  •  That Is Kind Of Young In Cat Years (5+ / 0-)

    I get folks want kittens. I like me some kittens. And four, well not like 12. Kind of young. You could have many wonderful years with him.

    •  Yeah, it's a great age, actually (4+ / 0-)

      Past that wild, tear-everything-up stage but still playful. But yeah, people still seem to want kittens. And, I guess the tail thing puts a lot of people off. If I were in WA, I would take him home tomorrow.

      •  Long Story Short (4+ / 0-)

        I lost a cat of mine a few months ago. I don't let my cats outside. One just ran outside one day when I opened the door. I mean just bolted. She never came back. I looked for days and days for her. Put up signs.

        My other cat, her sister is just confused. Still.

        I wouldn't use the word cruel, but I never had a pet until my mid 30s. Friends that did, well always seemed having another like them in the house was nice. I mean another of their kind for lack of a better word.

        My little lady is lost. I can see the personalty change.

      •  We got a kitten because (8+ / 0-)

        my daughter was born into a family with adult cats and she'd never had one before. She wanted a kitten. She was SO put off by the absolute manic kitten energy that they didn't bond for the first several months. The kitten was mine. The cat is now hers. When she is home, the cat is by her side. When she comes home from school, the cat comes running. In future, I'm sure we'll be going with adult cats. There were so many beauties at the shelter when we went to get our kitten, it broke my heart.

        I hope someone looks past Peetey's tail and takes him home. He has such a beautiful, friendly face. And oh, I do love a black and white cat! Thanks for everything you're doing.

    •  If you already have a cat, kittens are (1+ / 0-)

      easier to integrate because the older cats seem more willing to accept them.  I've dealt with both.  

      I am NOT letting my husband see Peetey. We already have 7 cats.  One of the two youngest was so tiny when we got her at 5 weeks from the vet who was fostering her that she felt  more like 3 or 4.  Our two eldest cats adopted her, would carry her like a kitten and cuddle her between them to keep her warm and clean her.

      There was a lot more snarling and hissing when he brought in a mostly-grown (10-12 months) Maine Coon stray, but they eventually made friends.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
