it’s still less than a year since we first saw some little kitten, and some months less before they joined us at our place – one of them, miukumauku, at our home, and the other two at our neighbours’. last weekend, on the day we returned from tyrol, it was the not-anymore-kitten’s first birthday!
(it was not so simple to get all three of them into one picture and make them look at the camera. in fact, they never did that when i was ready to take a picture. so i ended up looking for shots where they were not half busy eating or presenting their butts, but somehow looking nice.)
we don’t think they actually noticed that this day was somewhat special for them, but then, who cares if there’s food and good weather:
so we watched them play for some time, trying to catch each other, crawling through the grass, looking for food, etc.
finally, here’s a nice portrait shot of miukumauku:
