cute and cuddly

What feeling is so nice as a child's hand in yours? So small, so soft and warm, like a kitten huddling in the shelter of your clasp. ~Marjorie Holmes
Kittens are wide-eyed, soft and sweet. With needles in their jaws and feet. ~Pam Brown

Once upon a time there were three kittens, and their names were Mitten, Tom Kitten, and Moppet. They had dear little fur coats of their own; and they tumbled about the doorstep and played in the dust. ~Beatrix Potter

It is a very inconvenient habit of kittens that whatever you say to them, they always purr. 
~Lewis Carroll 
A kitten is, in the animal world, what a rosebud is in the garden.  ~Robert Sowthey 

The only thing a cat worries about is what's happening right now. As we tell the kittens, you can only wash one paw at a time.
~Lloyd Alexander

I love cats and kittens.  I sadly see the overpopulation of kittens around my own neighborhood.  The adults are feral, and the kittens will be feral. Over the past three years, a neighbor and I were able to trap a great number.  I shed tears for each and every one, hoping desperately the kittens would be adopted.  Last year, we didn't see any feral cats.  I hope this spring will be the same.

The truth is: Take one female cat over a seven-year period. If all the kittens survived and bred, she would be responsible for 21,000 cats - they are such prolific breeders: you can see how important it is to neuter.  ~Celia Hammond
