Kitten, Kittens can sleep to up to 70 percent of their life, also Kittens have a strong sense of smell. They can't hear fully until 2-3 weeks, but they can fit their body anywhere as long as their head fits in it. Newborns kittens purr, newborn kittens can purr and can often be heard doing so while they’re nursing or their mothers are cleaning them. Unfortunately, our kittens have been rescued so Miss Darcy acts as their mother. Their squeaks and squeals are much more obvious, if you listen closely you’ll hear their content little motors running. This kitten is named Cleo and also I named it :D! I chose that name because it fits well.

This is Crunchy, he is 4 years old in August. he likes to be held and gets in the most awkward positions. He sheds his skin every 6 weeks, roughly... I like to wear it as a necklace :)  He eats mice every 10 days. Crunchy is one of my favourites.
