    They are'nt much bigger than the abandoned kittens I just adopted. So cute. I just hope yours can use the litter box and don't dig up your plants .

    Thats what I thought too. But when you got to get up with them every hour and then every two and etc. You tend to get attatched when they treat you as mommy. So cute.

    I think a pest that large could pretty easily be picked off by hand and relocated away from the flowers! Way too cute!!

    The two orphans I took in became Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Starting to think I over thought the names.

    Of course you can just spray them off like bugs... it might even work! You'd only need plain water and a squirt bottle.

    too cute! I am a sucker as well for hurt, injured or abandoned animals. Good luck finding a home for them. You may want to try a Craigslist ad. A few years ago my street rescue kitten got out before I had the opportunity to get her fixed. I found homes for all four subsequent kittens.

    Mine only respond to their names when I add the magical words "feeding time". They sure understand that.

    my cats new their names quite well. they also understood their nicknames. they were very well behaved. anyone that says cats cannot learn or be trained just hasn't tried hard enough, or did not assert that the human was the leader of the family. cats assume they are in charge unless you prove they are not.
