He has seen them. He has sniffed a few. He groomed two of them. They are fascinated by him! He has a sweet disposition and I have only seen him be aggressive toward other males who got near Pumpkin or the food. There is that slim possibility though, that one of them will push the wrong button but he is not going to just snap and hurt them.

We are leaving them as is tonight. I observed that they only want to escape the pen is when there is some exciting exterior activity: Dr Wifey or me right outside the pen playing with them. I suspect they will all stay in the pen while we are sleeping.

Still don't know what to do as a permanent fix. Our plan is to take them and Pumpkin down to the utility room tomorrow and just let them play. See what Pumpkin thinks about it. She is very stressed out when the kittens are out of the pen.

Pumpkin has been really stressed since the kittens started escaping the pen. I don't know what to do to help her. I don't know if our interference is causing the stress or if this is normal behavior for a mother with 4 week old kittens?
