We have collected adorable cute pictures of kittens for the enjoyment of our visitors and readers. A kitten (also known as a kitty or kitty cat) is a juvenile cat. After being born, kittens are totally dependent on their mother for survival and do not normally open their eyes until after seven to ten days.
