YO! ZMK Knits!

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

There is a saying.

That saying is, "You find true love when you are not looking for it."

That saying is quite true. That is what happened with ZMrK and I.

It happened to both of us last weekend. We were not looking for another cat, and we absolutely were not looking for a kitten. Then we met this little booger who was for adoption at our vet's office.




(Gratuitous "cats n rack" shot there.)

Luciano is about 3 months old, and is as devilish as he is cute.




We realize that he looks like a mini Ken, and I realize he looks like a mini George (another former cat of mine) as well. Most black domestic shorthairs have this look.

He hasn't quite grown into his legs, which are like that of a Great Dane puppy.

He sure knows how to stretch though:


Ellie is slowly warming to his charms, but for now looks perpetually annoyed.


They have at least both been sleeping on the bed with us the past two nights. Luciano seems to be a pillow cat -- he likes to sleep next to our heads. That works for now, while he weighs about 3-5 pounds, but within a few months he is probably going to more than double his weight. It will be very interesting to see how that happens, huh?

He had a buddy at the vet's office in Atari, the office cat. Atari is a big love, and he and Luciano had some wrestling matches:

There are also some kittens a month younger than Luciano for adoption, but he was a little too much for them to play with.


The good news is that Ellie does like to play rough; she and Ken did it constantly, with her usually being the instigator. I think she'll be happy (and maybe lose a little bit of excess weight) once she realizes that Luciano is game for it. I can't wait to see the forced grooming!

So, welcome Luciano to our family!!!

I swore that I'd never get a kitten.

Luciano made me a liar. Stupid cute cat!

Awww! What an evil little sweetie! That video looked like the immortal fight of basement cat and ceiling cat. Next time, dastardly ceiling cat! Next time!

You know how they say gentlemen prefer blonds? I think you guys just prefer black cats. (Hee hee, my Fatzah was a black cat--and all the black cats of Squeaky's litter were gone when we got there...)

Give Luciano and Ellie a good kitty smoosh for me!

OMG, that was hilarious! They look like my 2 kids when they "fight".

Congratulations on the new addition! He is quite the cutie.

Aww hello Kitteh Pavarotti! What a cutie! And like Bezzie said, some people just have a preference for certain type of cat. I like my orangies, you like the blackies. =)

Lucky, lucky kitty! So handsome, and so absolutely delightfully, kittenly devilish! I love when things just fall into place - he was meant for you. Congrats!

He's adorable -- and he's hit the jackpot. Loving humans and a spoiled rotten existence await little Luciano. Good choice of humans, kitty boy!
