It happened!

Wow. What a whirlwind. I had contacted this lady about a kitten she had posted. And I didn't hear back from her for two days, so I figured it wasn't meant to be or someone else had adopted him. Well she called me last night and she was like you can adopt him if I can bring him right now. So I said yes, never having met him before. Just talking to her she seemed a little unstable and ahe kept telling me that he didn't need to be fixed because he was a male and couldn't get pregnant. I was like well I can't leave him in that situation.

So long story short. My "tentative inquiry" turned into a solid commitment in about ten seconds and now I have a second cat.

He is shy and out of sorts and absolutely gorgeous. He is about three months old and a blue lynx point. Did I mention he's gorgeous? Agnes is hissing through the door.

He is a beautiful little boy! I am glad that you took him away from that lady, she sounds a little wacky. Don't worry, Agnes will get used to him in no time. Congratulations!

Oh he's gorgeous! Every time I see pictures of a sweet little face like this I keep wondering if I'm sure Leelu wouldn't like a companion. ( I am unfortunately)

He's beautiful!

Just make sure he gets a thorough vet check before you intro him to your other kitten. I've gotten a few pets from weirdos and they tend not to be in the best condition. At the very least he'll need his shots and deworming as well as the check up.

He's super adorable! I'm glad that you adopted him; the fact that his previous owner would assert that a cat doesn't need to be fixed just because it's a male and can't itself get pregnant indicates to me that it's a darn good thing she rehomed him. I'm really bothered by that sort of attitude, and thinking like this, to me, clearly demonstrates that you aren't responsible or mature enough to own a pet (end mini-rant)! Yeah, I know, I'm preaching to the choir.

I'm sure Agnes will get used to the idea of sharing her house eventually. In the meantime, give her lots of love, and do make sure you take librarychick's advice and get the new kitten checked by your vet before you do any face to face introductions.

Lol! It's humorous because I can commiserate. Not that any of my current cats have come from shady, rough looking dudes in grocery store parking lots or anything, but one definitely ends up dealing with some weirdos while doing cat rescue, and I've definitely offered to rehome cats for a couple of the stranger ones in the hopes of preventing the grocery store parking lot, or some similar, scenario.

Thanks! He is a pretty one for sure. That's a great point about the vet, I am trying to get him on on Monday or Tuesday. He doesn't look to badly but I definitely want to get him wormed and tested for FIV and FeLV before I let them together. Poor guy is meowing so sadly up in his safe room. We decided to name him Dexter. I wanted Albus and my husband wanted Bill, so we compromised.

He's gorgeous! Glad you are giving him a loving home. Yes, I would vet him before letting him out.

He is gorgeous. Congratulations. Wonder what would have happened if you couldn't take him right then!
