283. Meet Mikey

Tuesday, March 14, 2006

Meet the newest addition to my family, Mikey. He is a seven week old red tabby male that my family brought home from the local animal control today. We first saw him on Saturday morning with his momma and two sisters. They had been brought in together last week. He became available for adoption yesterday, and we were fortunate enough to be able to grab him before another family could.

He's feisty and a bundle of energy already. That kind of surprises us because he just had surgery to have him neutered this morning. When we picked him up at 12:30 this afternoon he was raring to go. My other cat, JJ, seems to be getting along with him fine. JJ wants to play already, but Mikey is still a bit unsure of his surroundings still.

This picture doesn't give you a true sense of how adorable he is because it was taken with my web camera while I was holding him. The little guy wouldn't stay still. I do have a roll with some free shots, so expect better pictures soon.

The kitten business has distracted me from my writing the last week or two, but now that we have found our perfect match and he is home, things should pick back up in no time.

He is a cutie! I am a foster-mom for a FIV+ cat, for a shelter. I am so happy that you were able to get him, and that he now has a good home. I hope that you have many wonderful years with him.

I love my kitties and cant imagine life without them.

he is just too cute! oh man, I want one. but I'm so deathly allergic to cats it's not even funny. still, I'm tempted to just get the shots so I can have one someday.

happy for you.

I paid an investigator to follow you around, and I know what you did last summer. I know that you own a phone sex company, and I know you fucking drive a Honda. He'll spit on your window, and he'll fart in your room at night. Watch out.

Thanks Dawn and Linda!

And anonymous, thanks for the best laugh in awhile. I don't even have a driver's license, much less a car.

The energy of youth - he bounced right back from the clipping!

We want weekly kitten picture updates! He's adorable ;)

AWWWWW!! I love them when they're that little!

We're sitting the grandkitties again - it's amazing how big they get and how fast. Enjoy the baby time and get lots of pictures!

Do you have any openings at your company? I've always wondered if I'd be any good at phone sex...I've been told I have a "sultry" voice...

That's one weird anon. post...
