The first graders took a short field trip to visit the NINE kittens born in the MICS house a few weeks ago. Our two mother cats had kittens within 24 hours of each other. They are all one big happy family. They do know which kittens belong to what mother …… but they share the responsibility and feeding times.
The first graders enjoyed holding and playing with the little kittens. They were afraid at first as the children are not used to house pets. They tend to treat animals in a rough and tuff manor so it is good for the children to learn how to care for a pet and be kind and gentle. They check on them often and look for changes in them.
They told me they are not afraid anymore(-: Yes…… they all want one to take home!
