He looked out the window over his sink, outside was inky blackness.

KITTENS! Visiting my parents this weekend equals new kitten pics. Several of them have had runny eyes so we brought them into the house several times to clean them up (with tea! supposedly helps with kitten eye infections like that), so you’ll see them with wet (sometimes tea-stained) eyes in some pics.


Couldn’t help myself from sharing. I made this cuties for Fandom Battle x)
