Soooo...... Last week I posted in the health and nutrition forum about my senior cat and someone suggested that maybe he'd like a new friend since his best buddy passed away a couple years ago.
I said that my husband and I had promised each other no more cats but I was sort of weakening and wanting another.
I was warned not to get a kitten because I have young children...
You know how these things go! For years now I've been content with my one old cat. I decide that maybe I'd like another one and BAM!
On Friday my friend and ex coworker found a taped up cardboard box in the ditch by her house while she was out for a walk. Something made her go check it out and she heard faint meowing. She grabbed it and ripped it open and found 4 tiny kittens inside. They aren't even ready to be weaned yet.
They were very lucky to be found by her as she's very much an animal lover and especially cats. So she's raising them right now. They are eating kitten milk out of a saucer and she's trying to introduce them to kitten food. I've been helping her a little here and there and reading up on what she needs to do. (Which was my first mistake.)
There's two cream colored ones with darker points, one black one, and the cutest little fluffy tabby. I tried not to fall in love, I really did. She's keeping one of the creams and the other one found a future home quick. The black one found a home the next day.... The cutest fluffy tabby was the only one left.... Can you see where this is going???
How big of a mistake am I making? I really think we'll be ok. I do have small children but we also have baby gates galore. My kids love animals but I do know that my daughter will need strict supervision and I'm prepared for that. I actually want to keep the kitten separate from the other cat and the dogs for awhile just because he's still so little. I don't have him yet, he's still being weaned and staying with his siblings but I know he'll still be small when we do actually bring him home.
I can't believe this happened so fast!
How could I say no to this sweet little face?!?
His name is Marshall.....
