I unexpectedly got a new baby today! My sister posted on Facebook that she found a kitten and wanted to know if I could take it. She couldn't because she has a dog who's not cat-friendly. I agreed and picked it up after work.
After I got home, I looked online to see if anyone posted notices of losing a kitten/cat in that area and so far nothing. I'll keep looking for the next few weeks to make sure I didn't steal someone else's bundle of joy.
I was worried about how Squirt would react to it and so far he's fine with it! It looks a lot like my past cat, Twinkle, who I had when Squirt was a kitten so maybe that helped him accept it.
It looks like I'll be naming it Pipsqueak, "Pip" for short. I firmly believe that each animal has its own name and once you get to know it, it's name will be revealed to you. I knew that Squirt was the right name for my current cat even though he was named Trouble when I got him. I was thinking of naming this one Noel (because of finding it near Christmas) or Sylvester (because of pictures my sister posted of it) but on the way home, Pipsqueak suddenly seemed like the right name for him so I've already started calling him that.
Here are pictures of little Pipsqueak that my sister posted on Facebook.
