Meet my little orange boy.
You folks were not very good at talking me out of getting a kitten LOL.
I called neighbors & searched in my country area & would you believe there were no kittens at all available at this time. Also I was looking for an orange kitten, one I can see easily. Got several responses of in 3-4 weeks I should have some kittens but not usually orange...but I couldn't wait that long, could I? Then I looked at local newspapers and very few if any kittens were listed. Then it hit me--craigslist-- and that is where I found my baby boy. I missed out on 2 orange kittens two days ago but yesterday I found ad for kitten needing a good home & his photo was beautiful (see below). I emailed and the woman chose me out of five responses & today I picked up my baby boy at Lowes Home Improvement. No, he wasn't part of a decorating section. It's just where his previous owner and I met to make the exchange.
I haven't named him yet because I want to wait to see what his personality is like and maybe I'll come up with a name that just naturally comes to mind. We've been home 45" and Sissy has barely stopped barking. At the moment I have boy in wire cage so Sissy & LilGirl can see & smell him. LilGirl is taking it very calmnly but Sissy is out of breath from barking. Meanwhile boy is really good at climbing the wire crate. First I took boy to kitchen to see if he wanted any water or to use litter box--no to each. He is so cute I think.
Wish me luck tonight and the next few days/weeks... Kay
