As a first time father of a litter of 3, I'm starting to think about my children's education. Do you have any book suggestions for my young whipper-snapper kittens? Also, any ideas for litter-box training? My pet is getting tired of cleaning up the accidents.

I am going to divide my response to your questions into two separate posts. This one shall regard your curiosity into my recommendations for little kitties' literature. I have amassed quite an assortment of books for you to choose from, and I have ordered them according to the proper age of interest. Enjoy!
