This new furbaby of ours is just a delight. She has slept with us every night since she has been with us, and is the sweetest most playful creature. She loves the kids, and they both are so very proud of their new little kitten sister.
I would love to know what her life was like before we adopted her from the ASPCA. Unfortunatley, they didn’t have any information because we literally scooped her up off the the incoming kitten shipment. It’s hard to believe that we got so lucky with such a loving, gentle creature that most likely wasn’t treated the same for her entire young life.
That said, there has definitely been a learning curve to being new parents to a kitten. She’s potty trained, but her tummy has been a little queasy. The vet thinks it’s a parasite.
She’s finally noticed our Beta fish, Fred. It’s entertaining to watch her study him, but so far she hasn’t tried anything. Something tells me he could hold his own though (aren’t Beta fish mean?). Kidding of course.
We lost her for a solid hour last night in our 750 sq ft apartment. We literally tore the place apart in a panic, searching for her.
She was found nestled and sleeping in a crevice of one our 9 strollers. Serves me right. I’ll be making a large donation this week I presume.
She’s also noticed the computer, and finds the cursor to be quite the tease. She has cut into my work time, which has already been cut into 15 times over. She’s so cute though!
This morning at around this morning at around 4:30am, we were awakened by a retching kitten in our bed. We made sure she was ok, cleaned up and went back to sleep. Two hours later, Jack and Zoe joined the three of us and we all three discovered something awful.
“It smells like poo poo” noticed Zoe. “Yeah, I’m leaving, my nose doesn’t like it” said Jack.
Horrified, we searched for the culprit. Apparently Charlie had used her tail as toilet paper. We found traces on the walls, on the floor, and yes… on our comforter.
There’s a learning curve to being new parents to any creature, apparently.
I’m heading to Petco today to find her a nice, soft CAT bed.
