Newest Member of Our Family
And Jeff's current biggest surprise upon coming home from work
This currently unnamed kitten joined our family yesterday. I was at the park with Jill, and a man came up to me and asked me if I wanted a free kitten. Well . . . obviously I did.
So far Cat is pretty cute. Although he doesn't sleep as much as I remember Mandy doing, but that's probably because I don't remember much about when Mandy was a kitten, because I was little, too. I had to hold Cat and pet him until he purred himself into drowsiness last night. And then around 3:00, he decided it was time to play. And he decided again at 6:00 that it was time to play. Haha. It's exactly what I remember a eight week old being like! (He's eight weeks old.) Although, it's better, because I'm allowed to ignore his meows in the middle of the night (unlike Jill's), and I don't have to nurse him! (Although I still haven't seen him drink water despite my efforts. I have seen him eat though. Hopefully he's just drinking on the sly. We'll see.)
Jill seems to alternate between loving Cat and being jealous of the attention Jeff and I give Cat. Haha. Perhaps this will be good training for being a big sister someday!
I've tossed these names around: Yellow, Orange, Golden, Tiger, Julius, Second, Junior, Creamsicle, Sicle, Juice, Bengal, Frisky, Spazz, and George. Most of my favorite names were all girl names, but we're pretty sure Cat is a boy. Although it's a bit hard to tell when the kitten is so tiny. I think I'm liking Bengal. I do live in Cincinnati, after all.
