We're keeping him!

When we rescued the kitty, our original plan was to hold onto him until someone else could take him.  Well, on Monday when DTTF told me he had talked to a friend who agreed to take him, I cried.  In fact, I bawled a couple of times.  Finally DTTF told me that if I really wanted to keep him, we could.

 

So I thought about it, weighed my heart against my head, and talked it over with DTTF a bit more.  I love the idea of Tree Faerie growing up with a kitten, and he’s just so adorably fun and full of life.  I know he’s going to need a vet trip or few to get shots and fixed.  He’s going to tear things up and break things.  All in all, I just did not want to give him up.  So, I called our friend back and told her she couldn’t have him.

 

When we decided to keep him, we also decided we needed to come up with a name that we could agree upon.  Because of his big ears, his cuteness, and his feistiness, we settled on Gizmo, named after the Magui in Gremlins

 

Yay!

Gizmo's a good name...we changed our newest addition from Abelard Nightshade to simply Mojo. He's a black with silver tufted ears...it's the meezer in him. His mama is preggers again. Only cat I've ever seen go into heat and get pregnant before she had weaned the last litter.

The boys are getting snipped next Friday ...Yay! No more extra kitties!

What a great story! I just read how you got him. That was SO GREAT of you to go back so many days in a row. I have to say that I still do like the name Sprite. Sprites can be very tricky and mischievous, as you well know.

I'm with CMGD, post some pictures woman! Right away!
