Last time, the kittens were just learning how to walk,
but look at them now!
They're a little shaky, but they're all up for exploring.
They're getting to know their world and one another.
# Getting to know you
# Getting to feel free and easy
# When I am with you
# Getting to know what to say
# Haven't you noticed that suddenly I'm bright and breezy?
# Because of all the beautiful and new
# Things I'm learning about you
# Day by day. #
But, what's this thing?
Mum Coco's been outside investigating.
There are cables everywhere and strangers in the house.
There's been a leak!
Water is coming in from a hole in the roof,
so Coco goes to tell Cleo
that the kittens will have to be moved again.
While the workers repair the hole in the roof,
the kittens are moved back to their old place.
Carrying 11 kittens downstairs was exhausting!
Most of them are curled up with their mum Coco asleep.
But these two are still awake
and they want some milk from Mum Cleo.
Yum, yum, yum.
-Yummy, yummy, yum.
-Yum, yum, yum, yum.
She's falling asleep while the two kittens feed.
But when everyone wakes up,
they're going to discover a whole new playground.
There are things to crawl under.
Oh, what's this?
It's a scratching post.
You can try out your claws!
That's a bucket.
-There are stairs that are too scary and steep!
And there are some stairs which are...
just about OK to climb.
There are things to bite.
But not my tail!
Round, funny, furry things.
Hey! I don't think you should be in the laundry basket!
So am I.
Leaving their kittens to have fun exploring, mums Coco and Cleo
take a walk in the garden.
They don't get much time to see outside
because looking after the kittens takes up almost all their time.
Oh, no, looks like rain.
I'll give you a wash before we go back in.
Oh, that's nice.
Oh, keep on doing that.
D'you know? I could stay here all day.
But we'd better get back
and see how the kittens are getting on.
OK, sis. Come on, let's go.
Their kittens are fine.
They're about to learn a new game.
It's called play fighting.
It looks as if they're hurting each other, but they aren't.
The kittens are not only playing for fun -
they're learning as well.
They use their claws, but not to hurt,
as they practice hunting and chasing -
skills they'll need as adult cats.
Their teeth are starting to come through as well.
Oh, come on. I want to play some more.
The next morning, the owner has discovered fleas on mum Cleo.
They're very hard to see,
but that little black lump
on the corner of her ear is a horrible flea.
Can you see it?
Fleas spread disease,
so the owner must act straight away.
He puts on some gloves and sprays Cleo with a special spray
that is safe for mothers and kittens
and will get rid of the fleas.
The spray makes her wet, which she doesn't like.
Cats don't like getting wet.
And to make sure the fleas don't spread,
everyone must be sprayed.
Oh! I'm all wet from the spray.
So is everyone else,
but we have to do it to make fleas go away.
Mum Coco has been hiding,
but she has to have the treatment as well.
Yeah. Well, thank you very much. I'm off.
Now everybody's clean and dry.
Yes, they're sleeping again.
Kittens have bursts of energy
but then they sleep for ages.
Often, young kittens are only awake for four hours a day.
Well, you can never have too much sleep,
especially when you're a growing kitten,
or even if you're a tired mum.
Having a kitten is a huge, time-consuming responsibility
and, if you want an idea of exactly what's involved,
check out the Meet The Kittens page on their CBeebies website.
The kittens are growing up fast and finding their feet. The family's home is in need of essential roof repairs, so the kittens are on the move yet again. The kittens continue to find new things to investigate and of course there is still time for a bit of play fighting. Unwanted fleas threaten to infect the feline family.
