Video of Long Haired Black Kitten

          The Thinker

The second kitten of the litter is a long haired black male.  This little guy watches the other kittens, thinks about it and then decides whether to join them or not.  Of the four kittens, he is the most laid back and is very intelligent.  He was the first kitten to use the litter box!  (Look, they haven’t been alive that long so the list of accomplishments is not lengthy but this was a notable achievement).  His fur feels like velvet.  It tends to stick up in a multitude of directions, especially on his head.  Faint stripes of darker black are beginning to appear in his coat.  As you can see from the pictures, his eyes are blue-gray in color.  At first, they were bright blue.  Over the last week, they are becoming less blue and are likely to turn more green in color.  

This little guy loves to play with shoe laces.  Yesterday, when I was shooting pictures of his brothers, he crawled into my lap and played with the camera strap.  I quickly turned the camera on him and shot the attached video.  

Unfortunately, none of these kittens have permanent homes yet.  Please keep them in you thoughts and if you know of anyone in Arizona who wants an adorable kitten have them contact me.
