We brought home a new baby kitty yesterday, only about 7 weeks old, just weaned and on dry food. Luckily she's a little scrapper, brave and super playful, so there was only about an hour of her being insecure and scared before she loosened up and started exploring. Now today she's all over the place playing with everything and bouncing around the boys like an excited puppy LOL. She's decided to bond with our 5yr old and spent the whole night sleeping all snuggled with him in his bed *we tested it by bringing her out to the food and kitty pan a few times and she went straight back to him each time*
She's using the kitty pan fine, eating her kitten chow and drinking no problem, she's even already gotten the layout of the whole house down pretty well. The ONLY problem is that since she's such a little toughie she's being belligerent with our 2yr old kitty Lilly. Poor Lilly is such a pacifist that she slinks away all sad every time the kitten growls and hisses at her. She's very curious about the baby and keeps trying to go and sniff and groom her *she's got a good mothering instinct* but little Melody's having nothing to do with it LOL.
Here's hoping they'll grow close quickly and all the hissing will stop in a day or two.
This is how she first fell asleep last night :)
