The last 72 hours have been a whirlwind. Our family unexpectedly grew a little bit with this adorable little guy. After hearing a cry in the woods for two days, I found this little guy alone and scared in the rain. I left it where I found it for a few hours to make sure it's mama wasn't coming back. I knew it was going to storm that night and I couldn't bare it any longer, and it was still out there crying non stop. No other kitties were to be found, or any trace of a mama. I was hesitant to take it, but Ive already had one kitty die b/c I didn't find it soon enough, so I didn't take a chance on this little fella.
Yesterday he took his first car ride to the vet to get dewormed and flea + mite treatment. He's too little for shots just yet, but the vet gave him a good examination and we think he is healthy as can be. For the past 13+ years I have not allowed myself to get a kitten b/c Bella hates other cats. So needless to say, this hasn't been an easy transition. Bella is pissed. But I'm hoping over time this will change. And really only time will tell.
This little boy is a mama's boy, and he definitely things I'm his mama. All he wants to do is be right up on my neck, coddling, suckling, purring, rubbing, kissing... He is a LOVER BOY to the max. Cries when I'm not by his side, and instantly purrs the second I walk in the door. Screams until he is up on my neck, and then just melts, purrs and rubs all over my face. The second I put him down, he screams. MAMAS BOY. It's been a delicate balance trying to be there for him around the clock, and be there to reassure Bella she is still my baby too.
I go on vacation very soon and James will be home alone with all this crazyness. I hope he transitions a bit more before that!!! I'm a little worried honestly. But gosh he is soooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am just in love. Madly.
And his little name is Banjo Juniper. <3 He is a lover. A mama's boy. So curious. Loves to play, but gets easily scared. A ferocious eater. And an even more ferocious cuddler. Like the biggest, sweetest, most in your face cuddles youve ever seen. Heart Breaker.
