That was my thought about the image before I read about the fifth cub. The outlier on the left seemed to be doing his own thing. A really nice clean image and about as much cooperation as you can ever expect from cats!

What a wonderful, sweet photo- so cute! Well-deserved EP. What was the 5th one doing? I hope they survive.....or at least some of them.

Many thanks for the positive comments and EP!

Cynthia, the 5th one was hidden lower right and just about to climb on board with the others when the left one jumped down, never did
get ALL 5 up there as so often happens with large litters, they do try your patience.  :mrgreen:
