Akiko

Post by CallaLily » Sat Jun 20, 2015 12:42 pm

I never thought I'd be making a post like this but we got another cat. Well, a kitten. Her mother was part of a large colony of feral cats at a farm where my MIL sometimes keeps a few of her horses. They were catching them to get them fixed and mom got caught and hauled off before they realized there were kittens. Because of this, at just 4 weeks Akiko was without her mama. :( So she came to us much younger then kittens should be adopted out. She's around 7-8 weeks now and doing really well. I forgot how much fun kittens are! My other kitties weren't too pleased but they're adjusting.

I didn't even notice. It does look like a sort of lopsided heart. :D

I saw the tittle and I'm like "Akiko? She doesn't have an.. what did they bring home now?!"

Only the most cute kitten ever! :hearts: Congrats. She is so adorable, and that heart is perfect! She was so young when you got her, did you have to bottle feed her at all?

:lol: :oops:

When we brought her home they had her fully on canned food with formula mixed in, so we just continued with that. I think she was at or around 5 weeks when she came home. At first she wasn't cleaning herself very well and I had to help. She's gotten much better about it.

Edit to add: now she's completely on just canned food.

Her tail is so unique! I don't think I've ever seen that banding before.

A couple of Akiko tonight.

This one is just before the bum wiggle she does before she pounces.

She's a mess. She and my other cat, Chico, seem to have bonded a bit. They play together and sleep near each other. I think it really does Chico good, he seemed very bored before even with lots of attention from us. Our other kitty, Spiderman, is snooty. :lol:

The butt wiggle is the best! All 3 of mine do it as they prepare to pounce on each other and it's so freaking cute
