So a week or two later, I was looking at the local classifieds my friend mentioned to see what we could see. Well, that cat ended up being posted on there along with a few other kittens. Most people wanted me to buy their kittens. I decided to just go ahead and give this poor little kitty a chance. I mean, he's wild, but aren't we all a little wild? I called the neighbor and Zach and Riley came with me to pick him up. He's so tiny and so cute! Then he hissed and me, and I was in love.
We quarantined him to our laundry room for a couple of days. Just feeding him and trying to get him used to us. Kurtis got him to eat out of his hand the night I went to the concert. I was so jealous. Animals kind of freak me out a bit. I love them, but I don't know what to do with them. I blame it on the fact that I just didn't grow up with them. I'll figure it out. The next day, Kurtis showed me what he did and he was eating out of my hand too (and the kids'). :) Well, I was getting kind of depressed that I couldn't bond with my kitty and hold him and Kurtis could tell how I was feeling, so Kurtis said, "You know what? I'm just going to pick him up and see what he does."
It wasn't easy getting him out of the dog carrier our neighbors lent to us, but he did it! We are now able to hold our kitten and he doesn't hiss at us any more! I'm so excited. :) We haven't really let the dogs meet him just yet, but I think things are going to be just fine. :)
Kurtis is trying to feed him a small bite of baloney, but he was too nervous to eat at first.
