A kitten's life in photos 11 to 31 days old by Talty A kitten's life in photos 11 to 31 days old by Talty
Since I posted the photo of my new kitty I've received requests to post more photos and updates on his progress, some people suggested making a photo journal of him... and being the cat lover I am, I couldn't resist :lol: I didn't want to flood my watcher's inbox with photos of my kitty so I put them all together like this telling his story, I think it shows his progress beautifully XD you can see how much and how fast he grows up, it's insane D:

And no, he doesn't have a name yet! We are still waiting for him to decide his name, our guess is that he's still too small to know it (Edit: a bit after posting this he settled on Freddie, it fits him perfectly!). He has a very gentle and playful character, he's very sweet and he wants to be around us all the time. When called he comes running, looking visibly excited and jumps right on my lap. And now I'm off to bake cupcakes to celebrate the first time he uses the litter box, my days of helping him "go" are finally over XD

NOTE: I'm aware that I'm not the best photographer, but I'm trying to improve and learn how take beautiful artistic photos, so I took these photos as practice. I'm aware some of them are grainy and out of focus, and I would really appreciate tips or tutorials on how to take better photos of my cats, specially because they move so much XD

Aw, so cute!  I've had several rescue animals- mostly dogs-the last one was a beagle, several years old, and had just been tied up and abandoned.  It took a couple months to get his weight back up and a little longer to get him to come up to any of us on his own.  Now he's fat, lazy, and loves to sit on the couch with his toys next to my aunt (she took him as soon as he was healthy and social again).

Last year on November, my dad brought home a 2 month female kitten. He said he found her hidden under his truck on one of the tires; in reality I tried not to get attached 'cause I thought he would take her away soon enough. Days after, I was surprised when my parents kept telling me when a I going my cat proper food - shocking considering knowing my parents I thought the kitten wouldn't stay for long.
I gave her the name "Shiro" :aww:
She sure isn't the cuddling type, and she doesn't show much gratitude to my dad for bringing her here lol
Shiro is annoying most of the day and doesn't often show affection, but even if I was gifted with the most annoying kitten, I will still love that bothersome furball :love:

My family just recently adopted a kitten about a month ago when my dad found my little baby hanging out in the his of his car on top of his battery. He had me get her some food, and all we had was canned dog food. We think she hitched a ride from a town an hour away that we had visited the previous night. We call her Farren, which means wanderer. My little wanderer is 14 weeks old this past Sunday. Now she is such a joy in my life. She chases the the dogs around, and howls like a Siamese cat (which my mom who had owned many in the past says that she definitely has Siamese in her) when I leave for work.

Que hermoso!! Me recuerda a mi Cati. Me la encontre de dos meses hecha bolita en una tarde lluviosa, y tenia una hinchazon llena de pus en su carita. Se curo en unos dos meses aprox, pero se gano el corazon de nosotros, y hasta de mi perrita que no es muy social jaja. Ahora juegan como hermanas.

How can taking photos of cute kittens be not a fun thing to do? =P
All the cats I adopted were from the RSPCA (Australian equivalent of ASPCA) :)
Keep us updated with all your cats

Que lindo que es tu gato. Me da gusto que existan personas que se preocupan por los animales y me llena de orgullo que a tu gatito le vaya tan bien. Es hermoso, y me encanto la foto en la cual esta dormido con los ojos abiertos; yo tengo un amigo (humano) que hace lo mismo, lo cual es muy gracioso.

Espero que siga creciendo grande y fuerte y que pases muy lindos y divertidos momentos con tu gatito.

Es tan lindo el proceso de crianza de un gatito~

Estoy un poco triste leyendo esto. No me malinterpretes, me da mucho gusto que alguien tenga el cariño, la bondad y la disposición de hacerse cargo de un bello animalito, pero hace una semana yo perdí a mi gato, "Pacho", de 8 años. Simplemente se fue y no he sabido nada de él, lo cuál me acongoja un poco ya que estaba algo maltrecho, producto de sus peleas callejeras con otros gatos. Es triste que sea altamente probable que no lo vuelva a ver, pero agradezco todo el tiempo que pasé con él.

Y, no sé, me pone feliz saber que hay personas que tienen ese corazón generoso para hacerse cargo de una mascota y volverlo un integrante más de la familia.

=3

Saludines~

Gracias, y te entiendo, los gatos se vuelven autenticamente miembros de la familia y es sumamente doloroso perderlos. Espero que regrese, nunca se sabe, pero aun si no lo hace estoy segura que sabe cuanto lo amabas. Yo por eso no dejo salir a mis gatos, lamentablemente no es seguro para ellos el exterior :( menos aun porque vivo en ciudad.

I love your clay work and I love your affection for animals. I was going to become a veterinary nurse and during my work experience a stray tabby was brought in. He was fully grown and absolutely beautiful. When nobody came to claim him he was going to be sent to a re-homing centre but I couldnt let him go.

Hes been with us for quite a while now and is the most good natured cat I have ever known. He doesnt bite of scratch and is very quiet. When hes had enough he just puts his paw up to bat your hand away. I chose not to become a Vet nurse because I could not deal with putting animals down but Im glad I got my little guy :)

What a beautiful history, he does sound like a wonderful guy and I'm so glad that you adopted him, congratulations :D and I understand why you couldn't become a veterinary nurse, I feel the exact same way and I could never do anything like that either.
