8 Weeks

Polly's kittens are growing fast! This little kitty's name is Marble and he still needs a home. The other two have been claimed, one by us and the other by my good friend Sarah. I read online that if you want the mother cat to teach the babies to hunt they should stay with her until they are 12 weeks. Polly is getting started on that already; she's brought a crow, a blue jay and a shrew (all VERY dead) to our porch and the kittens are pouncing around with them. It's kind of cool watching nature unfold out our front door, but watching the black flies swarming around the dead critters during hunting class is not very cool!
I'm anxious for this to be over and to only have one kitten to keep track of instead of three.

Oh how I wish I could take your little kitty. How adorable is he? You know I love cats and am scared to get another. Not sure if ours would get angry and turn into not so nice a cat. However, if I was closer I'd take little Marble. He looks so nice! Hope you have a great weekend. :)
