  Young kittens often have no concept of playing with anything other than their own body parts, learning what they can do and how they work, and those of their siblings. When they hit about the four week mark they start realizing they can play with 'things'

It was so cute that I was glad it happened under the drop cam so I didn't miss it. While looking for the footage I saw a second incident of a kitten interacting with a toy that made me laugh, so I included it in the first video.

I then created a time lapse video of the entire night. I tend to do these quite regularly for facebook, but I thought I would share one with my blog readers, because I do know that some of you aren't on facebook. I want to share different content on different platforms so those of you following me in several places don't get bored seeing the same thing over and over :)

So then this morning while I was feeding Mina, all of the kittens were out and about in the room with me. All of them were peeping about what they were discovering which was oh so adorable.. but one kitten was meeping.. and I discovered this..

Sully had NO idea what had just happened.. or at least that was the impression I got since he just sat there looking like that while I cleared away all of the things he had crawled behind to pee on.. so this afternoon I will dig out the kitten boxes and put them around the room for the next week or two while they figure out the cues from their bodies that say "time to go"
