That's right, I lied.

Cayman didn't REALLY follow me home. (But you knew that, right?) A couple of days ago I was innocently purchasing a bag of cat food at our vet clinic when I noticed five little kittens behind the counter. The clinic accepts "rescued" cats, checks them over and then gives them away to good homes. I had a feeling that Scott's reluctance to bring home a new kitten would melt away as soon as he saw this brood. I ran to the car and dragged Scott into the clinic. After about twenty minutes of handling the kittens, Scott made his choice. Basically, Cayman came free with a bag of cat food.

Here's the little bugger now, doing a very poor job of making friends with Molly:

Undeterred by several open-pawed swats to the face, Cayman tried the same approach with Trooper:

And while I'm on the topic of pets (when am I not?), I thought I would share with you a couple of images of Max, the pug who has been wreaking havoc on our floors and our olfactory organs:

Last but not least, here is a photo of Max sleeping on the sofa with his leg down the back of my jeans.

Now that's what I call a hind leg.

Aw great pics! What is he, about 4-5 months old? Soooo cute. I love the backstory too. Technically, he didn't "follow" you home but you still got picked!

Cayman is just 10 weeks old, and allllll kitten.

I didn't know that, I am so gullable.

The nuns at my old Catholic school said it was a sin to lie, but they were psychotics, so who gives a damn what they think?

Nice kitty.

So when do you get the pug outta there?

Calamity Jen said...

In about 97-and-a-half hours. Not that I'm counting.

More cute kitty and pet photos please!!! :-)
Hope you're having a great summer and your house has returned to normal since the flood and Scott's day at the hospital.

Totally cute menagerie.... Are you getting any sleep or is the wee'bit of a kitten engaging in nocturnal nonsense and play?
