Last night, after work, we went off to collect Jellylorum from her breeder. After a good long while of talking, she came home, and was petted and loved on before she was tucked in to sleep in the spare room.
This morning, I woke up and checked on her, and she was pretty unhappy with the setup. She hadn’t eaten or used the litter box because she was Alone and Sad. I gave her some canned food, which she ate as long as she had company, and encouraged her to explore some. Then, after a while of that, we tossed her into the cat room, and she was so, so, so much happier. She loves people, loves laps, but she is absolutely also a cat cat, and she needs company and friends. She’ll likely sleep with the others tonight, and stay in the cat room (with the door shut) while we’re gone. We’re not quite ready to leave a 2.5 pound kitten alone with the galloping dogs. :)
Skimble is the least welcoming, and by that, I mean, he hissed at her once and is curious but doesn’t want her in his face. Gus doesn’t care, Gypsy is certain she’s collected a new kitten, and Fetch is sort of perplexed.
Either way, I know you came for the pictures, so here you go.
(Warning, one picture involves a mug with a bad word on it. :))
I cannot believe you left me all alone. ALL NIGHT LONG.
Hope you didn’t have any plans for the rest of your life that didn’t include kitten entertainment.
She’s practicing for her new role in life.
Then, we put her in the cat room.
Skimble says, “What is THAT?”
Gypsy and Jelly are in love. (Also, Gypsy’s thyroid is completely controlled by medication now, but she still has some weight to gain back.)
It’s a really rough life, living in my house.
Cute kitten. Monster in background.
This is my new mommy.
Skimble is still very dubious.
It’s a rough life.
Then, we came downstairs, kitten in tow, and took some pictures with the largest of our cats. Gus, as customary, is ridiculously laid back about the kitten because that’s what he does.
Hey little cat.
One of these things is slightly larger than the other.
Tiniest, cutest thing ever.
I’m sure there will be more pictures in a few days. For now, we’re getting used to our new overlord. :)
