Civet cats in the kitchen

We occasionally get visits from civet cats, (the local variety is the Asian Palm Civet, aka Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). Normally it comes by itself and eats some of the stuff we have in the bowl where we leave material for the compost bin, but one morning there were three little ones (kittens?) in a corner of the roof of the wet kitchen.

They stayed there for more than an hour. I suppose they had been parked in a corner by their mother. They didn't move from the corner and just looked curiously at us, looking back at them :)
