Six kittens line up and move their heads in unison in adorable footage

ADORABLE footage shows a line of six kittens moving their heads in unison to their human foster dad’s every move.

David Kelly, from Hawksland, Lanarkshire, was on his way to feed his chickens went he noticed the kittens had arranged themselves on the shelf of their enclosure.

The 69-year-old volunteer says he immediately ran back in the house to grab his phone and began filming the adorable moment.

As he waves his hand in the air, the six perfectly lined up kittens move their heads back and forth in unison.

The kittens, four boys and two girls, are 15 weeks old and almost ready to go off to their new homes.

Although plenty of people have shown an interest in the litter, and the charities waiting list has grown, only those who pass a home visit will be able to adopt them.

The short 40 second clip has already racked up 64,000 views since it was posted yesterday (JAN 11), with thousands of users commenting and hoping to adopt one of them.

Lanarkshire Cats Protection posted the clip to their Facebook page, and the video now has over 1,300 likes and 1,400 comments.

From right to left the adorable kittens are named Patsy, Poppy, Peanuts, Pickle, Pedro and Pablo.

Patsy and Poppy, the two female kittens, are black kittens, while the boys are a grey – some with white markings.

The clip begins with the six of them all lines up on a shelf inside their enclosure, looking out of a window.

David pans across the line up, and he can be seen waving in the reflection of the window.

The kittens are enthralled by his actions, and adorably their heads tilt in unison as he waves at them.

Lanarkshire Cats Protection posted the clip with the caption: “These gorgeous kittens will be available for adoption soon.

“If you are interested in adopting a kitten you can email us and we will add you to our waiting list.

“Please note we home mainly in Lanarkshire and we don’t home kittens where there are children under five. Please don’t message about the kittens but you can send an email.”

So foster dad David can keep track of the kittens in his and wife Tricia’s care, they use a different letter of the alphabet each month to name them.

The litter came from a farm in Caldercruix, Lanark, and when David went to pick them up he expected to find three kittens, not six.

The adorable kittens have won over social media users with their antics

Speaking today, David said: “The response to the video has been phenomenal, I only intended to show it to the other volunteers but it was shared on the Lanarkshire Cats Protection page and it has had such a great response.

“There were people commenting saying that they would want the kittens for a present, or for their children, but we wouldn’t give them to them. We want to make sure the kittens are properly homed.

“Surprisingly we have one woman in Edinburgh who just lost her cat and is interested in two of the kittens, so we are going to do a home visit with her in the near future.

“We don’t usually home outside of the Lanarkshire area, but sometimes we take an exception.”

He added: “I was going out to feed my chickens when I spotted them all lined up like that. I ran back in the house and grabbed my phone to start recording, once it was shared on the page the response has just been absolutely crazy.”

Social media users went wild for the

Michelle Stewart asked: “Is it too soon to adopt another lol #crazycatladyhere.”

Wendy Hunt added: “Omg I wish we could have them all.”

Anne McGinley commented: “Aww they are gorgeous and one like sooty at the end.”

Lianne Findlay added: “Ooooh look at the cute kitties.”

While Edward Eagle Tierney warned: “Just mind a kitten grows in to a cat and can live for over 20 years people. So think long term and not just that it is a cute kitten. I don’t want see them abandoned.”

Cats Protection rehomed and reunited 47,000 cats and kittens in 2015 – an average of 130 cats a day.

The charity has 32 branches nationwide, and over 250 branches ran by some of their 1,000 volunteers.
