These Kittens Want to Do Your Housework (Photos)

Published by Alisa Mullins.

UPDATE: We have great news—Leonardo and Michelangelo have been adopted! Two of our Teenage Mutant Ninja Kittens are currently honing their superhero skills at their new home in Virginia Beach, Virginia (with a couple who are first-time feline parents—congratulations!). So that just leaves Donatello and Raphael in need of a cat tree to call their own.

Donatello and Raphael are about 4 months old and have been neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated.

They’re still cute as a (teenage mutant ninja) button, but they’re now large enough to tackle some light cleaning.

OK, they aren’t teenagers, mutants, or turtles, but these four kittens—Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael—do have some mad ninja skills, even at the tender age of 6 weeks.

Like their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles namesakes, these feline superheroes had lowly beginnings: They were found living outside a rundown trailer in the wilds of rural North Carolina. Things weren’t looking good for our pint-size protagonists—75 percent of kittens born outside don’t make it to 6 months old—but they were lucky enough to encounter a sensei who had the sense to call PETA for help.

Because of their rough beginnings, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kittens are small for their age, but they are quickly growing and gaining weight in their foster home. Soon, they will be a match for any evil overlord—or fluffy cat toy.

Like most of us, you undoubtedly have any number of dust bunnies, rug fringes, pillow tassels, and other threats in your house that are in desperate need of vanquishing by itty-bitty kitty commandos. It just so happens that Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael excel at that job! E-mail [email protected] to find out how you can bring home one of these bewhiskered warriors and rid your house of unwanted tidiness and predictability and fill it with spontaneous giggles instead.
