New kitten...very young....
 
Linda mentioned needing a cheaper truck/van to run....10 mpg just sucked...and so I hit the local Craigslist.....'99 S10 with topper AND a ladder rack.....4 cyl, iron duke engine....fresh auto trans decent tires, etc.....the man took 1900.....so tmrw or when we get the cash out...I need crawl under it to look for frame rust....body/bed look fine should get at least 20 mpg.....

then we get a chance to sell the 3500 V8 van....should get at least a grand for it.....it's a '99 also.....

AND the kicker, the pickup been setting for several weeks, and sure enough when we popped the hood....there it was a NEW KITTEN, little tan critter with it's eyes all gooped up, so wife of course fell in INSTANT LOVE and we brought kitten home.....truck owner never knew it was there.....good thing we opened the hood before driving it.....so we brought kitten home and wife cleaned up the eyes, and they seem to have color, and follow motion.....so kitten in in a box....where else with food/water and wife now looking for kitten food.....

SO after loosing her Mom early this year, AND her ~14 y/o Chiwawa, AND one of the two cats also 14 y/o and got sick and ran away.....the other 14 y/o male cat is here doing ok.....

so wife has a bit of hope now.....been a shitty year on top of all the rest of the public BS.....much less house needs a roof, and we just dropped 300 bux yet AGAIN into her damn car a/c ......

Well, 720pm here now wife got back some 3 hours ago....and something the vet gave us seems to feed the kitten pretty good.....chowed down twice...and even water intake, and crapped in the litter box, just a mini turd like an inch long....but seems to favor the litter box.....thankfully, so far.....and the running around little voice is funny, under my desk legs, under the couches.....and I have to watch my step.....as for the eyes....some meds and a visit on Friday....'

little critter has picked up his step.....4 wheel drive is activated.......two witnesses......and BO, the large ~14 y/o cat just seems to ignore him.....

:dance::lol:
