Post Kittens in August

In August, I shall be keeping my best friend's 2 kittens for a whole week. She is going camping and of course, she is afraid that her kittens might get lost so this is why she asked me to keep them.

These kittens will be 3 months old when I will have them. I must admit that I don't mind keeping them, on the contrary, I'm delighted as I simply love kittens. I even took the week off work to be at home all the time and have a constant eye on them. Therefore, I'm a bit worried all the same and I'd be grateful if anyone could give me recommendations and advices on how to act with kittens. I have had myself kittens at home but it was a long time ago (20 years ago) and I don't remember well what it means to have 3 months old kittens under one's roof. Do I always have to be behind them ?

I also have a female cat myself. I don't think there'll be any problem though. She is very fearful and might even hide from them. Maybe she will hiss at them but she's not a mean cat and I know she won't jump at them and harm them. She might even start to play with them after 2-3 days of stay.

It's also a good occasion for me to see if my cat would easily accept a new kitten under our roof (I would like to have a second cat one of these days. He would even give her company as she is sometimes bored)

Anyway, I would very much appreciate if I could have some clues on how to be a good "cat-sitter". Thanks in advance to all of you.

Make sure you have a litter box for everyone, and seperate their food dishes, watch tv wires, computer wires, etc.
