Here is our new kitten, with my hand for scale. Sorry for the grainy image. Silly camera phone.|
He actually looks bigger than he is in that picture. He doesn't have a name yet. We're probably going to stick with the Tolkien theme we had from Mirkwood. Isengard, Fangorn, Thorin, and Sauron are all possibilities. Maybe not Sauron.
We got him yesterday from Animal Control down in Dayville. It was very hard to come home with just one animal - they had so many that needed homes, including many well-behaved adult cats. This little guy is skin and bones right now. He was really angry on the way home from the shelter, but he's pretty happy now that he has so much room to run around in.
Mirkwood isn't 100% on the little guy just yet, but he'll come around. New kitty is still figuring out how to do things like drink water out of a bowl without shoving his nose into it (and thus sneezing) and how to not run into large white objects like the tub and the washing machine.
