Little Kitten


Little Kitten

This little fella appeared at my back doorstep after last night's storm. He's all alone and looks to be about 3 weeks old. I don't know where he came from. Kansas?! I took him in, gave him a bath, a new bed and something to eat. He needs a name! I need suggestions... Thank You

Doesn't he look sad. Poor little lost soul. Three weeks is very young - can he lap yet? Wonder if you'll have to feed him from a dropper! Does your own cat accept him? OH suggests Gandalf! He's very beautiful.

Thanks Sue. Sadly, Costello has passed on so this would be his replacement. He does lap if I physically open his mouth and shove food in. Cow milk isn't good for them. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm sorry to hear about Costello, he was beautiful. I used to enjoy seeing photos of him. I suppose you miss him now ...
Pretty little kitten :) Male or female ? that would influence you decision on a name.

Aw, Paul, what a gorgeous little kitty...I'm guessing you were meant to find him and him you!!!
Lots of names spring to mind, so many choices!
Storm? Oz? Cookie as in tough little cookie?
The list is endless but I'm so pleased he turned up at your door. He's just perfect..
I'm sorry about Costello passing away. That's sad news.
I'm sure you'll come up with the right name.

So sorry to hear about your loss of Costello. He looked a beautiful boy in the pictures you posted of him. Looks like a good coincidence that this kitten found you, Paul. How about 'Gulliver' as a suggestion?

He’s a dear little cuddly sweetie Paul … how lucky that he found you! I think “Cookie” is a good suggestion, or maybe Velvet?

Thank you all for your suggestions and comments. I literally had to teach this guy to eat. Once he discovered what his mouth is for, he ate half a can of kitty food and found the litter box with no mistakes or messes. That's huge. Good suggestions thank you. xx

Sorry to hear about Costello Bathgate.

The new kitten is a cutie. You are pretty good in choosing unusual names. I am sure you will choose the right one.
But I put my suggestion here: Maya for female and Pluto for male.
Good luck with training him/her

Thanks Klahanie. It's a boy. So many good suggestions. He seems to be settling in well.

I'm so sorry to hear Costello went over the rainbow.
They do say you don't find a cat that's right for you, the cat finds you.
I'm wondering if this little chap is so young, should he still be with his mum? It might be a good idea to have him checked out as weaning him too soon might not be a good idea...just saying.
As for names perhaps Storm?
