Introducing our new kitten, Jill

Well my sister called me today and tells me she saved 6 kittens from death this morning... Apparently the previous owner was seen at the park (by my nephew and his friends) drowning his cat and her kittens because he couldn't keep them anymore. He had them in a squirrel trap and was putting them in the lake. The mother sadly was already dead, but my nephew and his friends managed to get the kittens from him after calling the police.


As far as I know the guy was arrested, don't know what is going to happen to him. I think he is mentally challenged or something, I don't know what would make someone think that that was the ONLY way to get rid of their animals...


Anyways, here's some pictures of the little girl that we decided to keep. We've been wanting a cat for a while, but haven't seen any at the local shelter that we could take, because we have dogs, and rats and snakes and turtles, etc that the cat would have to get along with, so a kitten just seemed right and this little girl had a rough start. She's approximately 6 -7 weeks old.


We named her Jill. The color in the first few pics is weird... my camera was on the wrong setting lol.






I'll get some more exciting pictures tomorrow, she's had a rough day and just wants to cuddle up in her blankie and purr.

I know, It's ridiculous. We live in a really small town in the mountains, we get a lot of weirdos out here...


Now to just get my 80 lb 2 year old pit bull to calm down when he sees her lol. He is still a puppy (kind of, well, he acts like one) and he has never been around cats before. He doesn't try to eat her or anything, but I think he thinks she is a toy when I carry her around and he gets really really hyper. She's not afraid of him at all, she doesn't get scared when he's hopping around and whining. It'll just take time, and soon they will be best friends. The dog is great with all my rats, he doesn't bother them at all when they are out on the couch with me. So I'm confident that he will accept the kitten soon as well.


If anyone in southern CA wants a kitten, my sister has 5 more that need good, loving homes!

She found the dog food, haha






Poker (my doggy) is learning to share with the kitty, he's doing really good so far when he is on his leash. I'm teaching him to lay down when the kitty is near. He just wants to play with her, but he plays rough, so he has to learn boundaries first. She walks right up to him and starts playing with his dog tags and then runs away and he wants to chase her and pin her down with his nose, she was covered in drool a few mins ago after he licked her to death lol.

Oh they love the dog food. Just watch out and make sure she doesn't eat to much, it gives them funky poop.

She didn't actually eat any dog food, she couldn't seem to crunch the Canidae in her little baby jaws (lol) so she gave up within 2 minutes. 10 minutes later, though, I go in the other room to see that my dog ate all of her food off the counter... haha. Gonna have to find a higher spot.

They seems to like each others food more than their own. One of my dogs Kiwi even sneaks down stairs at night to eat the cats food.

Poor little guys, that owner was sick. Those kittens looks so frightened.
