I'm a new mama! My friend Michael rescued a baby kitten that had fallen into the opening of a crawl space under the house next to his office. He kept hearing cat sounds for a couple days but he thought the mother cat would come looking for a kitten. This morning Michael talked to the owner of the house who asked him to check on it. Michael found a tiny gray kitten and gave it to the guy at the house. The homeowner was going to make some calls to see if he could find a home for the kitten. In the meantime, I was meeting with Michael catch up on old times and discuss a business deal. He asked my if I wanted a kitten and I told him I'd take a look. BIG MISTAKE! I fell in love with the guy 'Gus' and took him to the vet to be checked out b4 I take him home to OH. As far as can be told, he's in good shape except for being very hungry and a bit dehydrated. He's too small for other tests (FELV & Distemper).

Gus weights 15 ounces and is 1 month old. He's not fully weaned (he tries to suckle on my shirt) but he can drink liquids from a shallow bowl and eat canned cat food. (Yeah, hopefully I won't have to bottle feed him as cats generally don't get weaned until about 12 weeks)

OJ wasn't thrilled when I brought Gus home. He went & hid in the closet for several hours, but is now out and about but still not sure about the noisy little creature in the bathroom. (have to keep them separated for a while until they get used to each other and Gus is so small he could easily get lost ).

Thanks Poohzee. Big brother OJ isn't sure about the kitten yet. (I changed his name from Gus to Bandit because of those cute little stripes on his face) OJ keeps his distance because he's afraid of him (OJ was bullied by other cats in the past. My friend Vickie thinks OJ's neurotic :bigsarc: ) But yesterday OJ went running into the bathroom, stopped about a foot away from Bandit, and dropped one of his toy balls on the floor b4 making a mad dash out the bathroom door. It was sweet of him to share a toy with his new baby brother. :bigtup: With a little time I think they will be friends. After all, how can you be afraid of something that wobbles and bounces when it runs up to you? :emot143:

It sounds like the bonding is already getting started. I was looking at the picture of the kitten and it almost looks as though he has the extra little "thumb" toe. He really is a cute little guy.

Now that they are spending more time together, OJ has a huge impact on Bandit. Bandit tries to emulate OJ's actions and behavior. That part is great since OJ has such wonderful house-cat manners. Oh the other hand, OJ is such a neat-nic about some things. He will come get me as soon as he is finished doing #2 in his litter box. He wants me to clean his box right away because "it's smelly". I also found out that it's not acceptable for them to drink out of the same water bowl. Each cat needs his own. The prospect of eing up with tow anal neat-nic cats on my hands is SCARY!

Bandit is so cute. I really do hope OJ and him will be close to each other.

Wow, I can't believe how different he looks in the new picture. He really is settling in. They are both handsome boys.

Thanks. OJ started wrestling with him a couple nights ago. Mostly so OJ could teach him how to clean himself. OJ laid on him to hold him down and then proceeded to give him a bath. Apparently OJ didn't think my cleaning him up was sufficient. (Bandit did leave a skid mark on OJ's favorite pillow) Anyway, I caught them curled up sleeping together yesterday afternoon so I'm pretty sure all is well between them.

Bandit just got back from the vet. He's got his first round of vaccinations and got his blood tests done. (he was too little to get blood from last month) He is Distemper and Feline Leukemia negative and flea free. He has gone from 16oz to 2lbs 14oz.

Glad Bandit is doing so good. He looks so grown up and well behaved in that photo.

He's still a little pip-squeak but he is pretty well behaved for his age. Just wait 'till he get to 5lbs....HE GETS FIXED!

Wow, I never knew there was a weight requirement for getting fixed. The vets here go by age. 5 mos for females and 7 mos for the males.

I suspect the weight requirement is because of the anesthesia.
