Kitten math


 
 This afternoon marks the two week birthday of foster kitty Hester Prynne's kittens. Yes, they are growing more adorable with each passing day: I expected that. However I never could have predicted their genius for math:




A kitten square.



A kitten triangle.



A kitten circle.



And even a kitten parallelogram.

These kittens are clearly geniuses and if you are reading this, you should come straight here and pick out the one you wish to adopt.


Thanks to Hilary, of The Smitten Image for honoring this post.

  3. Oh my goodness. The kitten circle is the best. Are you going to keep them all? Yikes! They're kind of irresistible!

    1. They are totally irresistible. I'll keep them for 8 weeks, maybe giving up mama cat first, so she can be neutered and adopted, and then the babies put up for adoption after they are also fixed.

  4. Oh, golly, one will have to be enough, and we already have one. Sometimes, I'm tempted though. Do you know of Strayer? She lives up your way. She's a wonderful cat photographer (of rescue cats), and I would suggest that you check out her recent lineup just for the joy of seeing such beauty if nothing else.

    1. I just went and lurked on her blog, wondering if maybe I'd seen her written about in the local paper at some point. Wow. She's probably single-handedly prevented the birth of thousands of unwanted kittens.

  7. I hated geometry in high school but if these kitties had been involved I might have gotten a decent grade.

    1. The black one is yours. Come and get her. She grows cuter by the hour.

    2. Black kittens are always the last ones to be adopted. How I WISH you didn't live in *&^%$! LONDON.

  11. I have always wanted a black kitten.. they were the first to go in the litter from which I got my current pair. That worked out just fine though.. I adore my cats.

    These little ones are just adorable, Kerry. I love your kittie math. Too cute.

  12. Awww Hilary, I love black cats too. I can't understand why black cats and dogs linger in the shelters. I wish you could adopt this little sweetie.

  15. Very clever Kerry. When they master pythagorean theorem, my middle school son will want them to sit next to him in geometry and algebra classes.

    Congrats on the post of the week.

    1. These little smarties would LOVE to move in with you and your family. Cheaper than a math tutor, & far more fun!

      Well...maybe not cheaper in the long run.
