This is the fourth kitten litter Wylla has got to meet. With the first three, her role was just as playmate, but things have shifted, and now she's taking on a more nurturing role.
I don't know if it's because she's matured, or if it's something she learned watching Bean, but in the past couple of weeks she's started bathing the babies. First, she would just try to lick their faces to get all of the scraps from breakfast, but it's advance to pin-em-down and clean them end-to-end baths, just like Bean likes to give.
It's pretty sweet to watch. The kittens are always a little apprehensive at first, but they always enjoy it eventually.
One of our dear Clovers has left the nest, and the remaining two will depart tomorrow morning. We will miss them, of course, but we're quite excited for these dear kittens. Their futures are so bright! On Monday I'll tell you more about the lucky families who are adopting them.
I've got some more to share with you today, so please stay tuned. I'll post again this afternoon.
