Rico, AKA The Real Slim Shady

Post by gbste on Thu Jun 27, 2013 7:28 pm

This little guy showed up in a back yard yesterday.  He wouldn't leave, and he wouldn't stop hollering, so I ended up getting a phone call.  I went over and picked him up.  He's about 9 weeks old, very thin, but otherwise active and healthy.  He does NOT like to be penned up, but that's necessary until we know for sure he's not going to give any crud to Bobby or Cosette.  He has quite the set of lungs on him, and he keeps spilling his water all over everything, so I need to give him a drink every couple of hours, I guess.  He's named after Enrico Caruso.

Greetings, Caruso! You are most welcome!

My cat Weezer, lifelong denizen of this board, is beginning to act just like this kitten. At 19 she is strong and relatively healthy, still plays occasionally (and maniacally!) with her rattle mice, but is thinner than she used to be. Her water bowl lives in the bathtub because she will happily splash water everywhere. And her latest thing is to pace the house, yowling at the top of her lungs. She generally shuts up once I call back to her, but it tries my patience when this "call & response" takes place at 2 am!

He looks so precious, he looks like he could pick up signals from another galaxy with those
ears.

Suzzz, Ascot became very vocal like Weezer in the final years of his life. It's sympton of
feline demintia.

Rico has finally fallen asleep. He wore himself out, I'm afraid. I've had him out several times for some snuggles, and his water dish is now safe in his kennel. Maybe everyone will be able to sleep tonight.

I hope so. Sleep depravation is not my idea of fun.

He got through the night just fine. He's taken to screaming only when he actually sees us. He's a good eater, and if he seems very insistent, I give him a little snack. He has some catching up to do on his food, but I don't want to give him too much at once. He'd scarf it all down and make himself sick.

Have things calmed down for little Rico? I hope he's discovered that screaming is not necessary. Smile

He's still a talker, but he doesn't holler like he did that first day.

He also likes to get right in any big cat's face and hiss. The big cats aren't impressed.

Haahaa! He is all attitude. How cute! I think he'll be able to hold his own where ever he goes. It's fascinating watching them learn their manners.

Kevin and I are doing a kitten transport on Tuesday, and Rico will go to Look What the Cat Brought In on that day. Cosette and Bobby have come down with ringworm, so they'll have to wait until next time.

I'm hoping somebody will fall in love with the lil guy with attitude. Their life will never be boring after that. Very Happy

He's hissing and growling at Keira as I type. We'll have 10 kitties in our car on Tuesday. Most of the kittens will be doubled/tripled up, but still it's going to be like preloading a clown car to get all the carriers in there. It's just a Honda Civic. Our van died a year ago.

Ha! I can see it now. How many kitties can you shove in the back seat of a Civic?

I have a feeling Rico will end up somewhere in the front seat, so he won't hiss at everyone else the entire trip.

I don't think that being in the front seat would keep him from hissing at the kitties in the back seat.
