This afternoon I found Henry and Ron busily investigating a bumble bee which had somehow fallen into their clutches.  They were fascinated by the sound it made, and had batted it about enough for it to be not very well at all.  Pete removed it, as what we really don’t need is a kitten with […]

and so it begins … Originally uploaded by ramtops We were musing last night on how the kittens would behave when confronted with wildlife, as we tormented played with them with a bird on a wire (a toy! bird, I hasten to add). Ron just sorted of batted it, but Henry went straight for the […]
