    Meet my new little boy

    Sunday
    April 13 2014

    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

    Heehee, I got so excited when I saw this thread. Woo hoo! And sorry, I was one of the people that didn't talk you out of it. And boy am I glad. He is soooo adorable!!! I look forward to watching him grow up and hear of his adventures with Sissy and LilGirl.
    Welcome to a wonderful home little one.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Paul said "that's a scared kitten" and I told him that was probably the photo from Craigslist! Looks like a Bob(cat) to me!

    Don't know much about cats but I do recognize a sweet little kitten when I see one. Love the orange colour.

    Oh my, still got his baby blue eyes! How old is he, Kay?

    You sure do have some fun ahead of you, with a kitten in the house! Lots different than a mature cat, ha haaa.

    Has Sissy stopped barking yet?

    This so reminded me of my "Baby Chestnut," who also still had his blue eyes when I got him (in a PetCo parking lot). Orangies are great! (I've had 2).
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    If he's got blue eyes he's less than 6 weeks old. You might want to supplement his food with KMR for a couple more weeks. Good luck with the sweet baby!
    I've been finally defrosted by cassiesmom!
