have u got a cat already? i have 6 cats and when i got my last 2 kittens my others werent impressed lol
but when i had my first cat and i got my second i was really worried as my older cat hissed and got proper cross at the kitten but it doesnt last long.
I have one cat that doesnt bat an eyelid just looks at the kittens in disgust
so depends on ur cat in a way, they will soon be best friends x

my kids have been fine with them, u have to be careful as they can be abit rough with them and some will scratch(mine never have though)
Jess carries the kittens around and they let her, the more the kids handle them the better x

Personally I find kittens hard work but that could be because I've just got the one and she is a handful. She is as bad if not worse than having a puppy right now especially towards me. Dont get me wrong she is lovely and pretty good with the kids but boy do I wish I had an older cat right now. I've just got back in from being out all day and she has gone through the motions of attacking me and then being OVERLY affectionate to me and stopping me from doing what I want and attacking me again lol... Still gotta love her lol. I wonder if its better to have 2 cats/kittens rather than just 1 as then when your out they can entertain each other. also they mess up your leather sofas if you have them esp as kittens as they hang on with their claws and pull themselves up. Oh and they need fleeing and worming every 4wks. Despite using spot on from ASDA and a flea spray Smudge still has fleas I can easily pull off a good 2-3 every day or so when she lets me and I treated her for them nearly 2wks ago and keep spraying her.
