The Kitten Dilema

I recently wrote about a kitten that my sister-in-law, Felice, was raising and would need a home soon (read here).  We decided we would meet the kitten on Sunday (today) and make the decision then. At the time I did not have pictures of the kitten but Felice sent a few the other day.

A day or two after we heard about the gold kitten, Felice informed us of another kitten that needed rescue. This was a female that was being taken care of at the vet’s office where Felice works. Her litter-mates have a home to go to when they are old enough and she also had someone interested in adopting her but, if I understood it correctly, that person plans on keeping her outside, perhaps as a mouser. I don’t know.

Now it gets even more complicated. a couple days after we find out about the girl kitten, we also find out that Felice and her husband decided to keep the gold cat. That is a good thing because even though they have about 100 cats, give or take, they lack a gold cat.

You would think that would simplify things but wait… Felice knows someone who is fostering a male Siamese kitten that needs a home.


Both of these kittens will be together for us to see when we visit Felice later today. It will be difficult for us because we don’t even know if we are ready for a fourth kitten and now we will be forced to reject one or more kittens. This kitten business is tough.

    Oh my, you are in a big problem! Two kittens, so cute of course, maybe you take them both :-). I am sure it is diffucult to say no to the other.
    Waiting to see your next post with pics of your new kitten(s).

    All the lovely kittens. I had the hardest time choosing one from Rosie’s litter and I knew that all the others would be going to safe, loving homes. I would need to rescue that wee one that will be kept outside, but it’d be hard to reject the others.
    Can’t wait to see what you decide.

    Oh my!!!! I think the best thing is to see which one chooses YOU……(I am partial to the one that they are thinking of making a mouser, the one before the Siamese cat)……the Siamese is a boy right? That could cause a problem with your boys that are there………..the pretty tabby is a girl right? There won’t be as much fighting for territory. I am sure that the one that is meant to be will make the decision much easier. The Siamese would probably have a super easy time of being adopted……..I would hate to see that tabby end up in a barn. That’s a GORGEOUS cat!!!

    It’s a good thing we live on the opposite side of the country, because my human totally loves that girl! She thinks from the photos that she can probably be trained to do tricks.
