Midnight Monday Kitten Edition
Hello, Very Big Human! Would you like to play with me?
Hey! Get off my floor, Big Strange Kitty! GRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Hey! Get away from my food, Big Old Kitty! GRRRRRRRRRR!
Hey! Get away from my toy, Big Strange Kitty! GRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Boy, guarding my stuff is gonna be tough here! Better practice my GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
This? This is a Love Bug! I got to rub his belly less than 24 hrs after he got home. I can touch his paws. I can touch his tail. But Bast help the *kitty* who comes near his food or his toy!
He was clearly socialized by someone as a wee kitten. And just as clearly learned he had to defend his food and his stuff from other cats at some point (he was found alone and fending for himself in a rural area. Nothing else was known). I just wish I could figure out how old he is. File says 7 months. He certainly has a pretty grown up face.
And he's pretty big too.
But it looks like his eyes are still changing colour, which usually happens by about 4 months.
And his baby fangs are just being replaced now. (that top one wasn't even visible yesterday morning, and hadn't broken skin yesterday afternoon. Yesterday evening, however....), which usually happens between 4-6 months.
Well, however old he is, he sure has one fat, happy little belly!
