Baby Kitten

So, this is a bit of an add on to the last post. Yet another baby girl has come into my life! On Monday during a lesson the rider told me she could hear a cat meowing, but couldn't see it. I walked over and saw a tiny ball of fluff crying her head off practically right under the horses feet. I scooped her up and knew I was instantly in love. She stopped crying and would purr and fall asleep as I carried her around an taught the rest of my lessons that day.

I took her to the vet that night to have her checked out. Other than a minor eye infection requiring eye drops and medicine for any possible parasites I was told I don't have to worry and that she's in pretty good shape. She is about a month old. She weighs almost nothing at all. The vet told me she was probably dumped, not a stray because she didn't have any mites, fleas or ticks. Who could dump this adorable little girl?!

So, she came home with me. She is such a sweet little kitten and she loves to snuggle. I hope she stays that way. I don't think my husband (who is still deployed) was too happy with this at first, but I know that he will fall in love with her too. And if she turns out to be a total terror she can always become a barn cat. We could use a good mouser. But for now, she is just loving her new life I think. She is eating and sleeping a ton. She is great about using her litter box and hasn't had any accidents. The worst thing she does is wake me up at night wanting to play. Fortunately playing only lasts about 5 minutes before she's tired again. She thinks my fingers and her tail are great toys.

So I guess I have a cat now. I'm not exactly a cat person, but I didn't exactly go out looking for a cat either. She just walked into my life and I can't turn her away. I'm very glad my apartment changed the rules and lets us have cats now. Because I'm in love!

I have still yet to find the perfect name for her. I just can't decide. I need to just pick one. She is starting to think her name is Kitty or Mowser. My life is so full of babies right now. What is going on?!

You're secretly a cat person... Puck knows your love for him remains strong! I'm sure that cat is completely in love with you for giving her love.

So adorable! How about a name like Fate or Karma or something? I also always liked how a friend named his cats -- Maelstrom, Typhoon, and Cataclysm. :)

(I will bring the zyrtec just in case! :D)
