You have to get otsi - you cant mess with fate. When I went to get Dax, I had my mind set on one of her sisters - a very pretty, unusual coloured kitten.

Problem was - that kitten didnt want to go in our carrier for anything, it just downright didnt like us. Miss Dax however, kept purring when I touched her and repeatedly jumped in my carrier - when she fell asleep in there I gave up trying to befriend the other kitten and just closed the carrier door on the sleeping Dax and took her home. At the time I thought she was a boy too, I hadnt wanted a boy, but hey..


Does any of this matter now? Would I trade her for that pretty coloured kitten? Of course not! She is my baby now - and the most beautiful tux cat on the planet

Cats choose their servants. It looks like you have been chosen

-If I had the money, I'd be on a plane to arrange import of that sweet baby!!!
what a angel face!!
THANK you so much for your story and helpfull advice!!!!
You know every time I stop at the Shelter I feel like I want to get all of them home!!!! I wish I would have a huge house where I could provide a forever home for all of them! ))))))))))

and yes, he is such an angel!!!! I already miss him from last night when I got a chanse to hold him.... hate my double shift- otherwise I'd go pick him up right now....BUT will try to talk my bf into getting him tomorrow!!!!!!
Thank you again!

Crossing fingers!!!!!!!!

I have 4 cats, two I got as kittens and two as adults (one 1 year old and one 2 years old - estimates on both). They are all adorable!

Talon, now did they all became a friends as soon as they saw each other? or do they kind a hiss at each other all the time and fight?
And I am sure they are adorable!!!!!
post #35 of 57
Hiss, spit and fight! Depending on the diamics and the personalites, it took anywhere from about 2 week for the second kitten to get accepted to the first kitten and my 17 year old cat at the time. The third cat was the then-we-guess two year old. He just didn't take no for an answer, and loved on everyone - it took him only about a week to worm his way in. The last one (in my avatar) took about 4 weeks. The other three were "just fine" without him. Now of course, they all hang out, chase and sleep in the same area.

You MUST tell us as SOON as you find out!!! How exciting! Cats are all different, as far as being loving or outgoing, etc. but when a cat chooses you, it's pretty special.

Last nigh we discovered couple of things..another one we discovered this morning...ok....here it is....
Otsi was taken when my boyfriend came to pick him up- they said that somebody took him at the same day we pass on him....
( I do trust my boyfriend, but going to that shelter tomorrow morning anyways..no hard feelings, BF, but....just to make sure! )

But he brought home a 6 weeks old kitten that was about to be putten asleep because he is very-very little and they think there are somekind of problems with his heart ( his mommy cat had a very very bad infection) and he( my BF) just could not pass on him...yeah I know- you should just see this little baby- his ALL black, I mean even his eyes are black, his claws, his nose- everything...He is soooooo little and sooooo shy- you HAVE to see him- as soon as I will make some pictures I will sure to show him to you ( I already took a couple last night- but did not have time to put on my PC yet)
We did not come up with the name yet- but I am about to go and check out some websites for pet names! Since he brought him home baby did not go to the bathroom- we watch him very very closely and he felt asleep on my bf jacket in a bathroom floor ( next to his litter box) so I am still watching him for any signs of beeing sick- but he eats like a crazy ( wet kitten food they gave him at a shelter), runs and then plays, falls and falls a sleep! He is sooooooo cute!!!!! What really amazed me- he made his way UP TO OUR BED this morning- I opened my eyes and heard him mewing- I called him- Come here little baby kitty-kitty-kitty....And here he is- climing on the blanket to the bed like it is nothing- you should see him- he is very very small even for 6 weeks- like he just was born yesterday- but seeeeems soooooooooo strong! And then he JUMPED OFF the bed!!!!! I thought I am gonna have a heart attack- he is sooo little and I was scared this way he'll breake some bones!!! But he did not seems to care! I have no idea why they wanted to put him asleep! They told my bf that he was very last in a litter and after and hour all kittens were born- they really did not think there are more kittens to come! I guess that makes him special, huh? No, really, he is a sweetie... I already told my BF- well it seems you pick yourself one up and I should go pick somebody else- but we decided to go to the vet and see- what special needs this kitty cat has first and if we could afford it.... Still miss little Otsi... But I hope he will be very happy in his new house!
Second thing we dicovered this morning- is that my BF has an allergy ( or he just got sick and think it is allergy). He never had one before- he used to have three cats when he lived with his mom and dad- and never had any problems. But this morning was like hell for him- his nose was running, his throut hurt, his eyes all red and runny.... I hope he will be fine ( + he does have an allergy during the spring blooming, maybe that's it???? )
Anyways..... I am glad we have that little piece of happiness and optimisms wrapped in a black furr.....
He really does make your heart melt- soooo cute....
Now I have so many things to do- when we left today I made sure he has planny of food and his water fauntain( yes, we bought THAT thing!!!! ) is running just fine- so he has a fresh water till 3 pm- when my BF will get home. We also left him a little alarm clock with FM on- so he can enjoy some TUNES!!!! there is cozy BF's jacket and litter box and a HUUUUUGE HUUUGE room all for his own little pleasures to run around and play ( it is a room where I put my make up on and big enough for me to sit and stand- and probably make one step forward and back but for that little baby it is HUGE! I am telling you he is soooooo small!!!!!) When we left baby was playing with his own back paws- and you should see that! he was laying on a back and biting his own paws, rolling all over places, make his paws "play" with him!!!!!! Also he was trying to bite my fingers and toefingers today- so I assume- it is lack of motherhood and brotherhood if I could say so ( I've read that if kitten has been removed from his mother and sisters and brothers too earlie- he will try to bite- cause he thinks WE are cats too and that is the only way to play!!!!!Am I right?)- so I already set up some rules- NO BITING!
Sorry for the long post, guys and thank you for beeing soooo helpful! )))))

I forgot to add that they have told us the kitty need a speacial care- but my BF is Russian and he did not really get what it was, he just was trying to save little babe, they've told me it is not that serious, so we are going to find out today if there is something wrong with him.

Oh, he sounds so cute! I'm training my six-week-old kittens not to bite humans by using a sock on my hand so they can still play, but not learn bad habits.

Hope your BF doesn't have an allergy - by the way, I have a couple people here that DO, and sore throat USUALLY isn't one of the symptoms. Let us know what you name him. I read a really cute black cat name on this board but I can't remember it right now.

Thank you for the advice on a training- I will do so! I really really hope that it is not allergy, but anyways I know there is a ways to control it, I just don't get it- the kitten is sooooo little- how can you have so bad condition from such a little baby cuased the allergy????!!!!
BY the way- your kittens are soooooo cute!

Kitty did not go to the bathroom since last night!!!!!!!!!!! remember I've told you we watched him very closely last night and today as well- but he had no intention to urinate or do that stinky thing at all- is it OK? what should we do?
PS: I know there are some threads probably about that in health and nutrition topics- could you point me into the right direction please?

Shady sounds like a great name!!
I hope he doing well. What did the shelter say to feed him? Since he is so young and possibly a bit frail it might be a good idea to ask around for ideas in the nutrition forum if the shelter didnt give you much help. I'm sure you have it all sorted.
goodluck with your cute new baby!!

What a dear little guy! He is sooooo sweet. His face looks a bit like a baby bear - I'd call him Bear if he were mine.

Shelter did give us some info- and they also gave us a can of kitten food ( Yams? don't remeber exactly, since I am @ work now! )
But he does look like a little bear!
