Thank-you all for the comments! I'm very happy you all enjoyed the video of my always-hungry kittens.
This morning for breakfast, I swear they were standing on top of each other coming through the door.
I know at least one of you asked if this happens all the time or just with these kittens........it's like this with all of them. As they get older they simmer down and realize there is no need to charge the plate.
