Such a cutie! Nice markings! I would enjoy having a kitten (haven't had one since 2002). But we will never adopt one, because it will outlive us.disbelief

 Plenty of adult kitties need good homes Charlie. We stopped adopting kittens at least 40 years ago, because for some reason we spoiled every kitten we ever had. And loved every adult cat as much if not more.

 I just haven't adopted a KITTEN since 2002, that's all. Rescued Schmootz in '99...he was three. he was here for fifteen more years.  Micky was the kitten, he was under our front steps in '02 and he lived here for 14 years. When Mazel (our tortie) died right after her 20th birthday, we adopted a bonded pair that came from the same household. Somebody either got sick or died. All-orange Leo (age 11) and all-black Onyx, who was five. Leo crossed the Rainbow Bridge six months ago, but Onyx is very affectionate and loveable and even at ten, she's still a great mouser. Killed seven mice this spring. Normally, we only get one or two every few years.

And then we rescued Heidi a year later. She's twelve now. A big fuzzy Persian princess who is useless, but nice to look at. So our house has been a kitty geriatric center and a kitty nursing home for years and years.

I miss my Orangy Boy a lot, and I would like to find another one. Black cats are cool, but orange tabbies are the best! blankstare

I adopted two kittens 2 years ago. I figured it was probably my last chance to have kittens that I could see to the end. I had planned to adopt older cats, but after dealing with two old sick cats I wasn't ready to go back to doing that any time soon. Plus, I figured my then 13-year-old cat would be more accepting of kittens than another mature cat. I wasn't wrong, all three get along really well from the get go.

 We tried to bring a young orange tabby in here in February, but Onyx and Heidi would have none of it. They were extremely upset and mostly hid for the two days he was here. It appeared he had been dumped somewhere and spent some time on the street, and got involved with ferals. He was not really very sociable. Too aggressive. And the two females, who are now 10 and 12, are too set in their ways. Especially after Leo went bye-bye last fall.

Onyx was Leo's half-sister...they came from the same house...and they got along fine. Heidi ignored him after he became too old and feeble to be any threat to her. It took Onyx and Heidi almost three years to be able to co-exist and stop scrapping. Now, they're okay with each other most of the time.

I guess the orange kitty, whom we called Schnitzel, upset the balance of power.

I don't know how they'd react to a kitten, or a domesticated indoor older cat. I don't know if we'll ever find out, either.

Maybe one will just fall into our laps, as Micky, Mazel, Schmootz, and Heidi did.
