Awwwwwwwwwwwww

Yassmin reported yesterday that she'd heard the new kittens. For a long time, we were pretty sure the kittens were dead, since (a) they were born of incest and google told us that incest kittens don't have a high survival rate, (b) their mother, still a teenager herself was unlikely to produce a healthy litter on her first attempt (google again) and (c) the mother was always hanging around the office, when she really should have been with her babies.

Anyway, we heard the little cries this morning on the roof of the M&E office (which is exactly where Atrice, Anise and Twitchy were born and raised initially), grabbed the rickety old wooden ladder that was propped up around the corner, and sent Yassmin up to check out what could be seen...

"awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww" (with high pitched inflection at the end) "they're so cute!" Yassmin could see three tiny kitties.
Ingebjorg then climed up:
"awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww"
I was impatiently waiting for my turn, hopping from one foot to the other, and finally got to climb up.
"awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww".

They're very tiny, and look very much like their parents. The one I could see clearly looked a bit like this, only grey and white. Hopefully Atrice will bring them down off the roof soon so we can cuddle them!
