# What's new Pussycat? Whoa-oa-oah. #

0:00:360:00:43

What's new, Pussycat?

0:00:430:00:46

Welcome to Meet The Kittens,

0:00:460:00:48

I'm Cerrie from CBeebies

0:00:480:00:50

and in this show I'm going to take you

0:00:500:00:52

into the world of cats and kittens.

0:00:520:00:55

One in every ten homes has a cat. Maybe you have a cat?

0:00:550:01:00

Or your neighbour has a cat?

0:01:000:01:02

Because they're everywhere.

0:01:020:01:05

On the wall, peeping round corners,

0:01:050:01:09

even in places you wouldn't think about.

0:01:090:01:13

Oi, what you looking at?

0:01:130:01:17

Oh, I'm off exploring.

0:01:170:01:21

Cats come in all shapes and colours and sizes.

0:01:210:01:24

There are lazy cats, there are hungry cats, there are itchy, scratchy cats,

0:01:240:01:31

there are tired cats,

0:01:310:01:33

there are spoiled cats.

0:01:330:01:36

There are cats who have no fur, there are cats on the lookout,

0:01:360:01:41

there are even scaredy cats.

0:01:410:01:44

And there are BIG cats.

0:01:440:01:49

Whoa, I didn't mean that big!

0:01:490:01:53

But most of the time cats just take it easy.

0:01:530:01:56

So, let's meet the stars of our show.

0:01:590:02:02

This is Coco.

0:02:020:02:04

Hiya, everyone. Oh, I'm tired out.

0:02:040:02:08

Coco's not being a sleepy cat, she's got an excuse.

0:02:080:02:12

See how big her tummy is?

0:02:120:02:14

That's because she's going to have kittens.

0:02:140:02:17

And this is her sister, Cleo.

0:02:190:02:22

She's going to be a mum too.

0:02:220:02:24

Cleo, oh, you look tired as well.

0:02:240:02:29

No, not tired. Hungry.

0:02:290:02:32

Oh, yummy breakfast. It's not just for me, you know.

0:02:350:02:39

I have to eat for me babies, as well.

0:02:390:02:43

Oh, Cleo, but you always eat lots anyway, don't you?

0:02:430:02:47

On Meet The Kittens, we're going to see

0:02:490:02:52

Coco and Cleo as they become mums.

0:02:520:02:55

And then follow the kittens as they grow up.

0:02:550:02:59

Coco and Cleo live in the country,

0:02:590:03:03

but all cats, in the city or the country,

0:03:030:03:06

wander about wherever they want.

0:03:060:03:09

They're not like dogs who have to be walked,

0:03:090:03:12

and take over the whole house because they're so big.

0:03:120:03:17

Cats do what they like, when they like.

0:03:170:03:22

Sometimes they even stay out all night.

0:03:220:03:29

Female cats can have their first litter of kittens

0:03:290:03:32

when they are very young.

0:03:320:03:34

But Coco and Cleo's owner didn't realise this.

0:03:340:03:38

So even though they're only eight months old

0:03:380:03:41

they're about to become mums.

0:03:410:03:43

Today, Cleo and Coco are off to see the vet for a checkup.

0:03:470:03:51

Their owner wants to make sure they're healthy and ready to be mums.

0:03:510:03:57

Oh, this is exciting. We're going for a ride in the car.

0:03:570:04:01

I love car rides, but my sister, no, she doesn't.

0:04:010:04:06

That's right, Cleo. Coco hates cars.

0:04:060:04:11

Yeah, well, they're noisy, everything moves too fast,

0:04:110:04:14

and you never know when you're

0:04:140:04:16

going to get to the end. Oh, I bet it's the vets.

0:04:160:04:20

Coco's right. It is the vets.

0:04:200:04:26

Oh, no, not this old place again. I thought we were going somewhere new.

0:04:260:04:31

The vet is going to look inside your tummy and see how your babies are.

0:04:370:04:42

-Oh, what can he see?

-Well, that black circle is a heart.

0:04:420:04:47

And those little white lines are the backbone

0:04:470:04:50

and chest bone of one of your kittens.

0:04:500:04:53

But is there more than one?

0:04:550:04:58

Yes.

0:04:580:05:00

Coco dislikes the vet's clinic even more than the car.

0:05:000:05:05

Oh, I knew it. I knew we were coming here and I don't like it.

0:05:050:05:09

It smells funny.

0:05:090:05:11

Oh, how can I get out of here?

0:05:110:05:13

Oh, no, the window's locked.

0:05:130:05:16

Come on, Coco. The vet wants to check you're OK, like he did with Cleo.

0:05:190:05:24

Oh, look at that. It's my babies. Oh, how many are there?

0:05:290:05:33

The vet can't tell, Coco,

0:05:330:05:35

how many kittens there are because they're so tiny.

0:05:350:05:39

But there are lots of white lines, which means lots of kittens!

0:05:390:05:45

How exciting. Some good things do come of being here...I suppose.

0:05:450:05:50

And just one week later, look!

0:05:540:05:57

Coco has given birth to five kittens, and Cleo to six more.

0:05:570:06:03

They're all sharing the same bed,

0:06:030:06:05

and since all the kittens were born at about the same time

0:06:050:06:09

the proud mums are raising them as one big family.

0:06:090:06:14

# Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful? #

0:06:140:06:20

The kittens are born with their eyes closed, so they can't see.

0:06:220:06:26

And their ears are folded so they can't hear.

0:06:260:06:29

Their legs are so tiny they can't walk.

0:06:290:06:33

They can only crawl.

0:06:330:06:35

They're little bundles of fluff

0:06:350:06:37

who will spend most of their time sleeping.

0:06:370:06:41

So, what's next for Coco, Cleo and their 11 kittens?

0:06:450:06:50

We'll see you next time.

0:06:500:06:53

Having a kitten is a huge, time-consuming responsibility

0:06:530:06:57

and if you want an idea of exactly what's involved,

0:06:570:07:01
