The girl is gentle. She is not a baby though and has understood how to handle cats. I like her attitude. The boy seems to be a typical boy. A bit boisterous and he sticks his head amongst the kittens. I guess he does this because it is pleasurable. It is pleasurable because they smell nice and nutty and they are warm and cute. He should be a bit more careful, I think. Overall though a nice experience for the kids and OK for the cats and kittens.
