I have two female kittens mother was mistaken for a racoon and was shot. they are about 3 months old guesstamate. I've noticed when they sit and watch birds they make a furball sound and their heads and throat vibrate. I've had maine coons and I've never seen this before. thay are very talkative love to climb and greet everyone at the door. what is the bird thing and is that the sign of a norwegian. the fur is silky, tufted ears, silver back fur and body black fur. thanks
