Grandmother’s New Kitten

Cat, Kitten, Baby, StrayMeet the newest family member – Terry. Not actually living at OUR house, this cute bundle of joy resides with my mom who lives close by. Picked up off the street by a friend and delivered to her house in hopes of finding him a home. How could she say no? A trip to the vet estimated the kitten’s age to be around five weeks. Too soon for him to be out on his own; as evident by the way he attached himself to his new mother. After some confusion on picking out a name – it was originally thought this was a little girl – the kitten known as Barbara became the kitten known as Terry. And Terry is very happy in his new digs. My mom’s other cat, Mary Alice? Not so enthusiastic.
