Oriel has five strong and healthy kittens, and they are really beginning to come out and explore and play in their enclosure. Usually I would of expected them to have been seen earlier than this, but I think mum has just been a bit over protective in keeping them under ground... Now they are bigger, they are much more of a handful for her, and I guess she has just given up trying to keep them hidden away :-)
All good for us and them... we get to see them play and run around, and they get to learn to look after themselves and prepare for the big wide world. Later this year they will be released as part of the breeding program.
