If your old mommy really loved you, she’d pay the ransom

Kitty still harbors doubts about us, even when he's letting me pat him.
He'll purr like crazy, and then turn around and stare at me.
I think he's noticed I'm not Patricia.
But I am working hard to become an acceptable substitute.

He's in one of his three refuges.
There's behind the toilet, now improved by a considerable amount of kitty litter.
Kitten is an enthusiastic burier of things.
There's in the shelf where the towels normally live.
Towels now live in the laundry room, because kitty needs a fortress.
And there's this, the bottom shelf behind the door.

Kitty's moustache is seriously lopsided.
But he does, really, have lovely round eyes.
And he is desperately soft and glossy.
I will try to get a better picture when he next is feeling more tame than cautious.

He still hisses at you when he feels pressured.
But then he'll notice that you have a hand, and he'll start rubbing against it and purring.
And teething, hard.
And he seriously likes words that begin with Bs.
So we are calling him baby boy, and baubau, and Mister B, and other things that may yet turn into a name.

He's going to the vet Tuesday morning for check up.

  2. Oh, what a cutie! He does look very glossy and soft like Maddie. We should start a tuxedo kitty club on Vox! :)I'm sure he'll adjust. Whenever we move, Madeline is hissy and cautious for a little while.

  4. Awwww! =) He's so cute! (Yeah, I sound like Carlisa right there, but that was my first reaction)It's so funny that he likes B words

  5. Beautiful bo-bo binky cat. (I tried to make "cat" start with "b", but I just couldn't do it.) I love his little mustache. Looks like he tried to paste on a fake one, and missed.
    He'll tame eventually. He's showing good signs. (I don't have any words of advice, other than keep at it.) My Geordie's kittens were very wild and hissy, but after we got them out of the place George had hidden them, and started feeding them, they came around. For a while they wouldn't have anything to do with us, and then suddenly one day they were happy-to-see-ya lovey cats. (I think they figured out where the crunchies and gooshyfood were coming from…)
    Positive thoughts. He's a sweetie-boy.

  6. Very adorable, I'm sure he'll warm up quickly! Inspector Clouseau would approve of his moustache, I think! Excellent disguise.

  7. We just had another cuddle session.This time he let me come and go without having to go through hissies each time, so things are getting better.When he drinks water he purrs and makes little biscuit paws beside the bowl.Oh, and he teethed on my big toe.

  8. Awwwwww! Bless him – he is lovely! How about Bernard, Bertram, Boris, Bert or Brian? (Sorry, I have a thing about old fashioned human names for animals – a friend had a cat named Barbara which I thought was wonderful.)

  23. Been out of circulation for a few days – and find not only has kitty been introduced to the world but he has a name! What a cute little fella – love the misstache (as I suppose a misplaced moustache would be called).Tuxedo cat group? Now that's a good idea!
