|This is where the kitten lives, in his special crate|
with a blankie and a heated disk thingy under it.
Well, Mom didn't know about any of this, and she just happened to go to the front desk to buy some Frontline because it was time for her to put it on us so we won't get fleas and ticks. And the woman working at the desk was holding this little tiny kitten to keep it warm and happy, and she asked Mom if she wanted to hold him, so Mom did, and Mom liked the kitten, and she ended up bringing him home.
Mom never had to feed a kitten or a puppy by hand before, so she is just hoping she can keep the kitten alive. He is very noisy, even though he is very small. I don't know how he can find so much to meow about, at his young age, but he does. We think he might turn out to be a long-haired cat, but we don't know for sure. He is black all over, without any white on him. Or maybe he is gray, but probably he is black. I think he would be cuter if he had some white markings, like I have, but nobody asked me.
|Kittens are very messy when they eat!|
When Mom brought the kitten home, she held him so that Barry and I could sniff him all over, and then Barry decided that Mom was giving him a squeaky new toy to play with, and he tried to bite it on the head, but Mom didn't let him do that. I was a very good girl, and I didn't try to eat the kitten, so Mom said she was proud of me.
Mom showed the kitten to Chloe, and Chloe hissed at him. Charlie also hissed at him. I guess they don't want to have another cat in the house. Mel and Nicky didn't go anywhere close to the kitten, and I think that's because they are afraid of him!
|His eyes are blue right now, but maybe they will change color later.|
Dr. Michelle, at the shelter, said the kitten was about 2 weeks old, but Mom looked online at how kittens develop, and she thinks he might be more like 3 weeks old because his ears stand up, and he is trying to walk around a little, but he is not very good at it, so I think he needs to start practicing.
Mom said she might name the kitten Carson, like Kit Carson, who was a famous explorer or something like that. She thought of this name because it's like Kitten Carson, get it? Well, anyway, SHE thought it was funny. But Mom is not sure if she gets to name the kitten or not.
|You call that WALKING? hahahaha!|
