"Boris!"

It won't come as a surprise to anybody that knows me that I went to the shelter today and rescued this little guy! I named him "Boris" and he's about 9 weeks old of pure "ornery".

There aren't any kittens at the shelter right now, so I was surprised to see this little guy. He had been there for 3 days! He's currently in my son's room ("The Land of Dirty Underwear") and having a ball!

I could hear my son crying out "OOOOWW!" as the little guy climbed up the side of his leg. I'm afraid Boris is going to think his name is "Little Shit" pretty soon.

At the risk of needing insulin, I've posted some pictures of my new charge below. Nobody can disagree that he's a photogenic little guy...


Yes, I'm in "tabby heaven"...

After a rather crummy week, I'm high as a kite over this little man.

I'm in love with him already.

I love him! Especially in that last pic where he looks adorably less than impressed

He looks like trouble LOL in the best way ..can't wait to hear how his personality unfolds, he needs a home with kids so he can get into trouble with them. Okay I have to say it lol we see pictures of your daughter and sons but never of your husband, the only thing we get of your husband is an arm here or a leg there lol..

I think Boris needs to beat up a couple of big dogs. OK, so that's kind of a hint.

BTW, I just want to let all the Travis fans know that's he's doing great. Five cats and three dogs: he's in heaven. As long as I don't move the kitchen chairs ...
