We got a new kitten! His name is Fozzie and while he can never replace sweet little Oscar, I love him a lot.
When we first brought him home from the shelter we were nervous that he would be a people-hating dick, because he spent the first 2 days hiding and running away from us and hissing. But by the end of the second day it was like a switch flipped, and he is the cuddliest, snuggliest, most playful kitty ever. He plays with three toys at the same time because he just can't decide which one is the most fun. And he sleeps through the night, spending the entire night curled up on my chest. He's very small for his age- he's almost 5 months old but looks like he's about 3 months- and he's really skinny. He's been eating more and more as the week has gone on, though. We will get him all fattened up and healthy in no time!
Also, his eyes are a really crazy yellow gold color that's a little creepy when he stares right at you at night. And he just fell backwards off the couch while I was typing this because he got a little too enthusiastic while trying to find a comfortable spot on my feet.
