Just today, the kittens crawled out of their box and started making their way towards the front door. I had a hammock with three sides tied and one side loose. They are old enough to exercise, but not old enough to climb into a regular hammock on their own. This gives them a chance to use their muscles and balance. This hammock is one of the best ways to photograph kittens who are always in the move.

Mario and Isabella (collectively known as the "obnoxious kittens") are 5 months old. My daughter asked for a kitten for her birthday (her cat had passed away a couple months earlier). Around the same time her best friend's older sister found some two week-old abandoned feral kittens she was hand raising. We brought them home when they were 7 weeks old. We were going to take the girl for my daughter, but when my husband heard the other kitten would be going to the pound he said, "We should take both."
My daughter named Isabella; the rest of us named Mario (we already have a cat named "Yoshi"). They are adorable! Mario likes to lick your hair, nibble on your nose, and cuddle up for a nap. Izzy likes to attack your shoelaces, jump up on the kitchen table, and curl up in your lap.
They hide around corners and attack each other and like to cuddle with each other and my other cat, Yoshi. They have really loud purrs and are both really good with my children. Because there are two of them, one of them is always into something they shouldn't be, but they are so cute we forgive them for always being so naughty.
Baby Age is now 2 years old. Baby was given to us on 5/20/2011. She loves to play with her laser toys for fun. Our pup Vader passed 5/10/2010 and we believe that on 5/20/2011 Vader led our friend Mike to this kitten now named Baby alone in a field next to his house and he gave her to us.

Belladonna was just so beautiful. She lived for about four years before she was killed by a fast driver. She was one of those cats that was always there when you needed a cuddle. I'll miss her.
RIP Bella. X
We got Prince's mom (Kyra Mae) from a family member. To our surprise, she was pregnant with Prince and his brother Mr. Tink.
Prince likes to play with his laser light and play with his little red mouse toy. He also likes to take naps and eat. He will watch the birds though the window and lay on the table, using the bread as a pillow.

These beautiful kittens not quite 6 weeks old adopted my 2 year old grandson Michael's potty that he (Michael) has yet to make use of. Isaiah, Michael's older brother who is 10, thought this was such a precious sight he would send it to his grandma in Canada. It's called "Potty Break". This is not the regular place where the kittens normally sleep, but for some reason they picked my 2 year old grandson's potty that he has yet to make use of.
The mother had 4 kittens. She was found abandoned and very pregnant. The family is keeping the Mom and one of the kittens. The rest are going to good homes.

Kittens are always learning. The more experiences they have, the more confident they become!
