Despite my plans to WAIT, damn it, on Thursday afternoon I found myself drawn to several shelters, looking to see if any paws reached out and grabbed me.
Gentles, meet Cas*.
He’s four months old, full of mischief, affection, and a remarkably deep and piercing voice, and may well grow up to be a Big Damn Cat, but for now we shall refer to him as CatOfWee. Or, as has occurred, “Lil’ Idjit.”
Â seen with coffee mug and finger puppets for scale
We are currently in the shake-down cruise. Â CatofSize is dubious but not unwilling in this household integration.
He’s not sure about being the Big Brother, but so long as the treats and snuggles keep coming…
I think Pandora (ElderCat as was) would approve. Â Or at least snicker behind her whiskers at Boomer now having to be Elder.
*He is gawky but fierce, with a gravelly meow, and certain behaviors caused an observer to comment that I’d acquired a nerd cat. Â And I realized it was Thursday, and he’d found me in the middle of hellishly hot weather. Â Reader, what else COULD I name him? Â Even though his eyes are olive green, not blue.

Aw, so happy for you and the kitties :-) Any tips on integrating a new cat into a household that already has a cat? My sister’s cat is living here for six weeks, and my cat objects to his presence.
Honestly, for six weeks you may simply need to keep them as separate as possible – that’s about how long a shake-down cruise can last! Cats aren’t natural pack animals, so territory delineation is a big deal to them.
Awww. Very happy that another kitty has come into the household. And yes, Boomer has to be elder now. There is a poetry, there.
Yay for kittehs!
AWWW! He is a cutie! Boomer will take him under his Paw! Best to you all!
Excellent. May they become friends! NerdCat will rock!
He’s got long legs. He may end up puma-sized!
I already have one puma-wannabe, so….
Aww, he’s adorable! He reminds me of my Tybalt. Tyb also had a deep voice and we suspected he was part Siamese.
Welcome Lil’ Idjit!
He’s a cutie. I hope he and CatofSize learn to get along.
