Three little kittens

The only way to get all three at the same time is to have someone hold them ... and even then the calico won't look at the camera. Notice there are three hands in the picture. Dad has the smokey cat and the light calico while Mom has the tortoiseshell calico. I think they are around 8 to 10 weeks but I am not certain. They still nurse from momma - especially the calico - but all three eat solid food, too.
This is momma in the extra box shelter I put together for her outside the kitten cooler shelter. I have draped an extra folded sheet over the front of it for tonight when it is supposed to drop into the 30's. All three kittens like the cooler shelter but momma does not go in. She seems to like the box with its extra foam insulation and sheet coverings though. Notice the cardboard "roof" that extends over the front of her box and out to the kittens' door. That supports the extra sheet drape to keep more warm in and cold out. With the drape in place a kitten or two sometimes curls up with momma.
Still available for adoption.
