Nope, not a vampire child.
Regular readers are by now aware of the fact that I am like a magnet for lost animals. It seems I can't go a month without finding a creature that needs TLC and for me to find it a home. So, it surely will come as no surprise that this was in the backyard, by the honeysuckle, last night:
It is a female and about 5 or 6 weeks from what I can tell.
She looks fierce, right? Well, actually she isn't hissing, she is mid-meow.
She is such a cutie and, of course, the kids are clamoring to keep her. But, as you all are aware, I have a contentious relationship with my landlord. I mean, that for some inexplicable reason, she hates me. So, I am not sure if the kitten can stay long. But, she is here for now.
Could you resist that little face?
She is up here on my desk as I type and she is fascinated with the computer, the screen, the keyboard...my fingers. Kitten claws- little needles of love.
Tomorrow we are going to walk uptown to get some litter ( a neighbor gave me some for now) and a real litter box (we are using a cardboard box) and more food. Let's hope all goes smooth and there is nothing to blog about.
