The A kittens (Anika, Alvin, Alex and Alec) are orphans, rescued from a box next to a stop sign. They got shelter with Dog & Kitty City before the snow came. The little things don't have a mom cat to clean them so they look a little dirty, but they'll look much better soon. They aren't ready for adoption yet, but look how cute they are!
There's nothing wrong with Alec's left paw, he just stepped in their water can right before the photoshoot.
