Yep, it's pretty much all kittens, all the time around here right now. They are three weeks old, and the more time I can spend with them, the better - the process is called "socialization", and it's critical to their development - a friendly kitten is much more likely to be adopted than one who is spitting and hissing, and is more likely to be happy to spend its life in the company of people. And since their mama, Honey, IS prone to both hissing AND biting (oh yay), I need to make sure that the kittens are very, VERY used to being handled by people.
This crew is doing great - they will lurch toward me out of the nest box when they see me in the room, and scrabble up onto my lap.
They have also started to play with each other, quintupling the Cute Factor.
Kitten Central, right here. :)
