Kittens are born with their eyes shut.  In about a week their eyes open so they can see.  Kittens are born little. Kittens can not talk unless it is in a literary story like, Splat the Cat. When kittens first get on their feet they are wobbly.   Kittens get big enough to lap from a dish.  Kittens like to play attack and wrestle with each other.  Kittens are mischief makers.  Kittens can run.  Kittens like to chase moving butterflies and turtles.  They get curious when they see moving things.  Kittens and cats like to catch mice.  Some kittens and cats are fluffy.  Some kittens and cats are not fluffy.  Some cats live outside.
      We learned about exotic cats. When they are born they have short fur but it can get longer. They can be different colors.  They have round faces. The cats are born with blue eyes.   As the cats get older their eyes turn brown.  They might have runny eyes.  You can wash them off gently.  Exotic cats need food and water every day.  They make really good friends for boys and girls. 
      Big cats, like lions, tigers and cheetahs do not live in West Virginia.  Big cats live far, far away in Africa and Asia.  Big cats can not purr, they can roar.  Big cats hunt their prey. Lions hunt together but other big cats hunt alone.   Cheetahs are the fastest animal on land.  They can run up to 60 miles per hour which is as fast as a car. 
      We learned there are all kinds of cats.  There are killer cats and regular cats.  There are nice cats and mean cats.   Some cats eat cat food and treats and others cats eat other animals. Some cats like to play with people and some cats could eat the people.  There are all kinds of cats.
