Cute Kitten Vienna

Most people know that kittens are born with their eyes closed and they don’t open for seven to ten days. But did you know kittens are born with their ears shut? They are plastered against their heads and open more slowly than the eyes. Over the first couple of weeks the ears move into a normal adult position. Here is baby Vienna with her Mama Garbo. Obviously, Vienna’s eyes are open but her ears aren’t in the adult position yet. She looks like a little gremlin. Mama Garbo is annoyed with the flash in this photo but on the whole she was trusted me and had no trouble with me handling her kittens.
