Well, my new kitten story starts with a tragedy...A mother feral made a nest in the hayfield...needless to say, last month, when the hay was cut, she ran off and left the kittens. I was able to save one of them, he had his tail cut off, but no other cuts. So, I've been bottle feeding and caring for him. He is doing much better and the tail has healed. After he chewed the end of the bottle off, it was time for moisten kitten food.
I had forgotten how many scratches you get with a new kitten. ...Anything and everything becomes a toy. He plays so hard and then passes out. :laugh
Miss Chloe is not thrilled with him and I have him in his own room. :kitty I've been slowly letting her see him and will probably start the introductions later.
He is such a little sweetheart and purrs and wants to be right beside me all the time. So unlike Chloe, who won't let you pet her unless she wants it. I haven't named him yet or should I say he hasn't named himself. Wish me luck.
Sounds like you got him early enough that he's not feral himself. What a sad story, though. May we make name suggestions? :laugh Here's one - Milagro... it means "miracle".
I like Milagro Gutmutter He is a little miracle. :) My avatar is a picture of him about a week after the accident. His eyes were still blue and have now changed to a golden color.
And he can have nicknames. Nothing fancy you know. Bob, Stubby, Shorty...oh, and Lucky. :lol
Gutmutter, in case you are interested, Minerva's color is patched tabby, also called Torbie. If she was white with spots in the patterns she has now, it would be called patched tabby and white, or Tabico. :nerd
Well, thank you queenb! Learn something new every day. I did a google image search and found a lot of different things claiming those titles, quite a few similar to my Minerva, but none of them half as cute (proud mother talking).

Sorry to double-post, but someone just sent me this IKEA commercial.
Gut, she is truly precious and snugglable! I am fighting the urge to get another kitten, but I just can't do 5. They are just bottomless pits, and pooping professionals....and my 4 are enough, but I'm still looking and cooing!
He is adorable!!!!!!! Oh, the poor baby! I hope you're giving him lots of love! Look at those legs and those ears!
