This poptart was the meanest little thing to ever be pulled out of a barn, switchblades drawn. He was also the only one of his litter of six to survive parvo and predator, but not without spending a week at the vet's office hooked up to the world's tiniest IV drip. He's now 8 months old and whines when I'm not where he can see me.

UPDATE: He is turning one year old in June and we've named him "Sid Fishes" Cheesy, I know, but it was fitting. For the first couple of months, he slept in my hair and woke me up trying to nurse on my ear. He's adjusted a bit and now sleeps at my feet, but still demands to be picked up and hugged whenever I come through the front door. We chase each other through the house until we both pant and he still fights dirty.

UPDATE II: Sid is a couple of months shy of two years now and just got his very own puppy to play with. He lives the happy life of a slightly chubby house cat and spends his days currently running mad dashes around my house with the puppy. Sometimes they even still let me play.

owie. You were lucky it was an ear. A friend of mine can attest that you don't lie down near a nursing kitten without a shirt on. He said the pain was about as bad as being kicked in the jewels.

ahaha ... yup, these teeny weeny claws and teeth can wrought havoc! A tiny little kitten we rescued from from an empty locked-up old apartment was so terrified, it bit me right through my thumbnail into my thumb ... in addition to the network of gashes all over my hands and arms! We didn't have the luxury of time to get the kitten used to us ... the people with the keys to the apartment allowed us just a little time to get the kitty (neighbours had heard its little mews in the empty apartment for a few days ... it must have crawled in there through some hole and couldn't find its way out).

 

Thanks for sharing the lovely story of Sid. How is he now? ^^

May I use this for my Victims of Bullying site? this is the link. (members.webs.com/s/sitebuilder…

Reminds me of the kitten I rescued from a thorn bush. That little bugger was adorable but he had those claws out! >.<

Wonderful picture, it's very inspiring!

D'awww! This is just adorable! He looks cuter than... a box of kittens! It was really kind what you did ^-^ The world would be a better place with more people like you.
What a cute photo. Perhaps he has just been yelled at for having an accident on the carpet that wasn't protection with plastic carpet protection and now he is in the cat house. His owner should have used [link] for surface protection products until the cat learned to use the kitty litter. Great shot however.

This photo is one I go back and look at now and again when I've had a rotten day. Or week, or month, for that matter. It's beautiful, and the commentary below is freakin' amazing. Thank you for posting it, and I hope Sid Fishes is doing well in his rulership of your home.
