    It followed me home, Ma, honest

    Guess you're never too old for that line to work. My DH went off to hunting camp this weekend to get things ready - and found a momma cat and 4 kittens living in the shed. He fed them, naturally, but only this little one came to him for some loving. So...of course she had to come home. She's in the office at home, with a vet appointment this afternoon to get her checked out before introducing her to our other 2 cats. We've named her Katniss - with the 100% vote of our DGDs - who are all big on the Hunger Games books. She is a real sweetie - and so is hubby !!! Name:  Katniss.jpg

    Both are definitely keepers!!!! Katniss looks like a polydactyl and is too cute to leave alone.

    Very cute Kitty. Great Husband. A shame the others couldn't be saved also. I always have my newest checked out too. I have four that was found and saved.

    She is beautiful. Looks like carmel candy colors to me.

    OMlG my son brought one home that looks almost like yours except she is a bit lighter in the face. He calls her Tiger but I am calling her Houdini because she can get out of the shed that we keep her in the back yard! He was house sitting for his sister on Memorial Day weekend and this little ball of fur was obviously abandoned and in the corner of her yard. She was barely eating on her own but is now doing really good and growing fast.

    Awww ... all three are keepers (the hubby, the kitty and name (in that order ))!!

    And I agree with above poster ... she looks like a polydactyl (extra digit on front left foot).
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    So sweet of your good husband to adopt this kitten. Hope he took the others to a shelter or something.

    As an added note - he just wasn't able to get near or catch the others - they were already fairly feral even at so young an age. For some reason, this little one proved the old saying "you don't pick a cat, a cat picks you". Camp is in the hill country - in the midst of a cattle / sheep ranch - so lots of "natural" food around. Mom seemed to be doing fairly well taking care of them - so hopefully - even if they are wild kitties, they will be ok. We both have to accept that he did what he could do. Vet check was good - waiting for FIV and leukemia test results today.

    She's a doll. My husband would have done the same thing! Looks like we are both lucky enough to have keepers.
