Kittens in a Cage

.
Pinky took to climbing like a monkey right away in the cage.




Pinky loves to jump up and hang unto the scratching post


In order to social the kittens to the big cats, the cage was a safe place for them.


Uh oh! Pinky and Shadow notice a kitty on the book shelf.


Too much of a temptation for Pinky, he knocks the kitty off the shelf.




Luckily, it didn't break!

Pinky is about ten weeks old in this picture.

Sunday

Pinky Kitten

 This is Pinky

Isn't he a cutie?


Pinky resembles a kitty I once had as a child. See his little brother hiding beneath him?


Pinky is about 9 weeks old in these pictures


Pinky has the most unusual eyes.

Friday

The kids (kits) got to go outside today!

The sliding glass doors in their room leads out into a screened in Gazebo. Today was a nice day and so I let them out.

Ninja and Bambi are always trying to get out any door they can all the time, so they were out in a flash to investigate. They seemed a bit disappointed, though. They couldn't figure out how to get beyond the screening.

Timmy and Buffy were very nervous about being outside. Timmy has accidentally gotten outside twice and was traumatized by his experiences.

Buffy has never been outside under any circumstances. She handled the adventure much better than Timmy did sniffing around and very interested in an insect flying by.

I even brought the kittens out in the large carrier. Since they are feral, and have been living in the bathroom the last two weeks they seemed quite happy to be outdoors and were very interested in the birds outside.

I took a lot of pictures but they didn't turn out well. I had the camera on the wrong settings! By the time I realized it, dusk was upon us, it was chilly and time to go in.

You might not be able to discern the screening. Bambi is sitting before the zipper opening to wistfully gazing at the big outside world and all the nearby dirt where she would just LOVE to roll around in! The gazebo has an old carpet for it's "flooring". Someday it will be something more attractive. You will notice some shelves to her left. That is where my bonsai collection is displayed.
