      Would that be a copycat?

    Might be just a trick of perspective or a coincidence, but it looks like the darker kittens are larger, too.

      They seem to be in descending order of size. Since white and light colors make things look bigger, I think the white kitteh really is smaller than the others.

      Many litters of kittens and puppies have a runt.

        Well, sure. Typically they’re not all the same age but are conceived in separate matings over several days, and delivery is last in, first out.

          Indeed – a female cat on heat will only accept to mate at the moment she releases an ovum. This is why she can have a litter in which every kitten has a different father.

    I’m very skeptic about this c*ts. I think dogs, like my dogs – ‘Canis lupus sapiens’ – are more atheists than those c*t persons.

      I have had cats in the past but I agree that all dogs are atheists and cats worship themselves. All four of my Golden Retrievers only worship food and attention from me or whomever is available.

    Why limit ourselves to the obvious two choices? I thinks snakes would be a better choice for atheists, more biblical.

    Full disclosure: I have two cats, one d*g, one snake, one Conure. All of them are atheists (yes, I asked).

      And the cats condescended to responding to your question?

        They try to humor the help.

    The color gradation could be incomplete dominance, perhaps?

      Or: Queening may in the same litter result in kit – tehs made of haploids from different studs.
