Introducing Pixel

I had arranged to take in four kittens from someone who's cat had a litter and she couldn't keep them.  As I drove to meet her, she asked if we also had room for a five-month-old kitten (one remaining cat from the momma cat's previous litter).  The lady said the rest of the litter had either run off or been hit by cars or attacked by dogs and she was afraid the same thing would happen to this cat.  The five month old cat, which they were calling Rat, was very sweet.  She and the four kittens were living in the lady's van - the lady just left the door open so the momma cat could come in and out to feed the kittens.  I offered to take the momma cat also, but the lady said she wanted to keep her, but that she would get her spayed so she wouldn't have any more litters.  So that is how I wound up with Rat and four five-week-old kittens.  I changed Rat's name to Pixel, and quickly fell in love with her. 


Pixel is doing great so far.  She is beautiful and sweet and gets along well with the other cats.  She likes to play with feather toys and will happily stalk and chase that feather all over the place until I get tired of dragging it around.  She's been to the vet and is in perfect health, so I am hoping she can get adopted quickly, before I get too attached!

Oh she is cute! And what a great name for her! If she isn't adopted out quickly I would be very surprised!!

What a lovely girl. So sad what happened to her siblings. At least she is safe with you now. We just love her markings.

She's adorable! It's truly wonderful of you to take her, along with the other kittens. So sorry to read about Pixel's siblings, though. I'm glad the mom cat will have her forever home--and at last be spayed.

Paws crossed for Pixel finding her own forever home, before you get too attached. (Looking at that sweet face, remaining detached would be impossible!)

Pixel is indeed adorable, but where's the four kittens??? Are you trying to out-kitten me? I think you're on your way to becoming a cat person. Welcome to the club.

I'm glad Pixel is with you now so she won't meet the fate of her siblings. She is quite striking.

Pixel is so pretty. I hope she finds a wonderful, safe, forever home soon. Didn't the woman learn after the first litter that the cat should be spayed?
