I arrived back from Pittsburgh to a fluffball!
He is an applehead Siamese (more formally known as Thai), as opposed to the alien-esque wedge-head Siamese. Byron and I were convinced we wanted to name him Koko, since we both read The Cat Who... books when we were young, but it just doesn't seem to fit him. So right now he is tentatively named Manchego (Monty for short) after my favorite cheese.
|The resemblance is uncanny.|
The downside is that he cries...and cries...and cries. Any of you who know Siamese know that when they want you to know that they are unhappy, they are not shy about telling you. Loudly. And since this little one is missing his mommy and his siblings, Byron has only slept a few nonconsecutive hours since the kitten arrived yesterday.
|He won't sit on my lap yet, but he is curled up next to me as I blog.|
More kitten pictures!
|I love his salt-and-pepper tail!!!! But I think it will turn brown as he gets older.|
