    Ohhh kittens getting busy but no you could not tell by this photo. It sure has been fun to watch them play, learn and mimic Cuddles. They have been trying to balance while cleaning their paws. Tonight they started climbing and playing with some of the toys I found in the toy bin. However Mooch and the others have been amused with all this going on.
