We have a new kitten. :) His name is Nibbler, and he's adorable. See?
We must be insane, but we don't care much. :D
We were at Petsmart about a month ago, and this little cutey was part of the local adoption center's weekly showcase. They have kitties there all the time, but on the weekends they bring in more. We played with him for awhile; he crawled all over us, nommed our fingers, let us give him scritches. We talked about it, but though "we can't have a fourth cat! That's nuts!" So we left Nibbler, thinking someone would adopt him soon. He was too cute to not be adopted!
Imagine our surprise when we came back two weeks later to find him still there! We played with him some more, and one of the volunteers was heavily hinting that Nibbler wanted us to take him home. On a whim I filled out an application (they screen potential adopted which I think is great), while Nibbler watched to make sure I filled it out right, had chillas sign it, and for the next week anxiously waited to hear from them.
Finally we got the call that we were going to be able to take him home. We met his foster mom at a Barnes & Noble and brought him home with us.
We brought him into the house, and Max and Sprite sniffed around the carrier but there was no growling or hissing, so we let Nibbler out after awhile. Smokey, of course, watched from afar, all haughty and whatnot.
Nibbler wandered around the apartment, sniffing and checking things out, with Sprite and Max right behind him. By the end of the evening all three of them were playing. :)
He has been a perfect editition to our family. Nicholas is totally in love with him.
Nibbler has a very weird attraction to water. Not only does he drink it out of their regular bowl, but he'll lick it off of the side of a glass, out of the faucet, and even off of faces and toes! Very strange. The last time Nicholas was with us, Nibbler sat on the edge of the tub while he was taking a bath, and had about a quarter of his tail in the bath water. He didn't even seem to care!
He likes to sleep by nesting in my hair at night, which causing some conflicts since Smokey likes to sleep by my head. But often he'll move around and sleep on Joe's chest, neck, belly, or by his knees. Sometimes he just sits and purrs. His favorite toys are my little elastic pony tail holders and my hair if I hang it in his face.
He's silly and we love him. :) Yay kitties!
