Default I must share the adorable feline that has entered my life

About 3 months ago my husband heard this little man crying in the rain on the wall next to the driveway in our block of units.

Less than 500g! So very tiny!
There were a couple of adult cats around, and since we didn't know if they were mum or not, we moved him to where they could reach and left for a while. After 10 min, husband went back and he was still there alone and wet.
This lead to him being brought inside, dried and a late night run to the shops for kitten milk and food after desperately searching messybeast for advice
3 days later, we took him to the vets and received a clean bill of health, the information that he is about 5 weeks old, and has no microchip.

After some hard thinking, it went from "get him chipped, shotted, fixed and a good home" to just "get him chipped, shotted and fixed. He's staying"

So, he is now spoilt absolutely rotten, but he returns the love

3 months and 2kg. Growing so fast!
Beautiful blue eyes are here to stay

Snopes, please adore the creature that has precipitated my inevitable decline into crazy cat lady territory - Sebastian!

3.5 kg and 5 months old. I think we might have a big cat on our hands

The bow tie! Argh!

My family also had a "temporary" "foster" cat who is still with us two years later. The kitty mind control is very powerful that way.

I think I might have ruptured my own eardrum with the high-pitch squeal I just emitted. Thanks a lot.

He looks a lot like my user-namesake Erwin Schrödinger kitty. He picked me out in similar fashion, and turned out to be a hefty 19 lb boy.


It's wonderful that you were able to take Sebastian in. It sounds like he has a great home.

I'm so glad to have him. It is amazing how many personality quirks can be packed in such a small furry covering.

Young white cat with stripey yellow tail!

-- there's one of those bugging me for pats right now. You don't suppose he's going to get them, do you?

Oh god, the bow tie...

...and yes, he's gonna get bigger. For comparison, my kitties are just about hitting 3.5 kilos now in their sedentary old age

That bowtie photo is one of the most adorable I've seen. You have a real doll on your hands.

oh ... how cute
welcome Sebastian ... you have trained your humans well

the bowtie picture ... enough said
my personal favourite is the wrapped in blanket with stretched paws ... pink toe pads!!!

& he looks very good on your shoulder, kissing your cheek

thank you for caring for him & giving him a home ... you are good humans!
just always remember your life purpose is to serve him and all will be well.

have fun!
