everyone say "awwwww"

today was the day we found a kitty ... and brought him?/her? home ... we're thinking it is a him, but not 100% sure at this stage ...

when we got up this morning, we didn't think our family would be expanding - but who knows what a day holds!!!


the yet to be named little guy, took to leo right away ... cuddling up to leo in the recliner ...
and when leo went to lie down in the bedroom - guess who followed him?!!! leo is spiking a fever today (maybe a cold?) and cats are such comfort givers ... so this little one is making us both smile ...

he has used the litter, but so far hasn't touched any food or had anything to drink ...

i will be happy once he eats & drinks something! ...

so after "thinking about it" ... we did something about it ... first impressions are quite favourable!

Tiger kitties are wonderful! I have two (a boy and a girl) and they are the best kitties of them all. Very single-minded and loyal. :)

Welcome home little kitty. :D

Cathy said...

A w w w w, he's (?) a pretty, sweet kitty. And isn't that something how he took to Leo! I'm happy for you two. I hope he will eat and drink soon!

He/she is really cute! So this one just came to you? Sometimes the pets who choose us are the very best ones! Glad you have a kitty again!! Hope Leo feels better soon...lots of homemade chicken soup (with garlic and broccolit esp) and lots of vit. C might help!!

He is soo cute! Our cat is tiger striped too, but has spots on her belly. I think this kitty is going to be a real blessing to Leo - are therfore to you too!

Oh, I'm in love! And I am sooo thrilled for you and Leo. What an adorable little thing and how wonderful that already he/she loves to cuddle with Leo. I'm praying that he/she will eat some food soon.... keep us posted and good for you both on taking this big step! Blessings, Debra

What an adorable kitty! Now all he/she needs is a brother or sister to keep it company!!!

Congratulations on your new addition!

Oh! He looks like Rosh, the kitten that came running up to us meowing loudly when my dad and I were walking the dog 2 years ago! And also like Stripey, a kitten I picked up out of a litter of four, because I just couldn't leave him on the street (they were not owned). Both have excellent homes now, and no, I didn't keep either. We have an orange tabby, and a tuxedo cat.

God bless you,
LPP

Such a sweetie!! I love kittens..i bet he knew that leo was getting sick!! Animals are always so tuned into things that we do not know...Sandy

Saija said...

thanks guys! we haven't named him yet ... maybe tigger - tigs for short? and he does have spots on his belly too ... he is being my little comforter with leo in the hospital - hopefully he will be snuggling up to leo soon - i sure hope leo can come home on sunday!

Catherine said...

What a sweet little thing!! He has found himself a good home. I'm happy for all three of you! I hope he's taken to his food and water by now and is doing well. :)
