Oh my gosh. Oh...I'm so sorry, but I am totally laughing here. Not at you or the anti rat bias you are dealing with at all of course, but the whole inadvertent keystone cop imagery.
Sometimes the best lessons learned are the ones that come from poor decisions acted upon with consequences: Kitty certainly learned the all important lesson of "Don't poke your fingers in the cage or whatever is in there may think it's a yummy or a toy."
Of course, I'm the mother that taught her son fire safety by having a lit candle within deliberate reach of my stubborn two year old who at the time had a fire fetish and had been driving me bananas keeping him away from the fireplace. (It only took once. He never wanted to touch a 'fire' again, and the warning 'hot' got immediate positive cautionary results for years.)
In all seriousness though, of course apologize for the brief lapse in supervising the kittens, and just continue trying to educate with patience and love, and let them know that you are constantly learning how to be a better animal steward.
