Meet New Kitty

Yep, this is totally off topic but I just had to show him/her off:

Carrie Picutres 2014 005This is him/her meowing rather indignantly at my camera as I took his/her picture.  From comparing it to the rest of the litter I think it’s a boy but knowing my luck it’s probably a girl.  That, and the litter is only two weeks old so it’s pretty hard to tell.

Anyway, my cat Tommy died at the age of 19 in January and in these past few months I’ve realized just how much I’ve missed having a cat.  When a farmer in the area announced he had a new batch of kittens to give away I just couldn’t resist checking them out.  And lo and behold, there was a perfect little striped one!  I’ve always been rather partial to striped cats.

He’s only two weeks old so I won’t be taking him home until sometime in July but until then I’m going to be busy cat-proofing the place again.  It’s going to take a lot of work but it’ll be worth it when I hear the pitter-pattering of tiny clawed feet again.

      You know, English really needs a gender-neutral pronoun besides it. That would make life so much simpler but because such a thing doesn’t exist I call him/her NK, short for ‘New Kitty’ until I’m sure what gender it is. 🙂

    So cute! Sometimes we grow so used to a certain thing in our life that we realize we need it.

    I’ve always had cats, although they’ve all been outside cats except for my mom’s when I was very little. (We live on a farm.) Right now I think there are 3 different litters. At one point, we had over 60 cats. Talk about cat lady!

      I’m definitely not one to judge as pretty much all of the farms in my area have that many cats. They’re just a fact of life so it’s pretty easy to get a kitten around here. Unfortunately that means I’m probably at a high risk level for becoming a crazy cat lady in a couple of decades. 😉
