I am getting a new Calico kitten

The pic on the left is an example of a Calico kitten. The kitten I get may not look like the kitten displayed here in this pic.

Sometime tomorrow, a friend is bringing me a kitten.

All I know is that it is a female.

She knows I love animals and that I can use an animal friend.

I have all the stuff for her. I still have to get toys for the little thing.

Maybe I should have a baby shower. I feel like a new mom. haha

all calico's and tortoise shells are females, any rare males are sterile. i had an ad up for a calico kitten, i wanted one.
now since talking to my vet, who is fostering 15 cats/kittens herself not to mention the influx for this time of year that stay at the clinic. she is running a adopt a cat/kitten program. she has convinced me to take an adult cat and i think i will get a kitten too. she has vaccinated and fixed them all, at her expense, and asks only a nominal donation for them. in fact the mums and the black cats kittens, she is willing to almost give away. no one seems to want them.
when will people learn, having an animal is a RESPONSIBILITY!

sorry to run on, but these poor cats will end up being destroyed if they are not adopted, i just hate the thought.

congrats on your new baby steve!

    Awww, I hope you like your new kitten as much as I love mine. I have two little boys, and they are just darling!

    Paper bags, and boxes are the preferred toys. Don't waste too much monwy on store bought stuff.

    Enjoy your baby!

I was not aware that they are all females.

I would always adopt cats who are unwanted, but I can only do so much.

This kitten had a mother who had 6 litters in 3 or 4 yrs. The owners dont care to get it fixed.

    My cats also love those little rings that come on the tops of milk cartons.
    I have a 2 year old black tiger, a 1 year old tan tiger, and a 4 month old calico we just adopted.
    I have a couple hundred pics of them already.
Any cat I had was happy with a rolled up ball of tinfoil or a little dinky thing on the end of a string.

This calico is a beauty. She sticking to me like glue.

I have nothing against black cats.

She follows me around the house and she sleeps besides me in bed too.

I feel like I am a mother cat.

She is very small at the moment, but in another few weeks, she will be very active.

I have a name for this kitten.

CALLIE

It means beautiful.

Thank you !

I was going to name her Xena.....but she is not really a warrior.

I wanted a name that was unusual.....just like my Zoryah.

This kitten is trying to take away my ice cream.

What do I do ?

I am having ice cream and she is climbing all over me to get to it.

Congrats!

I think calicos are the most beautiful of all. Have lots of fun together.



PS - I believe that ice cream is a laxative for cats and dogs...

Steven,

I'm not a big cat person, but I have to admit those calicos are sure a fiery mix.

I like the collection of colors on them.

Let us know when you get some pics of the furball.

I want to take pics, but I had problems with the camera software. I wanted to reinstall it because it is not working right and it wont let me.

I should work on that problem.
