Everybody loves kittens
No, we haven't adopted a new kitten - I wish! - Flora and Charlie are quite a handful as it is- but there are virtual kittens - or rather a live stream of real kittens to be found here at Ripley's Kittens. But be warned it's addictive!
I know it's addictive to cats too because when I had it on the screen and the mother cat was chirruping to her kittens, Flora heard and came leaping on the desk to see where the kittens were. She started watching, then pressed her nose to the screen when one of the kittens came close. Then she started patting them if they ran by her.
I tried to take a photo of her 'playing' with the kittens but all I got was a big fluffy head in the way of the screen - so here's one or two I took earlier. She was much younger then, and much smaller - and you'll have to imagine that the racehorses she wants to play with are kittens!
Charlie never bothers to watch the TV but Flora loves it. There is an advert for wild bird food for the garden where there is a long queue of garden birds (computer generated images) waiting for a table where the food is served - she loves that one and keeps trying to catch the birds!
PS If you want to help the Purrfect Pals Cat Shelter that is caring for Ripley's Kittens, you can vote for them in a contest to win a large grant to help them care for the cats they rescue - just scroll down the page where the livestream is to the link - or look on the Animal Rescue Site where the shelter vote can be found.
