Shop Cat Update

 Today we were able to catch one of the little guys I talked about in my last meet Jay, the new shop cat!  He's been to the vet and gotten a clean bill of health.  The vet figures he's about 4 weeks old and he weighs in at a whopping 1.8 pounds.  He was purring so loudly that the vet couldn't hear his heart.  She thinks that the mother is no longer with the kittens because he was dirty...see that little ring of dirt around his nose?  I brought him home, cleaned him up, did a little shopping and he's now all set up in our office.  I'll head in to check on him tomorrow to make sure he's doing okay.  He is such a sweetheart!

It's tough work being a kitten though, especially one who is captured and then pampered to the point of exhaustion.  He just couldn't stay awake any longer...

Now we hope we can catch his two siblings who are still outside!
