King of the Mountain and other toddler games

The kittens have grown a lot over the last few weeks.  Eeny, Meeny, Miny, and Moe are now quite mobile, what I would call "toddlers."  They are jumping and pouncing all around the house.  They are still a bit unsteady on their feet and sometimes fall on over... especially with the help of Uncle Brutus' nose.  They were moved from the laundry basket to the laundry room, but soon learned how to climb the step and escape from the place that was supposed to contain them.  My house is officially a zoo.

The babies love to play all sorts of very fun toddler games.  "King of the Mountain" is Moe's favorite.  Mostly because he is biggest and always gets to be king.  

Uncle Brutus keeps them entertained with peek-a-boo and hide-and-seek.  (Unfortunately they aren't afraid of him, which may be a detriment to their future survival when they run into other dogs who are not quite so friendly.)  

The kittens have also started preschool.  Yesterday's lesson was how to catch a mouse.

Growing up is hard work!  Play time is followed snack and a bath, and then an afternoon nap.  

The kittens are so cute!  Good thing cat food is so expensive, or I might be tempted to keep them all :).  I am certainly enjoying them for now.

Speaking of nap... it is Sunday afternoon and time for one myself!
