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. :-)

    Awwww! He is so adorable! Just a beautiful kitten! He has a wise look in his eyes in spite of his young age, poor baby has probably been through a lot. So glad that he now has a good, safe, loving home with you!
I have a friend who has a cat she named Oscar. What a cute name! Looking forward to hearing more about Oscar and seeing more pictures of him as he grows! emoticon emoticon

    Oh I so love Oscar and his name. I too have a new kitty but mine is a bit older. I had better do a blog about her. Oscar looks like he loves the accommodation's at your house. I bet that couch is much softer than what he came from.

So wonderful that you have given this boy and new lease on life and a chance finally to have a forever home.

EDIT: I forgot to correct my spelling, oops! emoticon
