Paul referred to this as a “triple event”: all three of the older kittens jumped onto him at more-or-less the same time.
The kittens love to sit on Paul’s shoulders. It doesn’t matter if he’s standing (as he is in this photo); they’ll jump or climb to get to where they want to be. Tootles, in particular, would spend all day as a shoulder cat if he was allowed to.
The kittens are about five months old in this photo, and they’re already almost as big as Harmony, our “tiny cat” (who isn’t all that tiny — she’s just smaller than the other adult cats). The’ll get a lot bigger, although not too big, since there’s a tendency for dark-furred “thistle cats” to be somewhat smaller than the white ones. (Martin and Lily are white-furred thistle cats. They’re about a month younger than the Trio, but Martin is probably gonna be huge when he’s an adult, just like his father Mr. Fluffy and his uncle Logan.)
