Look at that little face...

Okay, whoa, you're thinking. This amount of pictures may be excessive. Is this little kitty not the cutest little guy you've ever seen? Can you see how tiny he is?

Here's his story: my boss, also named Jonathan, discovered a litter of kittens had been born outside of his back window, next to the air conditioning unit. There were five kittens, but the mother cat growled whenever he tried to come near and look. A few days later, two of the kitties had died, and there were three left. The next night there was a big storm. So, the mother cat decided to move the remaining three kittens to another place. She never came back for this little guy (we're calling him Sam/Sammy). He will probably be 3 weeks old on Wednesday. He has the key to my heart. I have been helping nurse him and take care of him since Jonathan C. found him. We've taken him to a nearby vet, too, who has inspected him and helped us with instructions on nursing Sammy. We got to watch his eyes open for the first time, and aren't they so blue? He still has to be fed every 3-4 hours, and has started to purr like crazy whenever you cuddle him! He has so much personality!

If anyone is interested in bringing this tiny bundle of joy, I will definitely interview you. Yes, I am very protective of this little angel, and want him to have the best home possible. He will make a marvelous pet. Red, our cat, really likes him, I think. I love the picture of the 2 of them together, because you can see how small Sammy really is. Can you see how fuzzy and cute he is?

  1. Soooo Cute! I would take him home, but I already have 2 cats and my male cat isn't fond of new additions to our family (we've tried once before). Good luck in finding him a home!

  2. HA! Hilarious! I guess that you won't be making personal phone call to me after reading my post. I am glad that there are people like you to take care of kitties like him :) Do you really get up in the middle of the night to feed him? Oh Leslie you may have crossed the line.

  3. kelly, it's not the kitty's fault his mommy abandoned him. If i didn't get up to feed him, who would? He would suffer through no fault of his own. There is no choice here...

  4. Keep him! Keep him! If I can't have him, I want you to have him so I can come gawk at his adorableness.

  5. Oh gosh, you know I'd JUST LOVE TO HAVE HIM if only my husband liked them. I would sneak him in, but I'd be afraid of what he would do to kitty.

  7. Leslie, you make me sound like a monster! Thank you MITZI for being reasonable. I would NEVER leave a child starving through the night, but a kitten? I think that I would just find him a home, probably at your house before I ever got up in the middle of the night. BTW I am soo looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
