Funny Cats: Big Brothers
This is Darcy and Tippy Toes and their expressions tell me the flash of my camera was too much! When I was fostering orphaned kittens, I was surprised by how great my adult males were with them. Darcy, like my other adult males, loved to cuddle up with the kittens. Honestly I expected that more from my females and maybe I was thinking of how stern male lions are with their cubs.
When I say they liked to cuddle, I mean that they napped together often. The fact that the kittens could get the adults to play didn’t surprise me. Here is Zeke and kitten Daschell.
The kittens obviously still found comfort in an adult presence and the “big brothers” were glad to give it.
