New Kitty!!

on Sunday, December 16, 2007



Here's my new baby! I picked him up today at the Tri-County Humane Society. He's 4-1/2 months old and very friendly.

I know I said I wanted an older orange cat, but he kind of picked me. The minute I took him out of the cage for a "test drive" he started purring and butted his head into my beard. That did it. Tristram used to do that.

He's got blue eyes, so he has some Siamese in him, and a pink nose. He's cream colored with orange on his ears, tail and the backside of his rear legs. He'll need to be neutered in February.

I brought him into the house and introduced him to Rusty. There was a little low meowing and a couple of hisses at first, but they were running around the house playing about an hour later.

His name is Frank, but that will probably change. I usually let my cats pick their own names. Frank does seem to fit, though. We'll see.

I'm pretty happy! This is my Xmas present to myself.

He's got the look of a scamp about him. I see mischief in his eyes!

And it looks like he picked a good human to live with, so he's obviously quite intelligent.

I hope you all are happy together.

Yay for new kitties! *claps and does the new-kitty dance* That's one lucky feline.

Excellent. I can't wait to meet him. Play "Frank's Wild Years" by Tom Wait's for him. If he likes it, the name sticks.

He looks like trouble. You guys will be great together.

Oh, and thanks for not naming this post, "Hello Kitty."
