Cat blogging

Yes, I'm a dog person, but today I have some kitty news! One or two folks may recall that last winter our office cat, Grisabella, presented us with five kittens. The kittens grew up, were socialized, and adopted. Grisi was spayed. We thought we were out of the kitty business until one morning last week when one of my co-workers heard a peep from the weeds near the patio...and found a tiny black and white kitten with the longest whiskers we'd ever seen. We think it's a boy. He can't be more than four or five weeks old, and he apparently was out there all by himself.

This is a happy, friendly little guy, but he appears to have some partial paralysis of his back legs and tail. But he gets around all right, takes care of kitty business without difficulty, and doesn't appear to be in pain. My co-worker D., who fostered Grisi's kittens, has taken him home for now. Does anyone have any experience with special needs kitties? This one will be a good companion for an all-adult household. I wish I could take him home, but unfortunately neither the Queen nor the Scientist would be amused....

Oh I so wish I could take him but cannot because of the apartment. Those kitties must have left little hobo signs for future kitties!!

I live too far away and our two older "ladies" would not tolerate a young'un. Dadgumit. He sounds like a cutie!

The partial paralysis might just be temporary, if it was from a spider bite or something like that.

I'm grateful that D. took the little sweetheart home.

I don't know anything about special needs kitties. I think all kitties have special needs somehow.

Keep us updated on his life, ok?

(I am working on those questions~finally have a chance to take a breath.)

Hope he finds a good home.

I could hardly believe my eyes when I read the title of your post! Cats? From zorra???

All is now clear, however. I hope the little guy finds a good home. Not yours, though!

Ohhhh.... how sweet of D! I wouldn't be able to help a kitty myself because of the allergies, but I'm thankful for those who do!

Ms. Parson said four stray cats and three stray dogs was enough and for me not to talk to you.

Parson, if you come all the way to Texas for a stray, you'd better come see me while you're here!

Zorra, tell Amie that her interview questions are up over at my blog!
