I apologize for my ignorance; this is my first cat, so I'm not very proficient at determining their breeds.
I found him outside my home. I'm assuming someone didn't want him so they threw him outside. He was about 5 weeks old or so when I took him in.
Brought him to the vet for a check up; I have to go back in a week to get some shots done.
It's a bit different because I've only had dogs. I have a 12 year old Keeshond/Collie mix "Brownie", and I've been socializing them a little day by day. Brownie is mellow enough and loves playing with the kitten. Yesterday, he started licking the kitten like one of his own.
Except for the white on him, he could pass as one of the original African Wildcats which wandered into the Egyptian villages looking for an easy life and became the ancestors of all modern domestic cats.
He is an adorable domestic silver tabby! Those cute little mittens! I bet he has a golden belly, with black spots? Or is there a white stripe? The black eyeliner surrounded by white, the M on the forehead, the heavy black bands across the front legs......Take lots of pictures as he grows up, one of the beautiful things to watch with tabby's is how much their markings change! I know, I am a big fan!
Based on my expert opinion (yeah right! ) I came to the conclusion that he is
a cat! A plain wonderful DSH kitten! Got one just like him from animal control back in February named Jason whose color has more brown than him. Breed doesn't matter, but temperament does and you seem to have a sweet boy!
Here's an update on Sam. I took him to the vet on the 28th (along with a fecal sample) and the vet called today and told me that he has Giardia. I picked up the liquefied Metronidazole, so I have to administer that every day for a week. He should be fine, though, he hasn't had diarrhea once since I've had him. I've been doing research on it, and it seems that the most common symptom of Giardia is diarrhea...
I've taken some more pictures over the weeks. I can't believe how much he has grown!
