A LITTLE ORPHAN
...this little critter happened upon the scene!
Last night Kit was sitting at the upstairs computer and heard a kitten crying outside. We went to investigate, and ultimately located the source of the noise. The poor little feller was under the hood of our neighbor's truck, hiding behind the fan and beneath the fan belt. We got him out of there, brought him home, gave him food and water and a litter box (which he used right away), and he started to settle in.
I still haven't fixed the date on my camera, so while it might say these pictures were taken about seven and a half years ago, they were actually taken yesterday! Enjoy:
Awww, what a cute little kitty cat!
Why do cats and dogs lick themselves in the crotch? Because they CAN!
This one desperately wants Baby Mackie to play!
Baby Mackie is pretty pissed off. He's a senior citizen, and there's a toddler invading his space...
He will check out the toddler anyway.
We may not end up keeping the baby... it is a well-socialized kitten, and appears to have been handled a lot. I canvassed the neighborhood to see if anyone recognized it, and nobody did. Our neighbor said he heard a funny noise under his hood when he was at Safeway yesterday, and that's about a mile from here. So, we will put a "found" ad in the local paper, put up some posters, etc. If we don't find the owner, well... Baby Ricky Retardo might just have a home at Snave House.
