New addition to our family

My baby boy Oliver! We adopted him from the Humane Society on Tuesday. We are having a blast with him. He joins his big brother Charlie. Who was also adopted from the Humane Society.

Charlie seems hesistant and perplexed, as well as slightly suspicious.

Just remember that he is calling his home planet and making reports about you when his leg is sticking straight in the air. He isn't really licking his testicles.

He's a little cutie. But don't let him hog all the attention, Charlie is a cutie, too.

There's almost nothing more entertaining about getting a new kitten, than watching an older, complacent cat find his world turned upside-down. Keeps the older cat young.

There will likely be some hissing and swatting, but the older cat should calm down eventually. When I got a kitten, my year-old cat went to what I call her Quiet Place, which is on a middle shelf of the master bedroom closet, hidden behind the clothes. She sat there for the better part of two days. After a week they were romping and snuggling like two old friends.

Why do you have him laying in a tub of ice? Wouldn't some sort of cat bed be more comfy for the little guy?





Very cute kitten and Charlie is cute too! Also, good on you for giving a great home to a shelter pet.

If you have not had a kitten in a while you can be easily surprised. Be sure to kitten proof your home. They can get into some really crazy situations. Ours actually got into the interior walls of the house once. And came very close to spending the night in the fridge when I didn't realize at first she jumped in there when I opened the door.

Why, thank you!

whitetigeress, it's a good thing you didn't get the kitten before Christmas. He would've been peering out at you from the very top of the tree.

Uh, if you have a tree that is. Or if you follow Christmas. Not that there's anything wrong with that if you don't. NOT that I'm saying you don't believe or aren't religious....if you are. Not that there's anything wrong with it either way...nobody's trying to push beliefs on you here. Of course if you already bel.....aw the hell with it. Enjoy the damn cat.

Thanks for all the replies. I haven't been around to see them. Oliver has been sneezing a lot, so I took him to the Vet and he has a upper respiratory infection. It is not fun trying to get him to take his medicine. He fights it all the way.

That is his bed that he is laying in. Charlie and him are getting along very good. He is actually grooming Oliver. Which I think is a very good sign. He only hissed at Oliver once, when I first brought him home. I have been paying a lot of attention to Charlie. I do not want Charlie to become jealous of Oliver.

If the medicine is in drops, you could try mixing his dose with a little liver flavor baby food, and let him lick it off your fingers.

He's going to be a gorgeous cat!
