Thanks to all for the encouragement. My blood tests have been good for the past year, so that shouldn't be a problem. I live in a 2nd floor condo, so the cats will not be going outside.
My grandchildren will be thrilled. (They already have 1 dog, 2 cats, and 2 fish in their house, or they would keep the kittens themselves).
I will definitely cross kangaroo meat off my grocery shopping list.
