This makes my life better.

(I have a terribly weakness for bright-eyed, impish kittens (and baby goats, but most folks don't post pics of those))

We got her today from the Humane Society. She is SO SWEET. Getting used to the place now, and waking up because it's nighttime, and running around everywhere.

so adorable. I wish I could have cats, but they make me sick. Not allergic or any thing. They carry a bacteria that I easily catch...that humans aren't known for catching. o.O

Humans aren't known for catching it. Are you *positive* you aren't a random demon from some hell dimension? *peers intently*

Now my cover has been blown!

So THAT'S why you don't want a portal to hell opening up! You didn't want your demon buddies coming over to say hi and ruining your cover!

I gather she had an unadorable explosion lately, though.
Mon, 09/28/2009 - 6:50pm
Indeed. But seeing as you're my only Intimate Historian facebook friend, no one else would know about it.
I was sitting there on the couch with the kitty next to me, and she was calm and peaceful, and suddenly I looked up from my laptop with the thought, "WHAT IS THAT TERRIBLE SMELL OH GOD." I lifted up the kitty and it was just awful. :cry: My housemate is on an emergency run for febreeze now; it's seriously the worst EVER, lol. But I still love kitty, even if she arbitrarily releases pure evil upon my olfactory sense. :Sp

It's entirely possible that the kitten has a protozoa parasite in her guts that's causing the stench of doom. The last time my family adopted a kitten from a shelter, he had the same problem, but whatever the vet gave us for it cleared it up no problem.
Of course, then there's the ordinary, natural variety of stench of doom that pets can produce....
(still jealous, stink and all =P)

says they dewormed her, but there's also a number of vets in the area that will do a free checkup within seven days of adoption, so we'll get her checked out shortly. Just in case.

The protozoa I'm thinking of is a single-celled parasite that isn't touched by the regular deworming medicines (since they're designed to act against nematodes a/k/a roundworms). It could also be the super cheap quality food she was getting at the shelter, which I totally don't blame them for (it's better than no food!!) but probably didn't help.
Vet + average or better quality food. Poor Phoebe, what a reputation to get stuck with so young!

I seem to remember TB saying he wasn't doing the FB thing because of future employment plans??

We met in real life, so I feel that HE probably feels like it's somewhat legit. Can't speak for him though, and I WAS the one who initiated the request.

I do Facebook. I do not link my real identity to TheBoy @ this domain because of professional concerns.
Also, I have reasonable security on my FB.

I have cut most-or-all applications from my facebook--quizzes, etc.
I use it (almost exclusively) to message, inspect friends' profiles, &c.

I haven't had a kitty that size in SO long! We got our current two lounge lizards when they were in the gangly teenaged stage.
Mon, 09/28/2009 - 7:15pm
Delightfully cute kitteh!
Also, ouch on the incredibly horrible smell D:.
Mon, 09/28/2009 - 8:33pm
She is thus christened "Phoebe."
For anyone who never watched Friends or doesn't remember, this is why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7jlGRq8xZ4&feature=related

Is she a smelly cat?
What ARE you feeding her?
I'm trying to keep my wife from seeing this absolutely adorable kitten, because my ears can't take the girly shrieking.
She is adorable, btw.
>.> and my wife...
Mon, 09/28/2009 - 9:08pm
but dear GODS it is foul, lol.
Mon, 09/28/2009 - 9:13pm
I've gone deaf.
I squee like a girl, too.

Looks like a tiny little version of one of my oldest sister's cats. (Between her and her husband they have four... insanity!)
I have to admit, it's a pretty damn cute little ball of allergens (and stench). 'course, as a dog person I don't have much high ground to stand on for the stench question.
Tue, 09/29/2009 - 6:30am
It's a family. My wife and I have four of our own, since we chose cats over kids. Imay be forced to post pictures soon.

oddly enough I think the most adorable things about kittens is there needle sharp claws and teeth. they don't really hurt when they bite you, it's just kinda adorable. of course, the kittens I played with were only play biting me, I'm sure even their tiny jaws could hurt quite a bit.

Kittens are quite adorable. Beware if she tries to suckle upon your tasty flesh, because then she will kneed you with claws. But the purring is adorable...adorable pain.
Tue, 09/29/2009 - 8:01am
This morning when I came downstairs she was sitting on the couch looking at me, and the second I started walking towards her she started purring so loud I could hear it from across the room. I melted and died.
And um, rather like some Intimate Historians I know, she has a fascination with boobs. <.>
Her level of adorable even counteracts my fear that at any time she could release a demon out of her bowels onto my clothes.
Tue, 09/29/2009 - 11:07am
I am now officially jealous of your cat...
Tue, 09/29/2009 - 12:38am
... the cuteness of it all! Thank god I am not diabetic.

I almost married a woman who kept ten cats in an apartment :() and she was a worse housekeeper than me!
Fortunately, I came to my senses in time...

Well, the two dogs *do* take up some of the space that they cats don't. Four cats is more than enough, though... Damn, but those furballs really go through kitty litter.
