Kavan's Gotcha Day!

Can you believe I have been suffering with this slip of a fur ball for one whole year??? This is what Kavan looked like when Mom first saw him at the breeders. She was actually looking at two other kitties and he just nosed his way right in...

You would have thought Mom would have known better with such forwardness, but no, she had do chose HIM! This is his first night in his nursery at home...

Its hard to imagine he would amount to anything.

I mean, he had no shame!

And even our first trip to the mountain house, he tried to take over MY chair!

Kavan actually had a pretty rough start. The breeder almost wouldn't let him go home with Mom and Dad as he was sneezing alot. Even once he got home, he went through two rounds of antibiotics while the v-e-t tried to figure out what was wrong. This is Kavan as burrito cat...

Finally the v-e-t noticed Kavan kept tilting his head. So he looked further in his ears, which had already been treated for a bad case of ear mites. He had a ruptured ear drum! The fluid from the ear kept draining to his nose and throat, making him sneeze and cough. Once Kavan got on the right antibiotics to treat this, he (unfortunately for me) was fine! (although all the rounds of antibiotics gave him awful squirts!)

Kavan has always been a Daddy's boy. He loves playing and snuggling with Dad.

Sinks, doors, drawers, cabinets, nothing is safe around Kavan!

But he loves Mom lots too, see him cuddling up to her after she had a bit of a nose procedure...

Maybe he is not so bad. I must admit it is nice not being alone so much anymore.

(Thanks to Zoolatry for the graphic!)

Happy Gotcha Day Kavan, you 15 pounds of meezer mancatliness!
