- 1.6 lbs;
- covered with fleas, and I'm talking big ones;
- infested with ear mites, and possibly worms (which is actually pretty normal for kittens);
- suffering from an upper respiratory infection;
- very dirty; and
- just 6 weeks old & a little boy
The next day, as I headed over to pick him up, my sister Katie called & said that she was going to adopt him. Yay! This was his first Christmas, and he is such a sweet little baby. He's got one blue eye & one green eye, and the "red eye" effect of a camera flash had an interesting result!
His nose is still stopped up, and so he snorts a lot. He is also still very small (hence the term "Kittlet"). He has a stuffed polar bear toy that he's taken a liking to...it must look like his mama. He sleeps with it and massages it. Anyway, this is a good ending to the story of (yet another) holiday adoption. It's been exactly 5 years since I found my Lucy under very similar circumstances. And she makes me smile everyday.
