A new member of the family--Oscar!
Sunday, June 09, 2013
So yesterday after I got back from riding Shooter, hubby tells me the neighbor called. Her daughter had rescued a feral kitten from her work, and they were looking for a home. They had said it was maybe 2-3 weeks old (!). I was kind of hesitant, but then later, we went over and let her know we were interested. At that point, it actually sounded like the daughter was going to keep him, but then today, she said her other cats weren't happy about it. So now we have a new baby. :-)
He's probably more like about 4-5 weeks old--very active, but his eyes are still bluish-grey. He ate like a horse--almost an entire can of wet food! He's very opinionated and vocal, and a real sweetie who loves to be petted. Meet Oscar!
We have him in a large crate with litter box, food, water and bed. It's the best way to keep him safe, and let the other kitties adjust and get used to him. He'll be in there for the next few days while we are at work, but he'll have lots of Mom and Dad playtime after we get home. I'll call the vet tomorrow to make an appointment to get him checked and started on his vacs. He seems really happy and healthy, and I'm so glad he's part of our family now. :-)
