Why it’s important: Timber, the kitten on the right challenged all-star vet champ, Kittie Kud to a game of chicken. Kittie Kud had been in retirement for a month so it was a HUGE deal when Kittie Kud was like “alright, I’ll do it.” Neither gave up and they tied. No kitten has ever tried such a game since.

2. The Kitten Condo.
