Still only about a month old, the kitten’s home is under the bushes, on a low rooftop, or in any unoccupied storage space that is dusty and crawling with insects. They eat, play, hide, sleep and practice their skills to get them through life.

We were born under a bush, and our lives continue to revolve around our bush. I am not sure if it is the same one we came into the world under, as we spend time under many different bushes, but it is the one where we are right now. My brothers and sisters are always with each other; we do everything together. We eat under the shade of the leaves, and we hide in the branches where it is difficult to find us.
 
There is a slab of stone to sit on where we are also given food by something that is not like us. The milk from our mother is not enough; I am always hungry. Among the leaves and twigs we play and hide. SCROLL OVER image to see one of our games. Sometimes we practice our skills, other times we sleep. Keeping clean is a full time job. I have learnt to climb up into the branches, and I found a special place between two where I feel safe. Mother is not always around. She comes and goes; I know not where. Maybe one time she may not come back.
 
   

Sometimes we climb up into the bushes for protection. You have to look very hard to find us and need to search among the leaves. We have found several places where more than one of us can squeeze in, like in the image below. We are lucky, it is middle of the summer, and it will not rain for another couple of months, so we are outside all the time. When we are not sleeping or hiding we play under the sun out in the open.

We have not gone too far just yet. The bushes are near for quick cover if there is any danger. My brother is white with a few black spots and is the biggest and the strongest of the five of us. SCROLL OVER THE IMAGE to see him, he thinks white is cool, but it shows up the dirt more easily. We are learning to clean ourselves; mum says we have to do it all the time to keep our coats in good condition as we get older. We can get fleas in or fur and serious tummy problems if we eat something bad when we are hungry. There is no one to help us, or a vet to put us right.

I am not sure if I am a boy or a girl, maybe you can look and tell me. I will lift my tail so you can see. Not sure, still too young I suppose, cannot tell the difference yet. We have been learning the moves, jumping, pouncing, clawing, biting, rolling over and crawling slowly. We practice on each other, taking it in turns at the different rolls. SCROLL OVER the image to see us practicing.

That’s me again below, facing off my black-and-white brother. Should I pounce first or should I roll on the floor this time and let him jump and grip me with his teeth? Behind him is my sister, she thinks she is beautiful.

   
She probably is, with golden speckled patches all over her fur coat. They seem to glow when the light catches them; it is hard not to admire her. However, trying to stand on your back paws showing off, it could be a new pounce manoeuvre. Or is it to get one up on us boys, being the only girl. There is more on us in the pages to come. Life is going to get better for us with some help, we are lucky.
