Default Guest Cat & Kitten

We met Guest Cat's kitten tonight! We've seen her coming and going
from a storage building in the neighborhood, and tonight we could see
her out in front of the building with a kitten. I walked down there
and sat with her a bit, but the kitten had fled back inside when it
saw me coming. Guest Cat followed me back to our house for a snack
and some petting, then I followed her back to the shed. I explained
that I'd like to meet her kitten, as I'd only had glimpses of him at a
distance. She trilled until he came out.

If I didn't *know* she had this kitten two weeks ago today, I'd have
guessed he was probably four weeks old. He's *huge* for his age and
very well developed, but he does have that tiny-kitten wobble. I sat
in the wet grass for an hour, watching him totter around and pounce on
Guest Cat's tail and bap at his shadow on the shed door. When Guest
Cat washed him, he tried to wrestle her head. Guest Kitten is a
little tabby with a round little belly and a sweet stripey little
face, and is unbelievably adorable. Frequently he'd look up and once
again notice Big Scary Me and run back into the shed, but Guest Cat
would call him out again.

Later on, I spotted them outside again and DH walked down there with
me. I have spent more time with Guest Cat and she has bonded more to
me, so DH was afraid he might not get to see the kitten, but she
called her baby out to meet him too. He was thrilled. DH, however,
is even bigger and scarier than I am, so the kitten stayed close to
the hole in the door, and we didn't stay long. We still don't know
whose storage building this is; maybe we'll find out when they call
the police on the loons who keep hanging around their building.

As there is only one kitten, that certainly simplifies the issue of
trying to find homes for the babies. We'd love to have Guest Cat and
Guest Kitten both, if they will have us. Of course, this means that
now we have to come up with *two* names. Sigh. :-D

Aaaww, that's lovely! She really trusts you, or she wouldn't have introduced
her kitten to you. So sweet.

Do you have a toy on a loooonng stick you can take with?


Or, if you have an old fishing pole, tie on a feather or something.

No fishing poles, but a toy on a stick has facilitated considerable
progress. See the "Tallulah" thread! :-)
