The five kittens are eight weeks old today. They are just about the cutest things I've ever seen. Four are almost identical and we can't really tell which one is which. One of the gray striped ones is a male and the rest are females, including the black one.
We have named them Blackie, Carl and the three striped girls are Myrtle, Gertie and Murtie. These were the names of my mother's older sisters.
These must be the most photographed kittens ever! None of the photos I take are quite satisfactory, however, as they won't stay still long enough to prevent blurs. The ones below are the best I can do for now.
Yes, we plan to keep all of them. They will live at the barn. My dogs may never know they exist because they don't go walking in that area.
We will have them all fixed as soon as they are old enough.
They are very playful, as all kittens are, and they make me very happy!
