I took my early morning walk (next to no traffic to contend with... 4:30 AM), and on the way back, I heard this tiny noise. As I got closer to the
source, I discover this kitten wandering the sidewalk, screaming his head off.
First thing I did was try to grab him. He proceeded to sink his teeth into the meaty part of my hand, right where my thumb muscle is. OW. I finally
yanked my shirt off, gathered his cranky, frightened butt up, and got him home, shirtless and swearing thanks to the holes in my hand, which were now
throbbing. I got him fed- he had enough food for 2 cats, no kidding- he sucked the water out of the bowl in record time, and FINALLY calmed down so he
could be petted and handled properly. Wife says he's about 10 weeks old. So far, the other 2 cats we are the staff of approve, for the most part.
I'm keeping him in a box, since at his size, he can very easily wander off, and get stuck or worse. I do let him out, but under supervision.
I do not appreciate the type of person who more than likely dumped him off in the middle of the night (my walking route takes me by the same areas,
and it was a quiet night- it took me 15 minutes to go past, turn around, and head back). My ex boss did that with MY cat. Dumped him off under a shelf
I had outside by my door, sick, screaming his head off, and then claimed 'he must have walked there'. 10 week old kittens do not have a rep for
taking long walks.
Anyways, we are now +1 cat. The first, FIRST thing out of my 5 year old's mouth, who has been claiming one of our MALE cats is pregnant for months
when she saw the kitten:
"Sabertooth had his baby!!!"
I nearly ended up on the floor.
