MEOW!

0:00:050:00:06

CATS MEOW

0:00:080:00:09

Remember this? Yes, it's the litter tray.

0:00:330:00:37

The kittens have to learn to use this, as they are not allowed

0:00:380:00:42

outside yet and, if a kitten, or even a cat, can't go outside,

0:00:420:00:46

this is their toilet.

0:00:460:00:49

It's taken a little time

0:00:490:00:51

but the kittens have learnt from their mothers.

0:00:510:00:54

Oh, I should have learnt this earlier!

0:00:540:00:58

Out the way, I need a poo!

0:00:580:01:00

Oooh, look at me.

0:01:020:01:04

Cats are very clean animals and, once they've done a poo,

0:01:040:01:08

they cover it up so that it's hidden and it doesn't smell.

0:01:080:01:12

They know how to do this without being told.

0:01:120:01:15

Oh, my Goodness!

0:01:200:01:22

What's all that?

0:01:220:01:24

It's a big climbing frame for all the kittens to play on.

0:01:240:01:28

There are three different levels and lots of toys to keep them interested

0:01:280:01:32

and excited, and exercising their tiny bodies to help them grow.

0:01:320:01:38

And there's a new roly-poly tunnel thing.

0:01:380:01:41

Oh, what's going on here? Someone's trapped inside.

0:01:470:01:51

Phew, she's out.

0:01:570:01:59

Look how much fun they're having.

0:02:070:02:09

And all the time learning how to hunt and chase

0:02:090:02:12

and to use their claws.

0:02:120:02:14

But you don't need a big cat climbing frame

0:02:320:02:35

if you haven't got room.

0:02:350:02:36

Kittens can play with anything.

0:02:360:02:38

The edge of a rug, for example.

0:02:400:02:42

A paper bag.

0:02:440:02:45

Some scrunched-up paper.

0:02:540:02:57

You could even pull a shoelace under a rug

0:03:020:03:05

and see what the kittens will do.

0:03:050:03:08

How about playing in a sandal? Hey, don't chew that!

0:03:100:03:14

And, if you have more than one kitten,

0:03:170:03:19

they'll happily play together.

0:03:190:03:22

But hang on, what's going on over here?

0:03:300:03:33

Whoa! Who's that?

0:03:330:03:35

The kittens are watching themselves in a mirror.

0:03:400:03:44

They're trying to figure it out.

0:03:440:03:46

How come there are four of us, when really there's only two?

0:03:510:03:55

Don't know. It's magic.

0:03:550:03:58

Oi! Stop copying everything I do.

0:04:060:04:08

Well, me and my friend are going to play with these balls together.

0:04:160:04:21

Mum Cleo comes in to see what all the fuss is about.

0:04:270:04:31

Oh, it's the old mirror trick.

0:04:310:04:33

They did this to me when I were a kitten.

0:04:330:04:36

Hang on, I think it's a joke. Oh, there's no-one behind here.

0:04:420:04:47

I don't like the look of hi... Oh, you're right.

0:04:480:04:51

Ooh, I think it's me!

0:04:510:04:53

Problem solved. Let's go and play somewhere else.

0:04:560:05:00

Oh, you go and play. I need to cool off.

0:05:020:05:05

A fan is just one of the many things in the home the kittens

0:05:050:05:09

are going to have to get used to.

0:05:090:05:12

There will be noises like... a slamming door.

0:05:120:05:16

There'll be strange sounds when you turn on the TV.

0:05:180:05:22

Or what about a kettle boiling?

0:05:230:05:26

Or a funny doorbell sound.

0:05:290:05:31

There might even be strange sights, like fish in a tank.

0:05:330:05:38

Hey! That's enough talk when we're trying to get some sleep.

0:05:420:05:47

Oh, it's very hard to get to sleep with all of these noises

0:05:480:05:52

and chat going on.

0:05:520:05:54

WHISPERS: Oh, sorry.

0:05:560:05:58

Well, the fish are still awake

0:06:010:06:04

but, gradually, everyone does get to sleep.

0:06:040:06:10

It's been a fun day and the kittens will sleep for a good, long time.

0:06:100:06:15

Ahh, they deserve it. Sweet dreams, kittens.

0:06:160:06:21

Having a kitten is a huge, time-consuming responsibility

0:06:240:06:28

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

0:06:280:06:31

check out the Meet The Kittens page on the CBeebies website.

0:06:310:06:36

How do 11 kittens become 22? The kittens get double vision when they come across a mirror for the first time. They get used to new noises, play with homemade toys and get the hang of using the litter tray.
