Our friend Sarah, who comes and looks after Charlene and Co when we step out of town, dubbed these little Easterbrooks "The Kitten Ninjas". She was here taking care of everyone when we were in Portland a couple of weekends ago.
In the kitten room, there's a closet that has curtains instead of doors. The kittens love sleeping in there. It's dark and cozy and there are lots of little nooks and spots to cuddle up in, like the sock box and sweater cubbies, for example.
If you enter the kitten room while they're napping, it's quiet and the room feels empty. Then, one by one, from behind the drapes, these stealth kittens drop out of the closet and land with a soft thud on the hardwood floor.
They're always a little bit dazed, because just seconds before they were sound asleep, so they stand frozen in the positions they landed in while they wake up and figure out what's going on. Posed in their little black coats, they look just like little kitten ninjas.
