Last week we found an abandoned kitten between our wall and our (rabbit proof) fence. Gosh did he have a voice on him! Over the next few days we tried to find the mother, but, alas, to no avail. He’s been taking up a lot of my waking time this last week. It’s quite amazing how he grows from one day to the next – a week ago he could barely walk, now he can walk backwards, and climb, and wag his tail, and retract his claws (although not on command – yet), and wash himself a bit, and lie on the floor in “typical cat positions”.
Nothing woodworkery here, he’s just very very very very cute, and maybe he’ll make you smile!
We were going to call him Jussi (after Jussi Björling, the greatest ever tenor, imo), but he doesn’t scream any more, so we’ve settled on Vasco – he’s portuguese and he likes to explore.
We’re not going to be able to keep him – our gi-huge dog doesn’t like cats, and our 2 existing cats (aged about 8, although we’ve only had them for 2 years, and they’re pretty dog savvy) don’t like him one little bit. He’ll shortly be going, insha’allah, to a good home in the great city of Lisbon.
