The mother cat in this video is lauded for her patience with her five supercharged kittens. The other theory is, she’s just plain tuckered out. Kittens can do that to you.
Our two kittens got into everything. Somehow they got up on top of the refrigerator one night, and Peep crawled into the bag that contained my ice cream-making machine. The first we knew of it was a horrific crash from the kitchen. Happily, Peep was not injured in the least, after falling off the top of the refrigerator in a bag with a heavy appliance. That was the end of my ice cream maker, though. To this day I don’t know how they got up there. I have heard that kittens can fly when you’re not looking. That seems as likely an explanation as any.
