I have a new addition....I had sworn off kittens and was considering adopting an adult male from the rescue I work with or keeping one of my fosters, but I put it off partly because I was dealing with ferals and forclosure kitties, and partly because neither of them were "the one".
Then I saw this guy and he was too perfect to pass up. I got him from a rural shelter here in Georgia, he is a 12 week old flame point dsh. We go to the vet in the morning, he hasn't had any vetting yet, not even combo testing, so I'm a little nervous about that, but visually he looks good, just a little thin and lots of flea dirt. It was a bit of an impulse adoption, but I don't regret it. Oh, and he is my first boy cat ever.
His name is Chase but I've been calling him Cheddar Biscuit.
Aww we have a family of strays that look just like him, except they all seem to have the siamese cross-eyes to go along with the beautiful blue. They are the nicest cats I have ever met, I think 3 of the 5 of them have all been taken in by neighbors or friends but there are still at least 2 that come to the door or sleep in the garage on cold nights. Hopefully your new baby is just as special .
He is a sweetie so far. I almost got two, I love the idea of two kittens playing together and he had a littermate there, but I really only wanted him, so hopefully he'll be alright without a playmate his own age.
