Also these next two are Ling as a baby (actual Ling's brother) - you can see they were pointed kittens; and Ling as she is now.

Are you kidding! I don't think it's possible to get tired of looking at cute kitten pics. I was just watching animal planet. It was the animal rescue show. I forget the name of it. It was mostly dog rescues. I was thinking it would be nice if they had a cat network, or at least a show predominantly about domesticated cats. They have the dog shows televised, but I've never seen a cat show on that network. If they show any, maybe I just missed it.

Anyway, he is so very handsome. Thanks for sharing.

He is such a cute kitten and he is going to be a very handsome cat. He has really settled in and made friends with your dog and other cat really quick.

He's beautiful GK! Glad to see he's getting along well in his new home.

About the cat shows, I tried to search Comcast to see if there were any coming up, but to no avail. Do they ever televise them?

I've seen them do the big CFA International one and I think a TICA international one - but none as a regular thing...its hit or miss

Is Ling accepting Charlie well?

A little faster then I thought. She still hisses at him if he gets in her face, but they do play tag back and forth. Its more of a problem if he corners her with little escape at the time - that's when she hisses.

But she's protesting by being picky about eating the past few days. She's not sick cause she's playing, and I told hubby; she'll eat when she gets hungry enough

Great new pics of Charlie!
I also want to say that this is the result of getting a well socialized kitten from a good breeder.
You get a smooth transistion from breeder to new owner and the only major issue to contend with is how the resident cats accept the newbie. In almost every case, a well socialized kitten will win the respect and acceptance of the resident cats in very short order.

GK, I know you know all this, I'm just mentioning it, because your case is another example of why getting a breed cat from a good breeder is a positive and rewarding experience.

Thank you Kai

I also think that some breeds are more social then others. Russian Blues, for example, are more quiet cats and sometimes take longer to adjust. I'm just glad I had off for over a week to get everyone used to things. Charlie's still not allowed downstairs in the basement on his own, but he's ok upstairs to run around.

One of the best things is that if you call him he either comes right away or at least talks to you (unless he's hiding for fun)....

And a good breeder will socialize kittens in the 3-4 months - that's why its a lot better to let them stay and learn the ropes before leaving. You really do get a better socialized kitten that way.

There is a dvd available titled "In Search of Perfection:Show Cats" which is about the CFA International 2005 I think. And I've been advised that there will be another CFA type documentary on either the CFA Madison Sq. Garden Show '06 or The CFA International 2006 which will be televised in the US in April!
