It’s truly amazing the overwhelming amount of attention a kitten receives from the front window of a pet store. Any kitten or kittens will have little trouble having an endless flow of admirers and potentials owners coming to visit them to oooh and aawwe and literally swoon over.

It was their nap time although one kitten kept waking up each time someone new came to visit. When we got there only two other people were at the window. Seconds later we were surrounded by a crowd of all these new people wanting to see the kittens.

I managed to take some pictures and we had a good visit so it was time to leave and let the other people see them, much to the reluctance of my son.
