Officially introducing you all to Carson!

So... she's still "not staying" but at least now its not a complete lie - I will be moving out at some point and she will be coming with me. So, technically speaking, she's not staying

Her name is Carson. I tried Carsyn but just didn't like the way it looked. I have a weird sort of affection for girls with "boy" names.

And I thought this would be the cute first picture to post as an official member of the family since it looks so much like one of baby Skylar's first pictures



(Skylar)


Big sister got a new collar the other day. I bought one for Carson too but even after putting new holes in it, its still way too big for her. But I realized that Skylar was wearing kitten sized collars! So now at least she has one that fits.



And she's already banned from outside play! My mom let Brody and Skylar out on their long lines to play in the grass and decided to let her wander around too. I wasn't home for that. The other day I was on the deck and almost peed myself lauging so hard when she casually walked THROUGH the holes in the baby gate and let herself down the stairs. She did it again yesterday, and I managed to snap a single picture before she decided it would be more fun to RUN through the yard away from me. So no more outside until she's big enough for a harness!

Hi Carson! I'd have probably stuck with Carsyn and ended up calling her Syn. I think she is an adorable Tortie. I *love* the half/half faced Torties.

Re: Officially introducing you all to Carson!

how long do you think her fur will end up?

I thought Skylar was fluffy enough as a kitten that she wouldn't be completely short haired but not quite medium, and she's pretty much a short haired cat. Carson has some very long wispy hairs but isn't really "fluffy" like a medium or long haried cat would be.

But she does have that super fine hair just behind her ears that I just KNOW will end up matting easily. Any guesses on the coat length?

Re: Officially introducing you all to Carson!

Hhhhmmmm.... Because of her long guard hairs, and how floofy her tail already appears, I'm going to say medium to long hair and not short. I would LOVE to know how she turns out. I think the guard hairs are the key to determining length. She looks about the same as my last long-hair foster-kitty; Mischy.

...and though my Mallie is basically short-hair, she does have random long guard hairs scattered through her coat, mostly over her flanks, but I never knew her as a kitten.
