I'm a sucker for kittens. - May 25th 2015, 02:44 AM

I was sleeping peacefully this morning even though my nephew was in the living causing a ruckus. He was waiting to be picked up by my brother, his dad. Welp. My brother apparently gets here with a little surprise he found wandering the gutter by himself. A kitten! Mother wakes me up and BAM little tiny kitten. I'm guessing the kitten is about 4-5 weeks old considering it is only almost 17 ounces (a little over 1 pound or about .5 kgs). I made them nice and warm with some blankets in one of our cat carriers so he could wait out until my brother could take me to the pet shop to get formula (he did bring the kitten to me after all). The kitten is seemingly all black right now and their eyes are the typical kitten blue. Though it's fur and eyes will probably change. Now this little kitty has their own little set up in the same cage my other cat had when he was this age. Every three hours for feedings is a little tedious though, but I will adjust!

Here they are!


Comet (the cat I got at this age as well) wants nothing to do with the kitten. He hissed at the smell of the kitten on my hand at first. Toby (the stray that we rescued) is kind of trying to take on a motherly role, in a way. He wanted to lick and clean the kitten, but I wouldn't let him in case the kitten has any contagious illnesses. Though Toby still keeps coming and visiting the cage and looking in. He's currently sleeping atop it.

Name suggestions are welcome! My mom was thinking Skylar since it's gender neutral and I still haven't been able to determine the gender of the kitten. So you can throw boy and girl names at me!

Expect more photos.

Sooooooooo cute!

I have trouble enough naming my own kittens, so I have no suggestions... but I do like Skylar.

So adorable!! I like Dez's suggestion of Chance, and I like Skylar too. I like Salem, from the Teenage Witch.

So name. Much decision. I think I'll decide when I figure out the gender, but you guys can still keep suggesting them. So far I've found that I like Skylar, Salem, Midnight, Luna (if it's a girl), and Binx.

Anyways here's a couple more photos. It's hard to get any because they're at an age where they just want to eat and sleep.




Their eye keeps crusting shut I assume from conjunctivitis and they breathe noisily (which in my experience is a sign of upper respiratory disease), but they will be checked out by a vet pretty soon. I just hope they're not too sickly. Because they're so cute.

We've decided on the name Skylar for now, but y'all can keep up the suggestions because it's not set in stone yet. And my mom thinks they might be a boy! I'm not sure though, I couldn't tell what my other cat's gender was at this age and I sure as hell can't tell what this one is.

OMG what an adorable kitten! :3
Ugh, kittens are my weakness (until they grow up like my cats and just do nothing interesting anymore, haha!).
I have no creativity when coming up for names of cats so I'm going to sit this out- believe me, having a cat named Jim while the other two are named Shadow and Spike is a pretty good explanation.




The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Sorry it's sideways. He's hard to get photos of because he just wants to squirm away.

That kitten is so adorable! Can I have the kitty please? I really like the name Skylar along with the names that everyone else suggested. I have a few ideas but they aren't as good. Ace, Bowtie, Dusky, Pepper, Panther and Silhouette!

On another note, how's your kitty doing now? His eye looks better in the most recent picture you posted so that's good.

It's definitely a boy and he has doubled his weight since my brother brought him to me! He visited the vet for the first time today and got a shot plus some deworming medicine. He also has conjunctivitis which he has eye drops for now, but he may have FIV. FIV is kind of like HIV/AIDS in people, but in cats. It may be a false positive though because he could have gotten the antibodies from his mom, but we'll have to wait about 5 months to get him tested again for it to see if he really has it or if it was just a false positive.

He's such a sweetie, though. He doesn't like to cuddle much yet, but he is super playful. Our vet is conveniently located inside a pet shop, so we picked up some toys for him. He's doing really well though. He loves to eat too. And enjoys digging out his pee filled litter clumps out of his box. I actually have to sweep his cage out daily with a dust pan and mini broom he gets so much litter everywhere.

Thanks for all the name suggestions, guys! I'll be sure to get some more pictures soon because he has grown so much.
