Tiruncula said...

Aawww! Look at those kitty toenails! Tell us more!

Sisyphus said...

So cute and tiny! Looks kinda like mine! (BTW, if he _acts_ like mine, he'll eat paper and books.)

How is the little Lycidas, or whatever you will call him (her?).

New Kid on the Hallway said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh! So cute!!

(S/he looks just like Older Cat did at that age!!)

Oh! Sweetie! She looks just like a cat I had before...lost said cat in a break-up (which was sad, but at least I knew that she'd still be loved and well cared-for). What a cute little darling! I want one!

Flavia said...

Thanks, guys! The kitty is a he, and after test-driving a few different names, I think I've settled on one that fits. He's ridiculously friendly and affectionate, and also quite a talker (it remains to be seen whether he settles down once I go to bed, or whether I'll have to invest in some earplugs). I think I've never felt so much spontaneous love for anything in my life. (And Sis, yes: it did strike me that he looks rather like yours!)

The allergies so far don't seem to be much of a problem. He's been all over me all day, and although my eyes got a bit red and itchy when I washed my face, I flushed them out and they're fine now. No sneezing or congestion or other problems to speak of.

Oh, cute! I love the I-am-the-mighty-jungle-cat-stalking posture in the first photo!

Dr. Crazy said...

Sweet, sweet Kitty-Cat!!! (and no man is more reliable than a man-kitty - at least according to my Man-Kitty :) )

very pretty kitty....have fun with him!

MountainLaurel said...

Pretty-pretty kitty-kitty! Brings back memories of when my Jaz was that size (long time ago).

And so useful for dating. I don't know how I ever dated without my baby. She's an excellent judge of character. Once she bit a friend of mine (I thought). Of course I scolded her, but then about a year later said "friend" screwed me out of data on a project we were supposedly doing together. Jaz knew more than I did!

Okay - my Adorability Meter just went over the top! What a cute ball of fluff - I'm so glad you're feeling such spontaneous amor for the newest addition to the fam. He's got you now - you're his person.

life_of_a_fool said...

Yeah! He is adorable!!! I miss the kitten stage. . .You'll have a ton of fun with him!

St. Eph said...

Cat! Fantastic! He's a handsome feller. My fluffy black thing was very chatty as a kitten, quieted down during her middle years, and is getting vocal again as she enters her crone stage. I hope your doesn't keep you up for too much longer with the talking. I also hope you two have a long, happy life together.

Dance said...

Enjoy! I've also got a fluffy black thing. Watch the string--mine chews it up like other animals slurp spaghetti, especially if it has elastic. I used to have two cute strappy tanktaps, until the cat ate the straps.

MaggieMay said...

OMG SO CUTE!!!!!

Flavia said...

Oh, and Sis: now why didn't I think of "Lycidas"? That'd actually be a pretty awesome kitty name. However, although his actual name isn't Miltonic or especially literary, it is indeed trisyllabic (with a disyllabic nickname), and Latinate, and has at least a sort of Early Modern connection. Still trying to figure out an appropriate pseudonym.

And Crazy: that thought had occurred to me, actually. . .

Mademoiselle D said...

Totally rad. I was watching a witch movie with Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock today and in one scene, Nicole Kidman (off topic: why do we never call her Nicole-- always Nicole Kidman) was clutching a black kitty and it looked so adorable. Congrats on the kitty. Meow!

Dr. Virago said...

Kittieeeeeeeeeeeeeee! So cute!

Hilaire said...

OMG!!! I love him!

Prof Mama said...

Adorable!!! I have always wanted a black kitty with green eyes. How precious.

Dr. Mon said...

How cute!!! Ooooh I wanna kitten!!!

Terminal Degree said...

He's ADORABLE! I've never had a kitten--adult cats have always sort of stumbled into my life--but this age looks so cute.

What Now? said...

What a cutie-pie! Congratulations on your expanded household.
