Kitten Now that I have your attention, I’d like to tell you about the kitten we just adopted from KittiCo Cat Rescue. *lol* I finally got enough emotional distance from Christopher’s death, in early February, to feel up to getting a new cat, so I went to a mobile adoption that KittiCo (the same organization I adopted Augustus from) had yesterday, and was able to find a cat I wanted to adopt. It was a big surprise to me that I ended up with another orange/marmalade cat, since I was looking to adopt one of a different color, but this little guy snagged my heart from the get go. I was utterly doomed when I asked to hold him, and he started purring like a maniac, played with me for a while, then fell asleep in my arms.

I shrewdly went alone, because Morgan would have just added chaos into a situation that did not need it, so he was left home with Pookey… Plus, the allure of Petco is too much for Morgan to ignore, and he always runs us ragged as he goes through the entire store looking at all the animals. *sigh* He was really excited when I finally came home with the kitten, and proceeded to play with him non-stop, to the extent we had to finally shoo him away when the kitten wanted to nap. Sadly, Morgan ended up being over-stimulated by the whole kitten experience, and, boy, were we glad when his bedtime rolled around!

I’m actually shocked at how quickly the kitten settled into our household, and don’t have any doubts that he is the right cat for us. The kitten has gotten over being "hissy" with Gus, and wants to start playing with him, but Gus is still a little "hissy" with him. You can see that they want to be together, but their feline instincts are keeping them apart. Gus has been hanging around near the kitten, but is still keeping his distance, though that distance continually shrinks. I have no doubts that they will be fast friends as soon as they accept each other.

Now, we need to think of a name for the kitten, and are trying to decide if we want to go the Roman emperor name route, as we did with Gus, or go off in another direction. Decisions, decisions… *sigh*
