I need this like I need another hole in the head.
It’s true, I’m really not all that fond of cats, but this guy has me wrapped around his little paw.
You might ask, “how does a non-cat person end up with a cat, much less two?”
Tilly is Little Bit’s cat 100%. Little Bit understands cats. I think they are about one big step away from living with a raccoon in the house.
Back to the kitten. A family friend was walking in a neighborhood Sunday morning and as he passed a roll out trash-can at then end of a driveway, he heard a faint scratching sound. He found the little guy in a box with the top securely shut, all most at the bottom of the trash-can.
He wasn’t in good shape. They brought him to me Sunday afternoon. Poor thing was dehydrated, and very sick.
He’s doing well on mother’s replacement milk and has even started to be interested in solid food. A visit to the vet confirmed he has pneumonia, so he’s on antibiotics, but other than that, he’s in good health.
I’ve spent almost every waking hour with him curled up on my lap. As a family we agreed when we took him, we would re-home him ASAP. So much for that…..we’re hooked. I swear I’m not a cat person.
So, I guess if he’s going to stay here he might as well have a name. Any ideas?
