Meet Alex!! :bigsmile: We have no idea what he is. They think he's just shy of five months, and he's a completely adorable bundle of energy ::)


We've been talking about getting a fourth cat but we'd been holding off.

I was visiting a friend in NYC last Saturday and DH called me to say that he was at Petsmart and they were having a sale on litter, and that they had some cats in from a local shelter and the littlest one was a total cuddlebug ::)

I said that's nice, and to take some photos, and to absolutely not come home with a cat because we're not fully settled in yet, our cats are still adjusting to having moved across the country, we might never see our ex-stray Mina again, and that I wanted an older cat anyway, when we were ready...

He said that he'd promised the volunteers that he'd bring me in tomorrow so we should at least go meet him.

We brought him home Sunday afternoon :bigsmile:


I was right about Mina, she wants nothing to do with him! She adjusted okay to living with Gretta and Garett though and they all cuddle together so we think she'll be okay with a bit more time. Garett's coming 'round - they chase foil balls together, though he has no patience for the little guy playing catch with his tail (you'd think at 4lbs he'd have the sense not to antagonize the 15pounder - apparently not! :cheeky: ). Yesterday Gretta curled up with him and groomed him to sleep :love: :love: :love: I was really worried that our three would change personalities but so far they seem just fine with *us*, and alone with each other, so I think we're okay on that front!

Ooo I'm a sucker for black and white kitties! (well, sucker for kitties in general!) He's too cute, your Alex! Gretta looks like my Britta. 'Cept Britta in 7 months still hasn't accepted Chucknorris and Opilio..Gretta is more accepting!

Oh he is gorgeous Yssie! We only have the one boy, and would love to get him a sister, but don't know how he would handle it. Seeing those two together makes me rethink!

Thank you, everyone!!! I love him to bits already ::)


Tuxedo - that's it exactly!

That last pic is right before Gretta climbed right on top of him and settled in (and she's 12lbs!!)


Packy - Gretta was none too happy at first, her maternal instict apparently came out finally! Garett tolerates him now, Mina is quite obviously displeased with the situation :sick: I suppose if there's hope for Mina there's hope for Britta!

Glam - I think it definitely depends on the cats! Gretta is generally very laid-back - she was first to accept her new home as a kitten, first to accept Mina, first to recover from the move, so it's not really a surprise. And what Gretta does Garett eventually follows! If Mina doesn't come to terms with him we'll have to re-introduce I think, I'm hoping it won't come to that because neither of us is really home enough!

What a handsome fella, Yssie! In my experience, these things have a way of working themselves out. Whenever I've brought a new cat/kitten in, I have about a 2 or 3 day period of saying "what have I done?!!!" because it upsets the delicate balance that is my household. However, after a couple of days, everyone seems to settle down and figure out how they fit in the new dynamic. And by that time, I wonder how I ever got along without the new one! Looks like Alex is going to be right at home.

I hope Mina starts to come around soon! I dunno about Britta..she's been Queen B for so long..she snarls and just boxes the crap out of them..and they purposely stalk her so it's kinda funny to watch.

Zoe, we do! Longhaired, kind of a white w/orange shimmery fur.. Big ole tomcat..and lazy. He's not into kickin ass like his namesake.

I love kitties! :appl:

Your torty reminds me of our Sandy, who passed away last year. She was a sweetie.

I love the snuggle bugs photos! Awwww!
