This poptart was the meanest little thing to ever be pulled out of a barn, switchblades drawn. He was also the only one of his litter of six to survive parvo and predator, but not without spending a week at the vet's office hooked up to the world's tiniest IV drip. He's now 8 months old and whines when I'm not where he can see me.

UPDATE: He is turning one year old in June and we've named him "Sid Fishes" Cheesy, I know, but it was fitting. For the first couple of months, he slept in my hair and woke me up trying to nurse on my ear. He's adjusted a bit and now sleeps at my feet, but still demands to be picked up and hugged whenever I come through the front door. We chase each other through the house until we both pant and he still fights dirty.

UPDATE II: Sid is a couple of months shy of two years now and just got his very own puppy to play with. He lives the happy life of a slightly chubby house cat and spends his days currently running mad dashes around my house with the puppy. Sometimes they even still let me play.

Protection by ~ti-jeanThis photograph, Protection by ~ti-jean, is simply an entire orchestra of amazing. The colors, the focus, the angle, the details, the contrast between human and animal are all superb and they all make up an emotional impact on the person viewing it.

ahaha ... yup, these teeny weeny claws and teeth can wrought havoc! A tiny little kitten we rescued from from an empty locked-up old apartment was so terrified, it bit me right through my thumbnail into my thumb ... in addition to the network of gashes all over my hands and arms! We didn't have the luxury of time to get the kitten used to us ... the people with the keys to the apartment allowed us just a little time to get the kitty (neighbours had heard its little mews in the empty apartment for a few days ... it must have crawled in there through some hole and couldn't find its way out).


Thanks for sharing the lovely story of Sid. How is he now? ^^

Reminds me of the kitten I rescued from a thorn bush. That little bugger was adorable but he had those claws out! >.<

Wonderful picture, it's very inspiring!
