So, one of my husband's co-workers found a baby kitten in the middle of the road on his way to work today!
There weren't any other cats or people around that she might belong to, no ID, and there were a couple big birds circling around her so husband's co-worker picked her up and brought her to work. He can't take her home, so he started asking everyone in the office if anyone else wanted her.
So we might take her!
Here's the IM between my husband and I...
Me: Are you gonna bring her home? XD
Husband: Well, maybe. I thought I should ask for your opinion first. X-D
Me: I think you know my opinion. XD But my judgement is not always clear with kitties. It's more like "SQUEEEEEEEEE KITTEN"
Husband: Mine neither. X-D I wasn't /quite/ ready to go looking for one, but since there's an abandoned baby who needs a home...
Me: Yeah, I agree...if someone else wants her, then that's cool, but if nobody claims her by the end of the day, you can bring her home.
We wanted to get a new kitten after moving into our new house, although we've only been moved a bit over 2 weeks and haven't even completely unpacked yet, so we were gonna wait a little while. Supposedly she's all black with a brown splotch on her chest, very fuzzy, and very friendly and playful. We're barely settled into the new house, but we already have 2 cats so we don't really need to go out and get much (except kitten-specific food.)
I've never introduced a new kitten to older cats. One of our cats is super-friendly and loves everyone (including every animal he's ever encountered) so I'm not worried about him...but the other one can be kind of a brat sometimes. I'm sure she will not be nearly as accommodating as our older boy. Anyone have any suggestions as to how to make the transition easier for both baby and older girl? We have plenty of space in the house including 2 empty spare bedrooms...should we separate them?
