Last Friday after getting off of work, a lady came to me and asked me if I wanted a cat. Since all of you are aware of my love for cats, I couldn't say no. And after seeing the kitten, I had to say yes. He is 6 weeks old and he is an orange tabby domestic shorthair. I just melted. He has bluish green eyes that were begging for me to take him home. The lady who is a vet tech, already gave him his first shots. He was really sleepy the first couple of days from his vaccines. I tried playing with him with the feather on a stick to help him stay awake for a while. Today he was acting like a kitten his age(running around, playing,etc.) I named the little one Rascal because that is what he is. He has the habit of licking me(not from being hungry,either.)on the face and hands. He also likes to cuddle up to me when I sleep or watch tv. And yesterday, he was running around and playing. Since he came into my life, I felt very happy. My spirits are up. The lady who gave him to me was very kind. I already have an unopened bag of Iams Kitten Food that I had when I had Jake. The lady gave me another bag. So I am covered for a while. I also give him canned food. She will only charge me $5.00 for each of his shots and she told be that their is a neuter clinic that charges only $15.00. So I am pretty well off. Rascal is very active and healthy. I am so happy and Rascal is happy too. He is always following and never loses sight of me. When he does, he cries. If I put him down on the carpet, he will climb back onto me. So our bonding is going off to a great start.
