Baby Kitty


Baby Kitty, originally uploaded by A!ison.

This is my Baby Kitty. I got her at a cat show from a lady who said she needed a home with no kids and an owner with lots of patience. That should have been a red flag, right? But she was so cute curled up in a little ball in the farthest corner of the cage. It was love at first site and I took her home right then and there.

By Day 2 she had already bitten me so I gave her the name Tyson in honor of the ultimate biter, Mike Tyson. I met my husband 6 months later who thought the name Tyson was ridiculous. She was a GIRL for crying out loud! So I told him to come up with a name. He never did. And since Tyson was out of the question, we continued to call her Baby Kitty. It stuck so the rest is history.

She doesn't bite so much any more but still manages to hiss at every visitor that walks through our door. And the older she gets, the needy-er she becomes. But I still love her all the same.

This picture shows what her and I did today. Isn't this the epitome of fluffy comfort?

Awww baby kitty! When I read this post I heard Kelley's voice in my head saying it like a little crazed baby.

Isn't it funny how we love cats when they can be so nasty to us, but I think it's b/c of moments like cuddling on a cold day :)
