So, back at the beginning of the summer, a stray cat that our neighbor sorta "adopted" had a kitten. It has lived literally right outside our door all summer. He is adorable.
Well, fall is a-comin', and Baby is getting bigger. He likes to hang out under our parked cars, so I have to locate him before I climb in and start the engine-- he doesn't have the brains to run out from under the car when it fires up.
The neighbor has been on us all summer to adopt the kitten, and we go back and forth and back and forth. We already have a cat (Gulliver), and we love him very much. He is such a snuggly, affectionate, funny little wimp. I fell in love with him four years ago when I first moved here and started my job-- I saw him in PetSmart and HAD to have him. He's perfect for us.
Kitten (Matt calls him Tic-Tac) is cute and all, but I just haven't fallen in love with him that way. He's more stand-offish (well, he's a stray!). I'm reluctant to bring him in because I think he'll beat up my adult cat, who is 3 times his size (I'm serious; Gulliver is a WIMP). I don't want my current sweetie to get sick if we bring in a little stray. I don't want to worry about a kitten chewing on all of our electric cords.
I am hard-hearted and terrible. Proof? I'm trying to say no to this:
