    Too cute.
    When my son was seven he got HIS first kitten. And boy, that kitten knew who owned him! They were fast friends until the cat died three years ago. Now my son has adopted a new kitten just last week.
    I know your son and his kitten will be fast friends (and the dog too eventually).

    Your son and his kitten are adorable and don't worry about the kitten and the older dog...I have never met a kitty that can't hold it's own with a dog. He will train the dog in short order!

    lol thank all of you! :) It has been a blast having him in our lives so far. My son wants him to sleep in his bed so bad. I told him he will and he has, but doesnt stay in there. My son doesnt understand, cats come and go during the night, that it will happen.

    I do need to get a spray bottle though. Little stinker likes to grab my legs and hold on tight, claws and teeth, playing (I hope lol)

    As I read all the comments, I have a kitten we adopted curled up on my shoulder. He was found lost on the 4th of July. We adopted him from the vet and he makes our day. He and our dog Murphy have such a good time playing together. I felt the pain as it was related the little guy climbs up my leg and back too. Because it is from behind, I try to grab, but sometimes those little claws really feel like needles. We do clip his nails to help with that. So glad your little boy has a pet, we had them all our children's lives too. I think they always bring back special memories. And as someone said, rescue is the best way to go. That is how we have brought our pets into our lives.

    My calico was the same way when she was a kitten, I kept her seperated from my two large dogs (feared they would hurt her) and she escaped walked in between the two dogs and let them know she was boss now. They just looked at her and I am sure they were thinking "Whatever".

    I think your kitten is adorable

    Great story! Our son's first cat picked him when we went to the SPCA for a cat (we adopted an adult [~2yr]), she lived with us for 13 happy years. I hope your two have a great life together.

    I have a tux "Gus" also,
    but she is her own person.
    Hates other cats & dogs (no way).
    But loves me on her own terms, of course.

    If you have adopted a dog [sorry they don't do kittens] you can get FREE DOG FOOD from Pedigree just by sending a copy of your adoption info.

    Here's the link:

    You are so right there! He is doing that now. He plays with my poodle now. And he just walks in front our big dog and hikes his tail up high and struts by her lol

    Update:

    Look at them now! Georgie just follows Andrew around and they play together. I'm loving this. Andrew can just pick him up and the kitten just lets him carry him, no worries what's so ever
