The cat mother moves the kittens even home many times a day but it usually don't forget any of them. This kitten lloks like bigger than 2 days old but still not much more. I have got kittens from my cat and the photos tell me how old they are. GOOD that there was happy ending. Usually cats must be 12 weeks with their mami that they will be good cats...that's the time the maohet cat put them out also.
