Our new addition, Louie

jomuirJuly 18, 2012

We lost our elderly cat Asia late last summer and have had 1 housecat since. DH was offered a kitten at work & brought him home. The lady said he was 9 wks old, which I thought may be a bit young, but then when the vet saw him, he said he was more likely 7 wks old! He was only 1.7#.

Well, he's a sweetie & has done just fine with us, though I wish he'd had a few more wks with his mom & littermates (DH was told all the kittens had homes & momma cat was already at the vet getting spayed when he got her). We're calling him Louie & he's a real pistol. He has to be in the middle of everything, & is generally a little busybody. When his timer runs out & he has to sleep, he curls up with anyone, dog, cat or person & recharges his batteries.

I had an almost all black kitty that had white feet. Her name was "Tootsie" she lived to be about 20 ! : )

Thanks all. Lisa, if Louie ends up living to 20 like Tootsie, it'll be a blessing!

Playing, killing, almost the same, lol.
Sammy has been working very hard on teaching Louie how to be a Good Kitten. Louie watched him do everything for the first week here, it was so cute. Now Louie seems intent on taking over the world, starting with our house. Look out world, he's on his way!
