    I picked my son up from school yesterday and took him to petco. I wanted to surprise him with adopting a kitten. I contacted the lady in charge of the pet rescue and she met us up there. We saw two kittens and my son loved this one.

    He was bottle fed at 10 days old and is the most loving kitten! I picked my son up from pre k today, walked in the house and the kitten ran straight to him. I'm so glad they have bonded so far. My son knew immediately he wanted this one too. He is 12 weeks old.

    He also is doing well with my little poodle, they are already playing together. But, is a different story with my senior dog. Its getting there tho. It is so funny. My bigger dog will try to intimidate him. Georgie will arch his back and puff up his tail and strut right past her without a worry. Looks like Georgie is trying to rule the roost already lol

    Meet my son and his kitten Georgie!

    Oh--they are both darling! What a wonderful idea. I'm sure those two will be the best of friends for many years to come.

    Awww, what a great picture. They both looks so cute and they really do appear to have bonded. Tuxedo cats are the bestest cats. The most devoted wonderful cat I ever had was a tuxedo cat. He was my special boy. I have had loads of wonderful cats since that have broken my heart when I had to say goodbye, but there was just something extrordinary about my Jez cat.

    How darling!!! We could never have pets when raising our son because of his allergies. When he was about 11 years old a mother cat decided to have her kittens in a barn, so became accustomed to playing with them outside, taking allergy medicine. Today he is 35 living on 20 acres, 2 cats, 3 kittens, six dogs (includes their 3 AKC malamutes) a wife and a son plus the BIL, girlfriend and MIL living with them. Raising your child with a pet helps bring out the love, affection and companionship. Congratulations on such a lucky boy and cute kitten! :thumbup:

    I couldn't agree more with one of the posters above, tuxedo cats make the best cats. My childhood cat was a female tuxedo and she was just the best most lovable kitty. I have a tuxedo now and again she is also a love and very smart. The new rescue kitty Misty is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but a love as well.

    Congrats on Georgie, your son looks so happy and he's a pretty kitty and your son is very handsome.

    The cat will get even with the older dog! Mine has nailed our pup a few times but she hasn't learned yet to stay away from kitty's claws!

    You'd be surprised at how faithful a cat can be. Our son at that age got a kitten that DH had found on the highway. Gave it to a worker who brought it back and said it hated everybody in his family. DH brought it home "Till we could find it a home" and it took one look at DS and DS took one look at Warlock and they bonded instantly. They were inseparable till DS went to the Navy. Warlock wondered through the house for a week or so, crying for DS, then moved out of the house and lived the rest of his life in the back yard, only coming back in when DS came home on leave.
    Faithful till death, that dear Warlock was.

    All of our cats have been rescues and they have all been wonderful sweet kitties. Having been bottle fed, Georgie will be a great "people" kitty. He and your son are just precious.
