    My newest quilting assistant

    We adopted a new furbaby today. Bumble is 3 months old. He and his brother were found locked in an abandoned house and taken to the animal shelter. He is underweight, but we will work hard to fatten him up! I hope someone adopts his brother soon, We were tempted to take both, but we already have 2 adult cats.

    Bumble is cute as can be. Go get his brother!!

    I had 3 adult cats and an adult dog(12-17yrs old), when I adopted a 1 year old kitty. None of them would play with her. Poor Luna kitty would cry in her sleep. We adopted her brother and sister a week later and another one a year later.

    Go get his brother..he is precious and I know he misses his little pal. Two little kittens were sleeping on my deck a week ago...they were about 9 weeks old I think. They ran when we tried to pet them. I put some food out and they came back and ate it but never came again. Could it have been because Mr. Peach threw himself at the door leading to the deck? I think he is determined to be an "only cat" in this house!

    He is so cute. Glad that you adopted him. I think that you have room for his brother, after all I have six furbabies. They can go anywhere except the sewing room, so think real hard about going to get his brother.

    Bumble is a very sweet cuddly little boy. The only thing stopping me from getting the brother is the fact that my 2 adult cats are having a very hard time adjusting to this kitten. A 2nd kitten would make it twice as hard on them I think. The poor girls havent even eaten since the baby got here My hands are full trying to make Bumble feel at home and helping the big girls adjust to him too.

    Bumble is very cute. Others are right your older cats will not play with him. Brothers need to be together. I have four cats. Oldest one is 16 Years old and has never played with the two - 11 year olds nor the 5 year old.

    In my experience cats don't do threes all that well, especially if they are of different sexes. Remember, they are not pack animals like dogs are; they are independent thinkers and territorial.

    Your new baby needs his brother and so do the others. I'm willing to bet you will find things are actually better with two little ones than with the one.

    Pooh, 'older' cats will be as charmed by the new babies as we 'older' moms are too!

    He is cute, but he looks forlorn. A little lost. But he will get better.

    Bumble looks so lost. He's missing his brother maybe grieving. After all they survived being locked up together. His brother would provide a playmate. I have 4 cats and the older ones don't want to play.

    I think that if you brought brother home, Bumble and his brother would buddy up and allow the older two to be together while these two play together. It would probably make everything much easier. Besides, you know your heart is breaking for brother - go get him!!

    He's a little doll.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I understand your feeling, everytime I think of Scarface I tear up, I can't seem to go get another furbaby yet and it's been over a year.

    What a sweet kitty and what a unique name. I agree that 4 cats are easier to manage than 3 cats, espcially if cat #3 is a kitten.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
