Meet Bizbee- the new kitten...


 This little kitten was the sole survivor of  a litter thrown from a car.  He's just adorable and we waited a week after meeting him, in hopes that someone else would adopt him, but no one did so we went back to the vet's office to get him. He may end up with a shorter leg due to an injury from the car toss, but right now he seems fine and is VERY active, a busy bee, hence the name Bizbee. 

He's very bright and seems to learn something new every hour, like most kittens, I guess.  Our other cats are just starting to get used to the fact that there is an alien in their midst, but these things take time and we prefer to do it slowly.  Right now, the master bathroom is his main room, and he's allowed the run of the office/bathroom, too, so he can really stretch his legs.  He's not allowed any alone time with any of the pets at this time, because he's SO little- when he steps on the bathroom scale, it says "2".  lol  Beez has killed rats bigger than Bizbee! 


He loves to sleep in the top level of the scratching post in our bathroom.  When he lies flat, you can't even tell he's up there. 


 He's so little, his eyes look huge.


 When he finally conks out, he likes a cuddle, either in my lap or on my chest, in the crook of my arm.  It's so sweet, my heart melts.  My arm breaks, but my heart melts.  LOL


 Today he figured out how to get onto the window sill.  First he starts from a small cardboard box up into a rocking chair, then onto the sill.  When he fell off, he went right back to the box to start over, smart boy!


 He loves when Daddy plays with him, that ball can go fast!  And it took 3 days for him to stop being scared of the crinkly tube, but now he's zipping thru it like a champ!


I think his mother must have been a black cat, because Bizbee gets really excited when he sees Sammie, our black cat.  He goes right for Sammie's tummy, which scares our Sammie to death, but he's being really good about the baby.  Sammie always likes the new kids, because he's always looking for a friend, the 2 oldest cats don't like him (or anybody else) and Sammie takes it personally. 

So there you have it- another new addition to our menagerie.  Believe me, we had no intention of adding to the numbers around here, but sometimes stuff happens and you just have to deal with it.  Hopefully he'll fit right in and the others will accept him and all will be right at the zoo.  :)

I am just thankful that you were willing to take him in. I dislike people who love kittens, but when they become adult cats don't take responsibility for them and have them spayed or neutered an then end up throwing kittens out of cars. We did a neighborhood clean up a few years back and had 12 cats fixed, but it basically all started when a family down the street threw out their whole male Himalayan cat. I really am glad that there are people like you who won't allow these unfortunate animals to be killed.

It's so nice you were able to take on this sweet little kitten. I think it was meant to be. You and your husband are Bizbee's angels.

Adorable! Love those fat baby bellies. A few more pounds and he will be as big as my Tookie.

You are awesome for taking him in. It's funny how those things work out. :)

He's an adorable little guy, and I hope he finds his place really quickly!

In our years of cat-taking-in, we had quite a few come in with injuries or birth defects, and it was always so amazing to see how the kittens (and then cats) didn't even notice and carried on like their litter mates! We once had a kitten born with badly bent front legs who walked with a modified crawl and it was SO amazing watching her run around with her siblings, learning how to climb on top of things and then leaping off again without any hesitation. (Always made *my* heart skip a beat, but she did fine!)

It does make my heart hurt to think that there are people out there who will actively try to harm these babies. :/

Thank you for being so generous and for sharing with us. Bizbee is truly a blessing and blessed all at the same time.

Love the pictures of him! I am not a cat person, mainly because I am highly allergic to them. BUT, I do love to look at kitten pictures.

He is so lucky to come home with you .... fate sometimes takes over and that seems the story in this little kitty's life.
