Kittens kittens everywhere? Kittens chewing on my hair? Kittens climbing up my jeans? Kittens hanging from the screens? There's a kitten on each shoulder? Will they do this when they're older? Kittens fighting on the chairs? Kittens tumbling down the stairs? There's a kitten on my head? There's a kitten in the bread!? There's a kitten in my shoe? I don't believe we just have two! (William Wordsworth)
