Several of you noticed yesterday that Spud seemed to be on the bottom of every Dinichi puddle and pile. I scrolled back through all of their photos to see if there is a history of this, and though it is not always the case, it is usually the case.
So why is this?
Is he the biggest and can offer the most solid foundation? No, Nicholas has a couple of ounces on him and he has the belly with the most sprawl.
The reason, I think: Russell always falls asleep first. When the kittens are playing hard and running wild, one by one, they start winding down. Most of the time, it is Russell who slows down and nods off first. As the others get tired, they pile on top of him.
I'll be watching them closely and seeing if they can further prove my theory.
Until then, Here's a purring pile of one. Enjoy!
Oh, and please make note of twitching paws and whiskers about 1/4 of the way into the video. Adorable.
